I Think About Death

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,755 People

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    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.

    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 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'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 .-.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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?

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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?".

    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.

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

    I often have a reoccurring thought of

    ...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...

    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...

    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...
