will probably ever know. And she was sh*tting herself TERRIFIED to die! In fact, I think her anxiety over being "true" enough to her Catholic faith took weeks off her life and made a sad but inevitable situation agonizing to her. The conversation she had with the priest who came...
"Dying is so horrible and depressing. I don't want to miss out on everything that goes on when I'm gone." That fear should logically be eliminated because of the fact that you won't be alive to feel depressed once you're dead.
or what happens after I die. It's not scary to me. I know there is a God and there is a Heaven. I also live by the Harry Potter " to the well-organized minds, death is but the next greatest adventure"
BUT what I am scared of is dying before I've done everything I've wanted to...
It's kinda funny that when people speak of spirituality, life, death etc. They sometimes take on a God-like voice "i am thee blessed one for whose purpose is just and righteous. The truth i speak is without fault".
I don't fear death because it's silly to...
because I have left my soul with someone else here on earth that I can not be with and may never see again. I gave him my everything and all. He has my soul and I have faith that because he has it, I will see him again in the next life and that that world we meet in will be a...
i think its living i fear.
so i sit back and wait.
i wait and i watch.
i ponder and reflect.
i think deeply and formulate.
i dream and i hope.
i imagine a better life.
i escape in a dream.
and once again i avoid living and making change.
i don't fear death. billions have...
When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can that I ever frowned
And remember only the smiles
Forget unkind words I have spoken
Remember some good I have done
Forget that I was depressed
And imagine that I had lots of fun...
"Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Take some of my dads pain meds. I got decently high off them today. But I'm gonna do It. Tomorrow. I'm excited. For it to stop. Maybe I'm being selfish. But I don't think of it that way I think of it as being thoughtful. Think of how many people I could hurt if I stayed.
but I was temporarily dead when I drowned as a small child. After I stopped struggling and got to the dark place with smeary colors whizzing past, hearing music like nothing I had experienced before (similar to some newage music, but not quite), I felt very calm and secure. I...
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...
after my death.
Who would care.
Who would be at my funeral.
Would they be able to afford a casket or a funeral?
I feel like what would mostly be said about it, is what a shame it was because she was a pretty girl.
It seems in this world that's all ill ever be.
Just a face...
I'm not sure when I first got here. All I know is that I did. There have been a few times in my life when I welcomed death. It seemed to be the easier, softer way. Years ago, I prayed to a God that I wasn't sure I believed in to take me when I went to sleep. Waking up was a...
what is the point of continuing to live if there is nothing in this place that has any meaning?
all that seems to happen is people pile more hurt and pain on you looking for your breaking point. but you try to get out and there is no way with out even more pain and misery.
When I was younger, everyone said that I had a death-wish. That was not true. I just thought that I was bulletproof. Now that I am older I know how vulnerable that I am. I knew when I was having my first stroke what was happening. I remember thinking "Lord, if you want me-take me...
This bit of rhyme from childhood is true,
But I've changed the words just for you.
"If I should die before I wake",
Please don't cry, be strong for my sake.
I'm far from here, no more pain to bear,
I'm wearing moonbeams and stars in my hair.
Dancing and laughing...
scares me in itself. I've had several near death experiences in vehicles on top of being in an abusive relationship where I finally got the nerve to fight back, and I held a knife to his throat daring him to hit me again. I've had guns pulled on me three times for stupid reasons...
It is inevitable and at my age I spend a lot of time going to funerals and supporting the bereaved.As for what happens after death, I have no idea, but like to that that we all get absorbed back into the Deity from which we came.
We will meet on this road
nothing gained ................truth be told
But i am coming and i am nothing
and you will set me free
Time will give us nothing
people like me and you
you can see the drops of rain
and you now we are nothing
but soon we will be...
Answered a question on EP about what kind of funeral I would like to have and well I just felt I needed to write this.
Now I have always lived my life with a grin and a smirk. I am always trying to find a way to make others laugh or smile along with me, it is just my nature...
morning. And honestly, this is quite the story out of my comfort zone to share.
It's true that I don't fear death. Cause the way I see it, it would be a relief. But that doesn't mean I long for it either.
What I do fear, is which memories I will leave.
I made it my purpose to...
Death is just another phase,
That humans must endure.
So don't fear death, give it your praise,
For death, there is no cure.
Just think about the seed that falls,
Cold and dying to the ground.
But something mysterious to it calls,
And the circle of life, comes back around.
When I was ten, I was at my friend's house. We were in his garage. And he had a handgun on a misplaced bed stand.
And we were goofing off. It was me, Ryan, and Cody.
It is foggy. Ryan knocked the gun off the stand, and it went off. And it shot him right in the head.
I believe in no god, so i have no fear of being cast into the depths of hell or being punished for my unforgiven sins. Life is a game to me, some play to win, some play for the fun and some want to quit. If i only live to die, why not go out with a bang
and I do not fear it, because I believe there is nothing on the other side of death to fear. I hope to be spared as much pain as possible on the approach path. I was perfectly content before I was born, and I think of death as the same state. What I am grateful for is the gift...
She was born with a heart that feels like crystal that has been shattered beyond repair
It feels like there are waves of thunder always waiting to rock her too her knees
Tears forever falling ,burning her cheeks like acid rain eroding something that was once a living thing
I believe in Heaven. I don't want to die. My life is a gift and a miracle. But I'm not afraid to die. Well, no more than any other person. I have been close to death (knife pointed at me by my abusive older sister at 13 was the closest I've ever come, I think). It's only natural...
..I guess maybe I fear how I'll die; I of course prefer to die of natural causes or sickness rather than some violent death. I've worked with many seniors with dementia and other serious issues, and I've seen how much they suffer. I think that's part of the reason I don't fear it...
but on their own time. So if I die I will accept it cause its part of life. First I was scared but my uncle said " no one can live forever they have to die some day" to be honest it scared me even more but I soon learn to accept fate so if I die now or later or tomorrow I can't...
issues coping with grief.
I come from a family that did not really help me to understand and cope with grief, so even now at age 42 I'm struggling to cope with the emotions that come with loss and the pain associated with it.
I guess it kind of goes with the territory, having...
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...
