Is preplanning something you’ve thought about? Perhaps you’ve recently gone to someone’s funeral or cremation and have started to think about your own mortality. Or maybe you’ve planned a loved one’s final services and have wound up thinking that you’d like to spare your loved ones such a responsibility after you’ve passed away. Whatever your reasoning, preplanning makes sense. But many people drag their feet on doing this. There are at least 5 reasons why people postpone preplanning their Midwest City, OK direct cremation.
1. “My Family will Do it After I’m Gone”
One reason some people don’t preplan is that they assume that their loved ones will do it for them. It’s the norm for families to come together and plan final services for their deceased loved ones. But why not preplan so that your family members don’t have to plan at a time when they’ll be grieving and in shock? It’ll be so much easier for you to contact a cremation services provider to make plans on your own.
2. “What’s the Rush? There’s Plenty of Time to do it Later”
Procrastination is something that many people resort to. So it can be easy to fall into the mindset that says there’ll be plenty of time in the future to preplan. But who really knows how much time anyone has left? Since you can never really be certain, it’s best to preplan while you’re still able.
3. “I’m Not Comfortable Talking About Death”
It can feel daunting, at least initially, to for people to face their own mortality. Perhaps you have a hard time doing so. But you’ll find that it can actually be liberating to open up and make arrangements that will ensure your wishes are respected and that will spare your loved ones the responsibility of planning your final services.
4. “Why Would Anyone Want to Go to a Crematory?”
Most people who go to crematories only do so because they have to be there. And it makes sense, really, since there really is no reason for anyone to go to a death care services provider unless they need to for some valid reason. One thing you’ll need to do is rid your head of myths surrounding these types of service providers. When you find a reputable crematory, you’ll have a service provider that will work with you to preplan final services. There’ll be nothing to fear.
5. “My Family Will Object”
Is it possible that you’re concerned about what your loved ones might say about your choice of body disposition? While cremation is now as common as burial, that doesn’t mean everyone is on board. Some families have always gone with traditional funeral services followed by burials. Remember that you can choose the body disposition you want. When your family understands that they won’t have to plan on your behalf and that it will cost less, they’ll likely come to understand why you did what you did.
