Not wasting my time thinking about death, I have anime to watch right now.

Also, when I get old (around 60's), I am going to live it out and party till I die...
Tijuana, brothels, drugs, and lots of partying.

Can't say I'm afraid of death, not scared to die myself but scared that people who I give a damn about dies, that would be so soo painful.

very much so ^_^;
Because as most say, we don't know what's after.
Which is probably nothing.
And after creating so many memories and attachments, just being 'unplugged' from it all is scary to me.

Hm. I'm definitely not afraid of dieing; however, there is still a lot I haven't experienced so I would prefer to stay alive. There's no stopping death, it's going to happen eventually so I just work to live my life in a way that I don't die with regrets.
There's a quote from dead space 3 (and probably someone famous) that I think fits well here.
"It's not the dying that scares me. It's not making a difference before I do."

There's only one reason why I'm afraid of death:

I don't want to die too early and leave my children+wife+mother behind on their own. I at least want to take care of all of them until they settle down. I'm not afraid of dying in itself.. I'm just afraid of not being able to take care of the people I love.

I don't think I'm afraid of it. I just don't want to die before I finish accomplishing what I want to accomplish in life.

I am not afraid to die, because I am curious where we go afterwards .
BUT, I will live my life to the fullest until that day comes .

Guess people are afraid for someone close to end up dying. When i was very young i saw a whole family go into an accident on their way to an airport, i feel like they must have all died because the car was flippin and stuff.

"Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has come, we are not."

When you die, you have never really been in the first place because everything that was you is nothing. It's comparable in absolute-zero consciousness to a rock, a puddle of mud, or if you're a romantic, a snowflake. Truly, we are no more or less special in the kingdom of life than maggots, slugs, cockroaches, flies, or if you're a romantic, a butterfly. In other words, our life experiences and everything that we are and have done as humans, advancing in civilizations, technologies, and pleasures, mean absolutely nothing to the natural order.

I don't need to worry about it because it will happen. You will die, I will die, everyone you know will die. It's completely unavoidable, and when it happens we will probably not have realized that it was about to very soon. Most people go to bed with dreams of nice experiences and warm emotions, and after they fall asleep the mind simply vanishes forever, letting all of the life experiences, joys, pains, loves, all vanish in that very instant, eternally cast to oblivion. Usually the newly deceased do not think to reflect on their life while realizing it will be the last time they are able to, and if any reflection occurs at all, it is probably only reflection of events the day prior. To me that's oddly preferable to dying while awake and being able to say goodbye to the world. To many, the emotions felt when looking back after a long journey may terrify them, and if they are to then look forward while attached to all before, and also attached to the material worldliness in which we currently live, it may strike the mind with absolute terror in the wake of the forthcoming void.

I hope this is reassuring for some of you. It really frees my mind of the future and helps me enjoy the present. The next time you walk into your living room, actually look at everything in the room and realize that your are observing reality. Look up at the sky, get comfortable in bed, take a nice hot shower, talk with your parents, or enjoy an episode of anime, and then realize more than ever that the now is important to you because at one point all of your current experiences will not exist, no different than if they never had. Your family will not exist, and it's arguably no different than if they had never known or loved you in life to begin with. So enjoy every second, because

The water becomes calm again after the ripple.

I'm not really afraid the actual dying part, but what i am afraid of is having to leave the people i care about behind and the suffering it will cause them.
But don't get me wrong, dying before my time would suck.

Hard to say. It is probably a mortality thing. I mean, no one really knows what is out there beyond life.

Sure, there's theories and such about it (Heaven, reincarnation, etc) but no one's really been able to solidly prove any of it yet.

I mean, when you think about it humanity has a "heaven" but not animals?

I'm not really scared of dying. It's the thought of HOW I am going to die that scares me. I don't like pain.
