Not everyone can face discussing the subject on dying and subsequent death. In fact, most people would rather not think about it! This can be true of family and friends.
You may find that those closest to you are affected by the thought of you working in a funeral environment. Sometimes people do distance themselves from people working the funeral service- have you discussed your aspirations with anyone as yet?
Employees in the funeral industry need a mature and responsible attitude, given the sensitive situations they deal with. They are generally working with clients who are emotionally vulnerable, and experiencing a very raw time in their lives.
Employees need to have the emotional stability and control to manage their own emotions, and in doing so take care of themselves.
