Death and perspective was a life changing class for me. I learned how to manage feelings I had been holding in since I was ten and my father passed away. I realized that I didn't need to feel guilty for wanting to be happy or moving on. I also learned how to move past my boyfriend passing away from cancer two years before taking your class. I met other people who have loved ones who passed away, and I saw how strong they were, which made me believe I could get through it too. I learned that being vulnerable was a good thing, and opening up to people is necessary in life. I say I love you so much more, and don't take anything for granted, and I live for today. I learned that my actions can impact someone else in a significant way, positive or negative. I think about helping other people so much more than before. Most importantly, I learned to find strength and happiness from within. I can't thank you enough for everything I learned in this class. It was an honor to have been your student.
