What I learned from the passing of another celebrity. Rest in Peace, Kobe Bryant
I was inspired to write this post/record this short episode in response to the recent passing of Kobe Bryant, his daughter and the rest of the members on their helicopter when it crashed and left no survivors.
My immediate reaction was shock, and then I got upset. In addition to my feelings, I also couldn't help but wonder WHY I was so upset, upset for someone I did not even know. The critic voice in my head kept saying “well you don't even know the guy, nor his family, why are you so upset?”
I was upset and wanted to know why:
- I don't think there is anything wrong with being upset for someone you don't know who has passed, especially in such a tragic manner
- I wanted to know where this critic voice was coming from and what I could do to understand it
- I believe I am not the only person feeling this way, and if you're not feeling this way for Kobe and this event, then certainly for other people and other events.
I hope this short episode helps you unpack your own feelings and in a way that brings you some peace and also shines some lights on the gifts that these humans are leaving behind.
I hope you enjoy,
