I'm not afraid at all :]
But I hate pain. I can barely stand a stomach ache. So I will die painless.

Getting hit by a speeding train is painless. That is, if you die as it hits you. You may feel mind-splintering pain for a split-second or a second or two from the impact but it'll be instantaneous. It doesn't even have to be a train, maybe a horse fell on you, or you got tossed into a rotating fan blade. Does that help?

Better wording? Are you serious? I find my own wording pretty fitting, but fair enough, it may be too harsh for sensitive people to witness.

That's great. Glad you agree.

Well your wording is pretty fitting, but some people are sensitive like you said. So I though falsehood meaning untrue or a lie fit better for those more sensitive jelly beans out there. Invertebrates.

Well yes I know what falsehood means, no need to explain that... Invertebrates, you could call people that I guess.

Don't think I'm afraid of death per se. I'm afraid of missing out on all the cool shit I won't be able to do when I'm dead.

I would argue that it's natural to fear death as well. Simply ignoring it and not thinking about it is easy enough. But when you specifically concentrate on death, I think everyone fears it at some point, even if they don't consciously accept the fear.


I was born with a heart murmur, drowned when I was baby, thrown off a balcony at school trying to stop a fight, had to be cut out of a car (broken rib nearly pierced my heart), been held at gunpoint 4 times in my life, stabbed in a mugging, hit by a stray bullet one year attending Freedom Over Texas, and clipped by a drunk walking home from school, I'm definitely not bragging but I don't fear death. I just don't see the point in being scared that I'll be gone or what comes afterward. I haven't had the best life but it's one I can leave knowing it wasn't a total waste and I'm quite content with that.

I have schizophrenia which has altered my behavior and put my in some situations where death was nearly unavoidable. It taught me that there are a lot of people out there who would sooner have you killed than call for medical attention. Call it a service, or mercy kill if you will... I spent a good several hours in rainy streets trying to hide anywhere I could from people who wanted to harm me.

Nothing makes you rationalize life more than when you are on your belly crawling through bushes feet away from cars that are looking for you.

It served to make me have a new appreciation for life and I feel that although death is unavoidable, I want to live as long as I can because I think it is too valuable to let life go without a fight.

Oh and I have a heart murmur too, although the doctors say it's nothing for me to be concerned about. Apparently my heart just skips a beat around every 3 beats.

All I can say... Is that I'm afraid of all the consequences that follow after death.
-If you're a faithful believer You'd wonder what's hell and heaven and where you'll end up
-What you'll miss in life is a main part of it
-I would miss all of the daily routines that I go through
-I I would Miss the stress that you have to go through in life
-I would miss every aspect of life

Death is inevitable and unavoidable. Fearing the inevitable will only make us miserable. What we should do is prepare ourselves and others for it. I am not scared of passing away because I am saved and I know that I will go to heaven. I am not looking forward to suffering before death (if I go in a way that causes me to suffer) but in the end everything will be ok for me.


yes yes. THUMBS UP ^ ^b

Only thing that bothers me is if there is nothingness after death then what does that feel like?
Since there is nothing to compare it to.

No one knows what is going to happen. I'm incredibly scared of getting older. If I could have anything, it would be to live forever.

I know that in life there is only so much time to do certain things, and you won't ever be able to do everything.. That's a sad thought.
