I Think About Death

    "When you die, the whole world suddenly loves

    you." There was a girl from my school who got cancer. She had tried to fight it for three years before her body gave up. She wasn't very popular, so i don't know if she had many real friends. But i noticed how fake people wrote about her on facebook. Even if they felt really...

    I think about dying almost every day of my life.

    It's usually about suicide. The problems I create for myself seem to pile heavier and heavier on my shoulders to the point I feel I can hardly move or function. I often think how unfair it is that we are born without being consulted first and now I'm stuck in my life. How...

    Life sucks, I wish I was never born.

    I look at death as the best escape from all problems and I look at suicide as like a giant middle finger to all the vile, disgusting, vomitrocious, physical pain, heartache and all the nightmares in life. What's the point?

    The only thing I fear about death is the thought

    that I won't be at peace when I go. There's nothing that scares me more than thinking I'll be filled with terror and fighting it until the bitter end.

    It's so weird to think about,

    and confusing as ****. After we expire, is it just darkness and quiet for the rest of eternity? Do our spirits move on, but remain here on earth? Or is there actually a heaven and hell? Know one really knows, there's no answer. It's so ****** up lol. So many questions, but no...

    There is life in death.

    I definitely believe that there is life in death. In a literal sense, a metaphorical sense, and obviously for some people a spiritual sense. When someone close to you dies you rethink your life. You face your own mortality. You try to find more meaning in your own life. In...

    I don't even know myself anymore,

    let alone any others. I'm living for the sake of it. Judgemental society that thinks people like us are just plain attention-seekers. But no, we're just trying to express ourself because we know in real life if we were to talk about suicidal thoughts, people will just say you...

    In the last month or so,

    I've been getting a strange feeling that I don't have much longer to live. I'm fourteen, so logically I could expect another 60 or 70 years, but I feel like I'm going to die sometime soon- in the next few months, sort of. Not like a premonition- I'm not pretending that God...

    A lot, now the very thought helps me sleep.

    When you think about death it's easier to forgive. For instance "I'm going to die one day, the ones whom hurt me will also die one day. Why hold on to a grudge?".

    I fantasize about jumping off the Golden Gate

    Bridge and many other bridges. I hate being alive and having to worry about trials and tribulations and human issues. I wish I was never born. I wish my mom had loved me a little bit or at least enough to abort me. I can't stand waking up in the morning having to face the facts...

    death is on my mind more then I care to admit.

    and lately the curiosity is getting to me. I don't want to kill myself but I don't wanna live anymore either.

    What would happen if i were to die tomorrow?

    How many people would come to my funeral? Would they miss me, or would i just fade into nothing? I veer towards the latter. I make little impact on others lives and feel i have nothing to offer the world. I have complied a suicide note- I wonder if i'll ever have to use it.

    Honestly, the thought of killing myself is one

    thing that curbs my panic attacks. It makes me feel calm and relieved, like the fight is finally over. By no means would I call myself suicidal. I know people love me, I know suicide is unacceptable, but it is somewhat like a fantasy with me. I would never kill myself...

    When I was 5, I just learn about death

    and I asked my mom if I'm going to die. Though I can't remember the answer, I remember myself crying to her and tell her I don't want to die. At the age of 11, I came so close to dying not once but twice in the same year. That event had greatly influence my way of thinking and...

    and met a guy who works with my bf. I could tell he was drunk and acting funny but I didn't think much of it. hours later I look out my hotel window and he's still in there looking pretty messed up. the jets had gone off and he hadn't bothered to turn them back on. I went down...

    I'm not afraid of death,

    I just think about it on a daily basis, like, "I wonder what it would be like if I were dead" It doesn't mean I want to kill myself I stopped thinking about that a long time ago .-.

    Someone told somebody not to commit suicide,

    don't do that to someone. The way I see it is if you stay because of someone else, you just grow to resent them because its as if they are forcing you to do something you really don't want to do and that is live. I am not miserable and my life is not horrible but I don't want to...

    Most of the time i'm fine.

    I guess I just have triggers that make me think about death.. I just wonder what its like. Is it going to be a relief for me? When will I die... Etc I just wonder. Lately I have been thinking about it on a daily basis. I have moments when I think "This is it.."

    the other day I had one of those existentialist

    moments where I became fully aware that I'd someday meet the end of my life. it frightened me at first, like always, but after that faded it became a reminder to live authentically and never waste a second. I am me. I'm the only me that the world has or ever will have.

    Not Only Do I Think About It....

    But I hope for it. I wish for it, and not amoung others. I know some people will say "I hope so and so dies" well for me, its "I hope I die" i've never wished death on another soul but mine. I think about death, and how peaceful I will be, and how I won't have to hurt anymore.

    Just three weeks ago I was thinking about

    suicide. And a few days ago my uncle died. My dad's younger brother. He was only 55, and he's left behind a wife and two kids. Well that's put things into perspective. We take life for granted so easily. I've stopped thinking about suicide. Can't say that I've been depressed...

    but I panic when I think about dying. Since it is inevitable, it is not a fear I can get over. Well, except for dying, of course. :P

    Not in a bad way or anything.

    Nothing serious enough to hurt others or myself. No. I've merely had the idea of Death in my head lately. I read a lot which means I often learn a lot about things I never would have thought about. I especially love reading about mythologies and old stories about how Death is...

    ...no big deal. Or is it? Really now, why do we make such a fuss about death? I won't go with the 'it's inevitable, why worry about it' argument, though that line of thinking does have its benefits. I was thinking more about why we feel uncomfortable about death in the first...

    I can't help but wonder what death is like.

    Sometimes I believe it's as peaceful as palm trees, other times I feel as if it's like someone is putting their hand over your mouth and nose while you struggle to breathe. I remember as a little kid I once had a bad dream then ran to my dad and said "why do we have to die? I...
