    Death Is For Living

      I see the value of embracing death but I think it would be counter-productive to extending life. Death has certainly been overshadowed by the endless pats on backs we give ourselves for being such a great animal...but I really do believe (at this time in my life) that...

    My birthday was on March 26th.

    I didn't say anything to anyone about it . I just wanted to see if my husband or family said anything at all. No one did. I felt crushed and utterly upset. My husbands birthday was 1 month before mine and we talked about it the whole month. Almost every day until the day of his...

    I want to end my life,

    and I think about how life would continue without me. I cannot find myself to leave, my family, friends, and simple beauty of this earth, though.

    They say that "all good things come to those

    that wait," and "patience is a virtue." My patience is wearing thin; I'm getting pretty damned tired of waiting.

    Death Is Not Virtual

    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.."

    If I Died Today

    I've thought long and hard about death. Don't get me wrong, I'm not suicidal, but I've always wondered what it would be like if I died. I'm not afraid to die; dying is easy, you just slip away and you don't have to worry about anything. It's hardest for the people around you...

    Friday. The dead have all the knowledge.

    Life and Death

    I really don't think much about it, it's just that icygreen's story got me started. I feel that life and death are intimately connected, which can be seen clearly if we realize that we have to kill other living forms in order to continue living. Death is an inevitable component...

    It's a Part of Our Life

    To me thinking about death is as natural as thinking about life. It will happen someday to all of us, so I think it's silly to go on with your life without facing such an obvious fact. That is different from wishing to be dead or getting freaked out by the idea, though!

    Death seems like such a wonderful thing. A place where there is no more pain or injustice. All fades away in death; We are all in the same state when we die. That can never be said about life. Why do people prefer life to death then? Death is the achievement of all the noble...

    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.

    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?
