    I know that my fear of death comes from my

    disbelief in God. If I believed, death would be not a true end but rather, a transition from this life to the next. However, I could never convince myself of the whole "higher power" thing, and so when I think of death, I really feel that it will be a cessation of being; a true...

    I Blame It On School

    I haven't really been worried about dying, even when my grandmother passed a way last November. But, two days ago, the night before I was going to drive back to school after going out of town for a wedding, it hit me: I'm going to die. The thought of not being here, of my life...

    Why are we living to die.

    Life doesn't make sense. Sometimes I don't think I can be bothered doing this all anymore - the thought of dying or someone I need dying is sometimes too much.

    I think about it everyday and it sends me into panic. I cannot imagine being nothing, not existing. I continuously ask myself, what will happen? What will it be like? Will I just see black forever? I don't believe in any religion so don't believe in heaven or hell. I am...

    Lately i've been having a problem figuring out what i believe in. I like to think alot so the idea of one person single handed-ly creating this whole universe is hard to believe. How do we know God created us? Just because it's in the bible? How do we know the bible is not made...

    It's the 'unknown' rather

    than the dying. Does anyone ever get that scary feeling that something bad has happened. I read stories about people that are healthy and suddenly drop dead and postmortems can't find any plausible explanation. This makes me think **** this actually could happen to anyone. I am...

    Started When I Was Young...

    Being told there is no God, afterlife, no nothing when you die is hard to deal with when you are a kid. My father is a strong atheist and would tell it to me straight so there was no hope in my mind and remains no hope today. I used to think of death. The end. And feel sick in...

    probably the last experience post of the day.

    I'm scared of not knowing what happens after death. do we actually go to heaven? do we go to hell? do we just suffer in dark silence until whenever? or do we reincarnate and die and start over again? it's on my mind 24/7 and I'm terrified. I don't want to learn to love my future...

    I am terrified of dying.

    When I was younger I was very religious, and believed that if I was a good person I would go to heaven. Now that I'm older I'm starting to question my faith and the idea of a perfect afterlife. It scares me to the point of a panic attack when I think of dying and going nowhere...

    everyone dies, but it's the sadness people will feel when I'm gone, I cry everytime I think about it, what if it die while I'm young, I can't stand the thought of my parents standing around my dead body, crying, wishing they had done more, it's just saddening to realize that...
