How To Die With Dignity

Death - Clapway

Death is inevitable; we will all die at some point. It can happen in the blink of an eye, one false step and your chance at life is over. Unlike Nintendo games, we are only given one life, and the zero does not count. I am sure there are many who have died that are not proud of their actions leading up to their death. Perhaps they forgot to tell someone how they truly feel, or maybe it was forgetting to clear their Internet history. It is hard to mourn someone who died masturbating, or attempting a backflip off of a roof, one man died from having sex with a horse. These people will be remembered not for the good they may have done throughout their life, but the way they met their untimely death.

Here are 3 tips on how to die with dignity.

1. Write down your ‘final words’ now.
You can die at any moment, however, you can eternally secure your legacy by writing down your “final words” this very second. What do you want to be remembered for?

Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple passed away recently. His final words were, “Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow.”

Henry Ward Beecher was quoted on her deathbed, “Now comes the mystery.”

2. Practice Honesty
Don’t perish holding secrets or grudges. Don’t be around the bush and lie to others. Just express yourself truthfully, be remembered for who you truly are.

3. Don’t die playing video games
It happens more often than you’d think, people dying from a marathon of video games. In 2006, a 26 year-old South Korean man died of exhaustion after playing a video game for 50 hours straight. He was at an Internet café in Taegu where he’d spent the past two days plus playing StarCraft. The man had recently lost his job due to missing work to play the game.

The next time you are planning a big adventure, or simply walking down the street, remember that life is fragile, don’t be an idiot. The following are a few people that probably wish they had a second chance.

Jimi Heselden, owner of Segway, Inc., was killed when he drove his Segway off a cliff and he fell 213 feet into a river.

Daredevil Bobby Leach, the first man to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel, died after complications of slipping on an orange peel.

Kurt Godel, a gifted logician and mathematician, was so paranoid of being poisoned that he would only eat if his wife had cooked it for him. When she was hospitalized for something unrelated, he starved to death.
