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.


I agree it's not death that's scary, it's what precedes it that is the problem

I personally fear suffering, much more than death itself. I know I'm going to die eventually, and that's easy enough to come to terms with. Between my various health issues, I'm surprised I've managed to live this long. What I don't want is an extend time of suffering beforehand.

Me personally, i fear the fact that i will have a lot of regrets when it happens, and who knows what's going to happen afterwards. If you have lived life to it's fullest and you are satisfied with no regrets, I think that you wouldn't fear it.

Maybe instead of fearing death just live it up now until then.......the mystery follows and you know that life is slowly leaving you, you will look back and be happy about what you did.....and maybe you'll reincarnate, see heaven, or be reborn in another planet. i dont know its the maybes that will probably excite you the most...and i look towards the good maybes.

I'm only really afraid of a painful death, be it emotional or physical. I don't want my last memory made of my life to be one of suffering. Other than that, I'm not scared. My beliefs tell me I'll be in a good place when I go, so I'm not going to worry.

For one thing, you should not fear it...
Death is the only true peace there is, no more bills, rent, worries...
You just go back to what you were before your birth, can you remember what that was like?
Probably very peaceful.

I feel nervous about it. But fear it? Not really. Death is a natural part of life. When it happens, it happens. We can try and keep it from happening at that current moment, but make no mistake we all die eventually.

If someone has similar constraints as me, then they should be allowed to die. The fact that this will never be an ideal world is reason enough for wanting to die. To lie to myself and say that I am able to control my own destiny would just make my life more difficult. I do not have the power to change the most important aspects of my life. There is no point in trying to change the world because I cannot do it alone.


Get over yourself. Unless you have a severe physical infirmity, crippling illness, etc. then your constraints are not much worse than those of anyone else. Why the hell do you expect some ideal world that nobody will ever have, at any point in history? So by your logic, nobody should have a reason to keep living, and most keep getting along just fine. I've been legally blind since birth, I have severe health issues, and yet...I still find I have the passion to keep persevering. I'm not lying to myself, but you certainly are...you tell yourself a lie long enough, and that lie becomes the truth.

So it's going to make your life more difficult? So be it. Help remake the world around you with your own two hands, or get out of the way so others can. The only real limitation you have to fight is yourself. It's not you versus the world, it's you versus yourself. THAT is the fight you need to fight, and win, if you want even a passing shot at improving the world around you. Until you do that, then yes, you have lost. And if you don't even want to bother attempting to conquer your self imposed limitations, you are far beyond the help of others.


I have TMS, thank you very much.

I guess you are arguing that I should exist just to serve others, which is fine, I don't really disagree with that point and it is the only reason I can think of as to why I was ever born, but I believe that I should not be living right now when the resources I am currently consuming could go towards a more deserving person.

I'm not scared of death. But it's weird to think that life goes on without you. Kinda creepy. lol

I'm not really scared of it yet because it feels so far away, but I don't want to miss out on all the future stuff. I'd rather live for ever.

Try and imagine a void, a space where this is no thinking and no activity. It is beyond human comprehension. Death is a void, and it is the not the pain of dying that most are afraid of, but the thought of nothingness.

Im afraid of death because i fear i wont have accomplished anything in my life, i fear the unknown, and i also fear that ill die and nobody will miss me or be there, itll just be a death of a person nobody cared about.

Thats why im afraid of death.
