    Death... Try standing in between a mother bear

    and her cubs... Not my first look into the eyes of death, and certainly not the last...

    Jumped out of my dads arms

    and fell about 4 feet landing head first on concrete. Strangely I remember the whole thing even though I was younger than 2 years old. That day was the first time i almost died, and probably isn't the last.

    I don't fear death. I've been ready

    for it for awhile actually. I can't tell if it's just me being crazy or just finally being in a good state of mind for the first time in years.

    Do you ever catch yourself wishing

    for it? If a car randomly sped by and just ended it all. Not going to end my life myself but I wouldn't be upset if someone did it for me.

    It's not death that I fear

    but the fear of facing God with a hollow heart unable to say that I fully lived the life he blessed me with. I pray that doesn't happen and if by chance it does then I pray for forgiveness.

    Death is unavoidable.

    Whether you like it or not, you will die at some point in your life. I'm not afraid of death because I think it will just be a natural passing from one life to another, whether that be a life in rest and peace, or something more spiritual. Living forever would make me miserable...

    I am not scared to died.

    I have always been picked on and I have tired to kill my self. so I really don't care if I died tomorrow because I know that no one cares at me. so I am ready.

    Being There...

    I have seen human life end, up close and personal... there are so many things worse than death: mainly, an unlived life.

    But I fear lack of success

    before death. I also hope I die in an honorable way like saving a loved one..

    For myself. It is literally the only thing I'm

    guaranteed. I'm ok with it. Despite watching everybody I love die id love to live forever. But that's not an option so I'm ok with the reality of death. And honestly I feel more ok about my life knowing it has an end.. I don't know why, it adds some sort of false sense of relief...

    for as long as i have been alive, i have been afraid. afraid of almost every aspect of life. death does not scare me. death is inevitable. it will be, for me, the end of fear. peace at last. "death gotta be easy, cause life is hard. it'll leave you physically, mentally, and...

    I don't fear death anymore.

    When my time comes, I'll be okay with that because God knew the day before I was created. I know where my soul is going because Im covered by the Blood of Jesus. may all who read be blessed

    Being someone who's been suicidal,

    death does not scare me. The only reason I haven't attempted is because of my family, at least some of them. I am ready for what ever comes after death, whether it's heaven, reincarnation, or just emptiness.

    It's dying that terrifies me!

    !! Fast or slow? Young or old? Alone or surrounded by love? One last "I love you" or things left unsaid? Painful or gentle? With dignity or lingered too long? Sorrow or relief? Will I be missed? Will anyone tend to my grave? Did I fulfill the reason I was born? Did I help...

    I probably fear life more

    than I fear death. There are far worse things in life than there are in death. I’d like to think of death as a liberation of struggles, diseases, physical and mental pain, and obligations. It’s perhaps also an eradication of potential and possibilities, but all of these are...

    why people are scared of death. I don't see the need to be scared of it. I like to live by my life quote.

    The secret of life is to "die

    before you die" --- and find that there is no death.

    I'm not sure many people realize

    that there's a difference between wishing for death, and simply being unafraid. Persistence of suicidal thoughts doesn't equate to fearlessness. Many people who consider committing suicide, still find themselves afraid of the end and what it might be like, and generally never...

    Ever since my best friend of 7 years was killed

    I slowly over the course of time no longer feared dying. I'm not one who can bring myself to commit suicide, though when I was (too) young I certainly tried. If I have any fear related to death it's not knowing if it will be slow and painful to go or not. That reminds me, I need...

    At the end we die alone like we were first born,

    they will walk with your soulless body would give you back to the darkness of the grave and the decaying body that dissolve away, one day you will be just a memory in the mind of who you came accross.

    His head felt heavy as he cut across the land,

    when they died. As a nurse I have always tried to sit with a person if they were alone when death was near. My wife and I sat with my father as he passed away. I would often tell them that they were tired. That it was ok to rest. Always talking to them and reasuring them. In my...

    I dealt with my death early on through almost

    dying. Dying doesn't scare me anymore. It's been a huge help in my field of work and it has given me perspective for end of life. Death for me is a natural conclusion to life, an end of suffering and a chance for change to occur. Without death, everything would remain...
