Lessons from the Kobe Bryant Tragedy | Ep. 156

When it comes to death there is one thing I know for sure: it’s inevitable.

One way or another, death is often a profound experience. And when it comes to the death of celebrities, the after effect of it can sometimes be surprising.

In today’s episode, Karen Kenney and I come together to talk about the recent passing of Kobe Bryant and what it means for each of us. There are lessons here for all of us.

When someone we feel like we know (but don’t actually know) dies, it can stir up a lot of deep, personal feelings. We explore the complexity of those feelings and how to channel it into doing good in the world.

    Thanks for bringing this up. I was wondering why it affected me. When I first heard the news I was in a meeting and almost simultaneously the person speaking, who I was sitting next to, both of us gasped”Oh my God, Kobe just died “(we were the only two facing the tv in the lobby. Now my first thought was for Vanessa and his girls. And in listening to this I realized that it triggered my own loss at age nine of my dad & grandfather. The former through divorce, the latter to death. Which caused us to move away meaning that I also lost my friends. And the fact that I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye. So Vanessa & her daughter did not have a chance to say goodbye or even deal with the news in private but saw/heard it broadcast on TV like the rest of us because TMZ was obsessed with getting the scoop!

  2. Dr. Georgie says:

    When it comes to death, the younger they are the more violent the death, the more traumatic the event is to the psyche. The greater the “love”, the greater the feeling of “loss”.
    When it comes to Kobe Bryant, just remember his name, never been a fan of basketball. I opinion is that the man HAD A GREAT LIFE , just not the long old age life that people expected. And I’ve come to view death more logically after suffering for 63 years over my baby sister “violent” death. Been a very long healing journey to be able to ‘CELEBRATE’ their life instead of their death. That does not mean one does not mourn.
