    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 am not scared at the thought of dying.

    It's the sadness of all the things I wanted from life and the regrets of things I never got to experience. Some things are once in a lifetime and there is no rewind button or no making up for it. Also, since I am a loner with no friends, my funeral will be one with a few family...

    We all need to realize

    that death will come. We can't live forever. We know it, but it's hard to be aware of. It's also important that we do not fear it, because that would be pointless.

    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.

    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.

    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.
