This is another part of my series about my dad’s cancer. You can find the first part here.
Knowing that you or someone you love will die because of cancer is horrible. You’re aware that your time together is limited.
One of the most important things during this time is to ask questions!
I wanted to know as much about my dad as I could, I wanted him to tell me stories about his life and why he did certain things.
Is there a thing you always wanted to know about your loved one? Then don’t be shy!
I’d love to have known if my dad had ever intended to get a tattoo. I never asked him. On the other hand, if he ever would have intended to get one, he would have had one.
I was also at first angry with myself for not asking him, how he thought about me getting a tattoo. But I know that he wouldn’t object to anything I do (if it’s not illegal or immoral), as long as I’m happy. He always supported me, no matter what I did and I miss this a lot.
Keep in mind, that if you don’t ask questions now, you’ll never get the chance to ask them again!
As long as they’re not weird or intimate I’m sure your loved doesn’t mind answering them – on the contrary! If you’re showing interest it will make them very happy.
I hope I could help you with this.
