I have a hard time dealing with death, not because of what it is, but because of my views of it. I'm a very apathetic person, believe it or not. When someone dies, I really... don't care. I know that sounds coldblooded, and I do worry about the people they leave behind, like my friend. But I don't see death as an end at all, just a ... well literally a passing on. It's nothing good nor bad, it's just a natural end to mortal existance. I think this is especially bad because my friend spoke with his father just a few days ago and everything was fine. But today, he didn't wake up.
I feel like a horrible friend because I can't say or do what most people should to console their friends when something like this happens. I guess I'll just let things play by ear and see what happens.
At least it was a peaceful passing. That's about all I've got to say on it. Please don't give me your sympathies, I'm not the one in need of them. I just needed to get that off my chest.
