In my last article, I wrote about my month long trip to India where I got out of my comfort zone, started to receive closure with my dad’s death, and coped with my negative feelings. After this month long trip, I have had a lot of realizations about my dad, my life, and cancer in general.
- that my dad had two lives- one in India and one in America
- the extent of my dad’s pain and suffering for the two years he was sick
- his sacrifices for his family (my mom, my sister, and myself)
- his worries about my mom, my sister, and myself during his final days
Overall, I gained more insight in my dad’s life. The month I spent abroad and the realizations I made about my dad and my life have been life changing. Once again, I am so thankful for the opportunity that was given to me and I cannot wait for the next time to leave my comfort zone.
