    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'm not scared of death itself,

    in fact, it seems peaceful. The part that bothers me is how much people will miss me, I have a feeling I'm going to die before my mother. And just thinking about her standing at my funeral, crying. It hurts me, because I don't want people to cry when I'm gone, I don't want...

    I'm considering dying.

    After all, I don't have any attachement to life and I feel the need to escape my body so badly.

    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.

    What if I could just stop breathing in my sleep?

    I don't think anyone would care. I don't bother opening up to anyone anymore.. I'm so numb all the time. I'm just alive but I'm not living. No one cares. No one ever will. for a long time I've been thinking of going away but it sucks not being sure as to whether I should go or...

    I literally was thinking about offing myself

    while I was shopping with my parents and grandmother but then I was like no there is still so much I haven't gotten to do yet and the thought faded away.

    I had been dying for years from a blood

    disorder. I used to dream about meeting the actual grim reaper. It seemed nice. Still does. Life is built up by *** holes to be this great and awesome thing. It's not. It's filled with ****** people, strife, chaos, sadness, and other horrors. I welcome it. With open arms.

    "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...

    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 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.

    Death is nothing at all.

    I have only slipped away to the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, That, we still are. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow...

    I have been tormented by the feeling

    that i could die any second now. And it wont go away. When i try to fall asleep, i feel that someone is outside my door. I have never felt this bad about death. It has gotten worse over the past few months because i now have a really stable relationship with most people in my...

    I remember the first time I read Neil

    Gaiman’s Sandman volumes and encountered the girl known as Death. I remember thinking how fitting it seemed that Death was a woman. Because I’d often thought that Death was a “*****”. Mostly because of the number she seems to do on people. I have a big problem with the...

    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?".

    Death Is Not Virtual

    So we have seen many deaths through movies video games, but who actually saw a real one? It is really when you start thinking about death. I also wonder, why people come to watch the execution in Iran, where extra judicial execution happens. (im not saying this for really quilty...

    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.

    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 have met someone and I really like him

    and think I could have a really good future with him. The thing is, how do I tell him that I want to die, that its always in the back of my head and that if things go bad I might go ahead and just die. What's worse is that he has children that I would eventually be a mother...

    Both my parents passed away.

    My father when I was two years old. My mother a couple months ago. I do not feel strength or positivity coming out of the idea of them living in heaven. The idea of them, disconnected from me, waiting till I die too. What a grim perspective. There is no suffering in not...

    Deep in the abyss of light slumber,

    we sway with half-closed eyelids. Smiling, the gods of dreams and fantasy elegantly impart death, while the chains of karma, which dictates time and space, are becoming tangled. It's a fantasy program bestowed by the gods. We shall become one. We shall evade death. We'll...

    I think everyone's thought about suicide

    once in their lifetime. Everyone reaches that low point where they feel they can't get back up and they're stuck. You don't just wake up one day and say "Hey, I think I'm going to hang myself this afternoon." It's something you've been considering for a good minute. I feel like...

    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...

    Contemplating death is i think one of the most

    rewarding things you can do. Everyone you ever see will die soon. Try to imaging what it will be like to go to sleep and never wake up. Thinking about that is kind of like putting manuer in your garden, it seems like it stinks but it can really help you blossom

    We work so hard, race too fast

    and always grant tomorrow as possibility for more work or more life, its like we made a contract with god that our lives would last long as we grant our dreams not knowing that by any day all this work can be a swept of ashes, when we are gone. Would we ask for more hour to work...

    The only thing that kills me to think about,

    is people missing me. My biggest fear, is having people cry when I'm gone, it hurts me. In a way, I hope people don't miss me that much, I hate seeing people cry, and knowing that my close friends, and people I know cry, idk.. It's weird.. I just hate it.

    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...
