    "Oh my god! I am not getting out of this life

    alive! This is me, I'm an omnibus, I'm lonely, and the only, and I want to lose touch. The sweet liquor, of who you are, you left me with the most beautiful brain scars, at the end of our time. I no longer have the care free exuberance of youth, to cling to. This life has become...

    I'm Afraid Of Something Else

    What I fear is dying before I feel I'm ready. You see, when I'm feeling suicidal or I'm just gloomy, I don't care if I die that very moment. I'm not afraid. But the truth is, even when I'm happy or in an okay mode, I'm still not afraid of dying; I'm afraid of time. I'm afraid...

    I have been dead before

    and it was nice. I was kind of mad at the Dr for reviving me because it was so nice over there on the other side

    It's life that's so remarkably difficult.

    My own mortality seems infinitely easier to negotiate. Death is only hard when it's happening to those you love.

    Death is but another phase of life,

    the next chapter of our consciousness, the next great adventure. Everything must come to an end, and when I meet mine, it will be with open arms, for I do not fear the inevitable. I love my life and wish it to continue onward for years to come, but one day I will end, like the...

    I can't be afraid anymore.

    I've reached the apex of my survival... So... This is where it ends... Alone, hurting... The physical pain I can deal with, but the mental and emotional pain... I'm not equipped to handle that. I always figured I'd die alone.. I wish I had children, the ones I hoped and prayed...

    I'm not afraid because personally I think death

    is a beautiful truth. I think personally that life is like a cage full of lies, you are trapped in a body and people are constantly telling you lies, but once you die you can spread your wings and break through the barrier that destroys your dreams of becoming what ever you want...

    of me getting better, that soon I'll be one of the stars in the sky. Today I realized that the fact that I'm going to die doesn't scare me, what scares me is not being remembered. I'm scared my family will never come to visit my grave, I'm scared that they won't remember me in...

    My husband died 5 years ago today.

    He comes to me mostly at night but not as vividly as he did in the first years since his death. He has sent messages subliminally.

    I am not afraid of death itself

    but of the pain I may feel when I die. What scares me even more than the pain is I don't know what comes after death. Heaven? Hell? Paradise? Nonexistence? Reincarnation? but as what? a human? animal? plant?

    I'm not afraid of the end, I'm afraid that no one cares. My best friend is more concerned about her boobs getting bigger than my heart failing. I'm trying to be positive about the whole thing. I know she's a newlywed but even if she wasn't, I don't think she'd care. Sorry for...

    As was said, the goal of life is deTh.

    It happens to all of us at some point and so why be afraid of it! Just enjoy your time here as much as possible and don't put off to tomorrow what you could do today, as tomorrow never comes.

    Instead I Am Afraid of Life Itself...

    It is just how I am now. I am always afraid to live another tomorrow, I always feel intimidated, depressed, stressed, sadden inside me. Not even how hard I try to smile or be happy, the feeling always comes back.
