He told his friend he thought about the previous night’s conversation and wanted to say his goodbyes now, at dinner.
His friend had said how he has suffered enough in his life and that death would be a welcomed relief. He wasn’t contemplating suicide, but simply stating that if he died, his pain would be gone.
Fear is a bloody liar. So the conversation last night included a goodbye, just to bring peace to the joyful person.
Pretty sure it caught the tired person off guard.
Authenticity is strength. And peace.
But still use our best judgement.
