This paper began with the life story of a head hospice nurse, explored how she who has been death-afraid and reluctant to contact with dying patients, step by step moved into the hospice care field, and made it her mission after her retirement to promote hospice care in communities and help terminal patients towards good death. Through the storytelling process, it is found that the nursing officer in the early stage of her nursing career, carried on her own consciousness of "passing on good nursing tradition" and "you are in the process of history", and then driven by her feeling that cannot bear the suffering of others, she began to turn around and face death which changed her original fear of death to an appreciation of life through death, and finally her work of helping terminal patients prepares for her own death. In the course of the study, the researcher reexamined her original intention of taking the hospice nursing caregiver as the theme of her thesis. The differences of attitude towards life between both: “living by nature” of the nursing caregiver and “life is but a hard work” of the researcher, let the researcher reformulate the research question and focused her research on the awareness of the problems related to her own life, thus developing the researcher's self-narrative. In the process of self-narrative, the researcher saw herself asking questions about life from adolescence: why I live? How do I live? The nature of these questions are hard to answer, so the researcher were always trapped, and had a deep feeling about the suffering of life. However, life must go on. In order to survive, the researcher constructs a self that she wants to be, separating the intellectual brain from the emotional heart. When the constructed ego is overturned, the researcher, in the midst of the shattering, realized that it is good to be alive and it is not really the point to exist or not , or to exist in any form. The point of life is to experience existence, and then appreciate it for what it is.
