    This Is My Temporary Home

    Ever hear the song Temporary Home by Carrie Underwood? Well that's exactly how I feel. Earth is only my temporary home. My real home is up in Heaven with God. That's why I'm not afraid to die. I am not meant to be here forever. When it's my time I will be called up to Paradise...

    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...

    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.

    Why...

    Why should I be scared of dying? Why should I be scared of something that is inevitable? It will happen to everyone, eventually.

    Bones lose their strength,

    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...

    You Never Know

    I'm not afraid of dying. I'm afraid of living, waking up each morning and not knowing what's going to happen. You never know when or how you will die. I like to live in the moment and experience life. Try new things, some reasonably dangerous, if you live in a constant fear of...

    All things must come to an end at some point.

    I don't want this life and I never really have, Dying has never really seemed like a bad thing to me. I wasn't raised religious, I don't believe I'll go off to some magical place in the sky, or (much more likely for me), to the firey depths of the world to burn for all eternity...

    I'm Not Afraid

    Dying is the easy part. HOW you die, now thats the scary part. You can't pick how your going to die and you cant pick when you are going to die. So you have to enjoy life and everyday a great day, because it may be your last day. I won't lie, I'm not afraid to die. It's just how...

    It's inevitable. Why not just enjoy what you have and embrace it? Doesn't mean you have to sit there and wait for it to happen.. I've wanted to die. I've been in a low time, and I've wanted to just end it. I would never DO it, but I've hoped. Howeverr.. I have a daughter, and I...

    Am I the only one? Honesty,

    I would kill myself, but there's people that cares about me, I guess I don't want to be selfish. The only things I hate when I'm gonna die is, people becoming sad when I'm gone. I'm also scared of dying slowly, I would prefer shooting my own head instead of drowning. I guess the...

    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.

    I Am Not Afraid Of Dying.

    Yesterday, when I woke up to the stories about the terrible things happening in Japan, the words "I will die like that" escaped from my mouth. That was when I realized that idea of the end of the world --as we know it-- became real more than ever and I didn't feel scared, I didn...
