    I am not scared of death

    Death is not scary by any means. But the way you die is the scary part. I am ready to die

    A Great Adventure

    Death does not scare me. It's a part of life. It's sad, no doubt, but it's also full of joy. Death brings birth, it is "The Great Circle of Life". I know where I am gong when I die. I believe that there is a special place that God has prepared for me in heaven. I do not fear...

    Once But Never Again.

    I was suicidal, I did have a goal. I wanted to end that empty feeling, to feel like I was living. Emptiness caused me to be desperate, I felt so alone. Poison seemed good, eventually slashing came too. But never had I succeeded, which I am glad to say. For if I had gone, I wouldn...

    Or Am I?

    If you are in the bottom of a building, the rest of the building is on fire, and you can't get out, you wouldn't be scared? I asked myself this question and the thought was scary. Maybe it is the way of dying I'm scared of.

    Why Would I Be?

    There is no need to fear death. As long as I can remember, I haven't feared it. I embrace it. I respect it. Death is one of those things that is with us throughout our lives. It is one of the very few things that unites all living things.   Death is a kindly friend, and...

    Death? Some people ask "are you scared about getting old and dying?" My typical answer is "I'll tell you when I'm old". Why should we be scared of something that will happen? If you think in the present, and not the future, then life will be a lot easier. If you think about death...
