The thought of being gone

Recently, when watching some TV shows I have got very emotionally at the death parts, not just any death, but a death of a person who has a family, and more to the point, when they have a small child.

This obviously has something to do with having a little boy myself, being a parent is a very emotionally time, full of worry, from things like am I a good parent, to when they hurt themselves, to what would happen if I was gone.

It’s the last thing I hope would ever happen to my family, but it’s always in the back of my mind, what would happen if one of us was to not be around anymore? How would either of us cope? I try not to think of it too much as I know it will get me down, but I hope that we would be strong if it ever happened.
