I Wonder About Death

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 961 People

    I find death a funny concept.

    ...I don't get it. I know it sounds strange, but death has always boggled my mind. The closer I get, the stranger the concept. I guess I cannot imagine life without me.

    I'd Like to Believe In An Afterlife, But . . . .

    I absolutely love the idea of an afterlife.  It's not even so much the idea of meeting lost friends and family . . . . it' mostly the fact that, if there is an afterlife, you can be sure there is SOMETHING MORE than just the periodic table of elements and sex to life. ...

    I used to be scared of dying,

    just before I was 18 a few months before, I realized I was terrified of death. Because everything seemed so pointless at the time, yes I've had a few super good memories and there are things I will never regret and people I won't forget but over all, I haven't done anything very...

    It's A Constant Thought..

    I think death is our friend.

    There are several reason can support my opinion. The first reason is "we are not happy as human being who are leaving on this earth" The second reason is "the death itself is not scary, there are a lot of thing we misunderstood about death" The third reason is "if there is...

    I have often wondered about death.

    Is it truly the end or is there more after we die. When our hearts stop beating and the body dies, does the mind and conscience die with it?

    Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sun on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift...

    I always imagine me dying in weird way it's

    weird like I fantasy about it and romanticize about it. We see all the time in movies, when I listen to a well but electronic ambient sad song, I always think of fallen and landing on a spike.

    The whole concept of death intrigues

    and terrifies me. For years I have laid in bed unable to sleep, haunted by the lack of existence that awaits me. All that I have known, considered or even imagined will fade to black, to an eery nothingness. Everything and everyone that I have ever known, ever loved will cease...

    You can't escape it, everyone will experience death. Maybe that even makes it worse. You'll never know when and how, you only know it will happen. It's a difficult thing to accept that this occurrence will take place, with or without your permission. People always try to shut it...

    Death

    Sorry if this is morbid but in many ways death is of course something we must deal with. In many ways for me it is the end of what we call life and maybe we never know what is out and beyond. As a kid wondered about insects first. They live and die, right? Where do they go once...

    I think I was a weird kid. I always loved going to cemeteries, partly because I love history, but also because I have always been fixated on the question, " Where are they now?" I found my faith in God early & have been comforted by that, but there is so much unknown. When I was...

    as something scary and I don't blame them, but you can't run away from it because death will someday catch you. Just remember to appreciate the time you are given and don't waste it, just live the fullest.
