Childhood methods of coping with fear of death that can carry through to adulthood: I Am Special, and Supernatural Rescuer

Screenshots from Existential Psychotherapy by Irvin Yalom:

Capital G

I'm sick of hearing about the haves and the have nots
Have some personal accountability
The biggest problem with the way that we've been doing things is
The more we let you have, the less that I'll be keeping for me

Don't give a shit about the temperature in
Guatemala
Don't really see what all the fuss is about
I'm not going to worry about no future generations
I'm sure somebody's going to figure it out

Don't try to tell me how some power can corrupt a person
You haven't had enough to know what it's like
You're only angry because you wish you were in my position
Now nod your head because you know that I'm right



[Lyrics from the song Capital G by Nine Inch Nails]

Quote Post: Dame Deborah James

Dame Deborah James talking about when she moved into end-of-life hospice care at home:
 
"I am not brave - I am not dignified going towards my death - I am simply a scared girl who is doing something she has no choice in but I know I am grateful for the life that I have had."
 
— Dame Deborah James 1982-2022

"I'm gonna die
I don't know why
Never killed nothing
Never hurt no one"

— Lyrics from Killer Clown by Superette
