    There's nothing to be scared of

    either way. 1. If you are religious, then you are supposedly going to a better place. So it's alright. 2. If you are not religious, you are going to nothingness, if religion was wrong, and since it's nothing, there's nothing to fear. 3. If you are religious, and it turns out...

    This is one reason people turn to religion,

    what happens afterwards? Personally I was never scared of death at all. It's so far in the future (hopefully) that I want to live in the "now". Why should we be so greedy as to want MORE life, for f**ks sake we are on one in a thousand trillion planets that can support our...

    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...

    Why fear the inevitable?

    I'd be fine with dying at any second. I don't see the fear in dying. We all are going to do it, might as well do what ever the heck you want.

    Saw It But Not Scared Now

    Ive actually 'touched' death. A person will experience death in different ways. Maybe it depends on beliefs? For me death was a very dark and tiring sensation that made me want to just sleep deeper than I ever knew I could on a cold night in the back of an overturned car, down a...

    I am not worried about this life like

    so many. If I grow old and I am filled with memories rather than dreams, I will not fear my mortality, because I am immortal! My body is just a vessel, a drakkar, for my spirit! It will go and reside with the Gods! I will sup at Odin's table, and talk of the things I have done...

    We humans as rational beings evolved

    Death Is But The Next Adventure

    Death to me is a wonder that makes me contemplate everything I believe in. No one in this world can say for sure what will happen when your time runs out, I guess that is what I find fascinating. The uncertainty of knowing that I wont know my fate and someday I will leave this...

    June, 2013 was the end of my life

    as I knew it. With one fell swoop, I was handed a cancer diagnosis and divorce papers, I was forced to try and find the middle ground of tying up my life’s loose ends and start a new life at the same time. My faith was tested, to say the least. Each day was filled with fear...

    It's such a significant part our existence

    and one of the few things we all without fail experience and none of us know when it will come. What lies beyond? No one knows. I think death just like life has a strange beauty to it

    In A Sense.

    I'm not afraid to death, because I figure that when we die, we're going to just go back to wherever we were before we were conceived. I'm just afraid of how I'm going to die.

    because everyone around me obsesses over death. It's never been scary to me...at all. It's just...I don't even really understand the fear. I mean I sort of "get" it. I understand where people are coming from but it just seems crazy to be worried about it... I don't even like...

    It's not death I'm afraid of,

    it's the act of dying. Adrenaline is something I can't stand, even in good situations, it's just such a basic function I wish I could turn off. I'd like to die in my sleep, something I don't see coming. If I'm going to die, I'd like to just die and that's the end of it

    I am not scared of death

    because i almost died when i was 3 or 4 because i didn't know what a "life saver" was so i swallowed it and we rushed to the hospital and if not for the hole in the middle of it i would have been dead if not for a hole so much for a "life saver"

    Why should I? When I am dead I am dead.

    Nothing else. I won't even realize that I am dead. Because my consciousness will be gone, my brain will be gone. My body will rot, and with it, my mind.

    Difference Between Being Not Being Afraid And Accepting..?

    I hear alot of my friends and family say they're "not afraid to die". Well my majority of my family say it because "I'll be closer to God". Others such my brother and several of my friends, say it because "its going to happen sooner or later". But honestly that isnt the point of...

    I don't know if this makes sense but while I'm not afraid of death, I'm afraid of dying. It's not the being dead part that bothers me. Having to cease life with goals unmet, people with whom I've never connected, loved ones left behind, etc - none of that disturbs me. In fact, I...
