Our Self-Written Obituaries – Priyanka Elangbam, Imphal
The 219th death.
[Text and photo sent by Priyanka Elangbam]
Priyanka Elangbam died last night with her earphones entangled loosely around her neck. It didn’t strangle her. She was listening to some positive affirmation ASMR videos on YouTube, to help her with her “self pity” issues which had been working up lately. Some will say she died peacefully. Some will say she cried a bit before the final breathe.
She lost a lot of people recently, close friends and family. She thought it was because she suffocated people who she loved. But that might not have been the case, it was just her over-thinking nature accessing the whole situation.
But she improved a lot lately, all because she started loving herself more. One step at a time, she used to murmur everytime she felt good.
Also, she wanted her best friends to work on the organ donation thing she signed up for. The legal cards hadn’t arrived yet when she left.
Lastly, she wanted no one to cry. The things she hated the most were sympathy and accepting compliments. So she would think they were crying because they felt bad for her leaving too early, or because they missed her at her final moment.
