Are you afraid to die?

Postby annarborjack » Sun Nov 04, 2012 3:48 am

I used to be terrified of dying for a long time, but then I realized that death was inevitable and that is no stopping and it and it happens to everybody so it can't be that bad. I am a Christian and I do believe in Heaven and Hell, but I still question the existence of God. So basically I'm not afraid to die, although I am afraid of dying slowly and painfully. I hope I die quickly and painlessly, like old age, headshot, heard shot, falling, etc. Any way of dying that is quick and involves little to no pain is what I want. I'm not saying I want to get shot or fall, just that I want to die quickly and those sound like pretty quick deaths.

This is an interesting idea for a topic, actually...

I suppose I'm not too hugely afraid of actually dying, but I am a bit scared of the process. And I'm afraid of the consequences—by which I mean I'd be sad to know I'd leave a lot of people down here sad. And I'm worried about my internet friends. Because how in the world would they find out? :shock: They could very well just assume I stopped using the internet or something.

...Or maybe not, since that'll never happen. 8D But still! They wouldn't have any way of knowing for sure, and that scares me. At least outernet friends and relatives will be sure...

Maybe a little, but I've got plenty of time to live as I'm very young right now.

No, not of dying itself (as far as what will happen to me after I die), but I don't want to die a long, painful death. Like, I wouldn't want to spend the last days (or months or years) of my life going through some treatment that makes me feel miserable, and then die. It might sound strange, but I'd rather not know I have something, and then die suddenly without much suffering than to go through all kinds of treatments and going through all of the drama.

This, as long as my death is quick and painless I'm fine with it. What makes me wonder is what happens after you die. Does your life just completely end? Do you become a ghost for all eternity? Are you reincarnated as someone else with the memory of your previous life completely erased? Does heaven actually exist? These are questions we may never get a full answer to...

I personally believe in heaven.

I somewhat do as well, though I also believe in reincarnation, where you die and your soul is transferred to another being and all the memory of your previous life is erased. Does sort of make sense I guess. I'd rather have either of these happen than become a ghost with nothing to do for all eternity or just shut down and be reduced to a corpse rotting under the ground (or ashes if I choose to be cremated).

Not in death am I afraid for through Christ death has no power.

But i am afraid of the way i'll die for death is never a pleasant experience.

This was a huge problem with me in middle school. Being scared of death plus an anxiety disorder is not good!

However, now that I'm older I feel better about it. My biggest fear is dying in a painful way. Just pain, really.
