Death-Wellness is so much more than 'death-positive'!

Death-Positive this and Positive-Death that: a Movement. Meh. So much about death, dying, and surviving is *not* going to be or feel positive! Death doesn't need to make us feel good. It is ok to be scared. Lots of our experiences about and around death cannot be reframed towards the bright side. And this is not a bad thing! The genuine cultural shift I see is towards death WELLNESS! And wellness allows for a full range of human response. Wellness does not require us to be positive. So before we try on what we have read is a death-positive response when a friend needs support, let us consider, first, how death-wellness might guide us to reach out. (in my humble opinion 😉)
