    I Don't Want You, Stay Away From Me

    I am so afraid of death. It's the only thing that scares me. It's horrible to think that one day I won't be here. and my things will remain here. I would be losing everything I fought for. Why God has created this kind system? Life is so beautiful, it's very scary to be still...

    Why Fear?

    I am an atheist and I do not believe in any kind of afterlife. However I could be wrong. I see it this way. There ether is, or is not any kind of consciousness after death. If there is not (as I think is the case) then being dead will be like being under general anesthetic. There...

    I know that my time will come, but I just hope it does not come soon. I am scared of death. But when my time comes then I will probably just accept it... Like do we really have a choice?

    What to Do When You Die

    I don't show any physical signs of being scared of death, and it's different from what I've seen described so far.  I'm not really too afraid of whether or not I'll go to heaven or hell, it's the actual act of dying that I'm afraid of.  I can see myself lying on a bed...

    I'm Scared of Death!

    I know that eventually we are all going to die one day. It's part of nature. My fear is how am I going to die? Will it be peaceful? Will it be violent? As an empath sensitive I always end up picturing myself how I'm going to die and am able to sometimes feel those experiences. It...

    I Am Not Afraid of Death...

    But I used to be. At one point of my life it was the only thing I could think about. I would lie in bed at night and think, I could die right now. Sometimes I still do. But then I realised that being scared of death was preventing me from living. It was making me scared of...

    What Scares Me About Dying...

    What scares me about me dying is not the way I die, nor the fact that I'm, well, dead. What scares me is how much grief I'm going to cause to people when I do die. I hate making others sad and dying is like the ultimate thing and you can't come back and apologise for it.

    My biggest fear in the world is death. Whenever I think about it, I'm instantly filled with dread. What happens after death? What happens before we're born? Think about it, if you've been living this whole time, you can kind of, feel it, I guess? But when you're dead, you just...
