honestly, i am. how won't i be? i just got married last january and i am 8 months pregnant. i want to live a family life - take care of my child and be a good wife. being afraid does not mean that i am not contented with my life. i still want to do alot of things. i am just human and death is the end of my humanity.

Yes. I'm afraid to die. Imagine yourself enclosed in a tight coffin. It is only your head that you can move left and right. Now, Imagine your coffin being lowered 6 feet underground and as you reach the bottom you can just hear soil pouring over your coffin. You scream but no one will hear you. You will be covered in absolute darkness for all eternity. Who would like that??? But seriously, I'm still young. I'm 19 and I want to do so many things. I still want to change the world!

Yes I understand what you are saying. I'm not afraid to die, but I would like to live atleast my kids come to an age where they can live on their own. Maybe till they get married. After that I will not have any worries. But now they need me and I cannot imagine how they are going to live without me. I don't think anyone can give the mother's love to them.

Yes, i agree with you. I think alot of us are afraid to die because we don't want our loved ones and those who love us feel our loss. We worry about what will happen to them without us. We don't want them to be alone and feel lonesome.

yes,i am afraid to die because i am not ready yet. i want to do my responsibilities to my mother as her daughter,i want to give her a good life, and i want to help my cousins and nephews and nieces to finish school. i want to have my own family and kids. and i want God to forgive me on something that I had done, and i want to prove my repentance. i want to die happily when i am old.

I am not afraid to die because everyone will die. but I am afraid that my beloved people die and leave me. I will be very sorrow.

Of course you want to be around for your baby and your husband. I know what you mean. I felt the same way when I was much younger and my children were really young as well. You have everything to live for now. Not that you didn't before but now there are people needing you more than ever. This is an understandable feeling as far as I am concerned.
