I Wonder About Death

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,856 People

    I'm an Atheist. There is no heaven?

    There is no Hell? What is there? Nothing. If you look at science, people just die. It makes sense that when you die, you are just dead. No thoughts. Or anything. I've always been scared that I would hate dying or being dead. But then I think "but you wouldn't have thoughts or...

    I used to really love God with all my heart

    like the bible says, was baptized in the spirit, but it was all for nothing. Now I wonder about death, whether God will smite me for disobeying him.

    If heaven wasn't real then death would be like

    sleeping, your not conscious when you sleep, you don't experience anything until the next morning

    You Didn't Know.

    You didn't know I was gone. You didn't have a way of knowing... No one even knew to tell you..... How could they when they only know so much about you. You didn't know I was gone, that you wouldn't get hold of me any time soon. That you'd never see or hear from me again... Not...

    I see my mom, age 96,

    becoming more and more senile. Her short term memory gone. Soon she will likely not even recognize me. Seeing that really makes me skeptical of an afterlife. What are we without our memories and accumulated knowledge? True, a single celled organism is technically alive but...

    I am really curious of what happens after.

    Like do we reincarnate? Or will it just end from there? I feel like our spirit or soul needs more than just one life experience to express what we truly are or to really learn from our lessons.

    I have been obsessed & terrified of death

    since I was little. I used to go to the cemetery a lot with my mom and/or grandma to put flowers on the graves of our family members. So I absolutely love cemeteries. I like looking at the old stones..some of them are awesome! Wondering about the people that were here before...

    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.

    How long will it take?

    What will it feel like when I finally leave? Will it be very painful? Am I going to know that I have died? What will be the cause of my death?! I just hope it's cold wherever I end up.

    I wonder what happens

    when you die, does "the other side" really exist? There is no proof so how am I going to believe people who say that it exist?

    It has always been on my mind.

    I just recently let go of religion,

    and I have been intensely curious about death. I hope my body goes to science or someone who needs it in another way. I don't want to rot in a coffin.

    I wounder what most people think of death,

    especially their own death. As I sit here and think of my own. If I go off life expectancy am almost to the tipping point of being closer to my death than my birth. Closer to the end than the distant beginning. But unlike other people I can't go off the basic idea of human...

    One of the mysteries on me.

    I am awfully scared at the thought that if we die, there will be nothing. All black, nothing more, nothing less just like how we were inside our mother's womb.

    There are some things in life

    that we should not be happy about. One of those things is, the death of your child's father. Four week ago, my daughter did not like the beating I gave her.... So she decided to take off and went to her father's home...... Now mind you that man caused me a lot of pain.... I...

    My husband's best man killed his wife

    and then killed himself. And the baffling thing is they were always so humble and stayed to themselves. So we have no idea of what happened!

    I'm not nervous about being dead.

    I'm more nervous about the process of dying. I've always hoped mine would be quick and painless but I know we can't all have that. Death is inevitable. I don't believe in heaven or hell or any religious things. I'm an agnostic atheist. I'm curious to know what death is like.

    So if i when I die and

    if there is no afterlife and I just turn off then all of this might just as well have never happened in the first place. If one knew that starting out I wonder what we'd do differently? If all the religions were really just mumbo jumbo (which some have to be) then what ?

    Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

    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...

    So I have this belief

    that life can exist without any physical form. I mean, our 3rd eye can take us to different dimensions that dont exist anywhere else but in our minds. In the dimensions you can have no body at all. So it makes me wonder, when we die is that just the death of our physical body...

    The hardest part of life,is facing our own death.We spend our time dreadingtaking our last breath.Why can’t we enjoy living,with this burden on our head?We make up comfort stories,that say we’re never dead.We’ll float in Heaven, reincarnate,or even burn in Hell...

    later, or be better than before. Downturns in roads I've never heard of before. It may be worst than the past,better than the future, or the same as the present.

    I am scared of death.

    Most nice I am up all night thinking about it, until pass out. I am always wondering what happens l, did I or am I living life or existing, etc. I wish I could a very strong belief in a high power... I want to believe. I don't want to died. I wish I was a vampire or lycan.

    I've always been considered a pretty morbid

    person. When I was in second grade and the teacher had us draw pictures of what we had as an interest I drew a bunch of different torture methods. Aside from that though, I tend to think of what my own death would be like (fast, slow, people remember or forget, etc.). I've made...

    have a silent heart, to have a motionless chest. I often wonder what it will be like when my muscles stiffen, and become still, never to move again. I wonder what it will be like to no longer fight, no longer struggle, no longer battle my own mind. Maybe when I die I will...
