BOOK REVIEW : If I stay & Where she went

I may have started wrong by reading Where she went first, but I still did read the first one. :))

”If you stay, I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll quit the band, go with you to New York. But if you need me to go away, I’ll do that too. I was talking to Liz and she said maybe coming back to your old life would just be too painful, that maybe, it’d be easier for you to erase us. And that would suck, but I’d do it. I can lose you like that if I don’t lose you today. I’ll let you go. If you stay”.

”Stay. There’s no word for what happened to you. There’s no good side of it. But there is something to live for. And I’m not talking about me. It’s just.. I don’t know. Maybe I’m talking shit. I know I’m in shock. I know I haven’t digested what happened to your parents, to Teddy.. ”

I don’t think I can ever fully recover everything that happened to Mia. And I would never choose my life over theirs. I believe there’s no question in that, I wouldn’t choose to stay. 

But the story made me think if there’s really a moment, a chance or a possibility that our souls travel outside of our body? or does it even depend on us whether we stay in our earthly bodies or be summoned back to our Father? 

I’ve always thought about the eulogies that would be spoken in my funeral. Would I even like the things they’ll say? or would a lot of people even pay a visit at my funeral?
