Isn't scary to think of death, the end of your life. Isn't unfair that after growing up you've learned from school, from life, from experiences from everybody around you then you'll get old and you'll think damn I'm old now and now my end is near. Sometimes dying and getting old are two scary place to be in this world. How should we feel about it?

no not scared of dying at all. I have children, dear friends and parents over the other side, and lets face it, dying will happen to all of us. So not afraid of dying at all. I am more frightened of suffering with dementia, totally losing my mind and my loved ones having to do everything for me. That is sad and anyone who had a relation with dementia has my true sympathy.

In my religion we believe in Heaven and Hell.. I know I am going to Heaven when I die so I have no worries.... Although I will be going to a better place, I feel sad for my family and friends I will leave behind on the sadness of me going.....Although there are alot of religions out there and whatever religion you are I do hope you will be going to a better place when you die.

Yes I am scared of dying especially when I know that I haven't accomplish lots of things in my lifetime. I still want to see my kids grow, get married and see my grandchildren grow and attain their goals in life. Life really is great no matter what the troubles and sorrows are.

I understand how you feel, like every parents they are concerned about life of their kids would be in the future...but we need to face the fact that we're all gonna die we just don't know when and how. So don't be scared or you'll end up to disappointment prove to everyone that you're a better person, make your life meaningful and significance.

Not every person actually feel scare to die, when I watched some movies I see how old people let their lives end and I believe that it's also happen in real life. They rather wants to die than experiencing the aging, helpless, hopeless moment. They think they're done there part, impart everything they have, and accomplish what they think their purpose in life.

Who don't, everyone of us afraid to die. I'm also afraid to die young because I want to enjoy life and I want to be with my family for a very long time but due to my illness sometimes I'm a bit worried to die very young.

I am not afraid of dying but I don't like getting older. I am realizing that there are things that I can't do and some that I have never done and never will. There are still other things that I don't do as well. It is sad when I realize that my friends are dying or their spouses or significant others. Even losing both of my parents was an eye opener that I was now the "older" generation. I know that my time will come and I can see myself getting the "signs" of getting older and I have dealt with some of them and tried to ignore others. I have watched my siblings battle with health issues that I don't have, the same as I have survived my own. But I know what the "end" will be one day, when my time has come, and I really am not afraid, I am more fearful of the journey to get there.

I think I'm definitely more afraid of losing my loved ones than dying myself. I have this fear that I've developed in the last six months or so where I feel like I'm wasting the time I have with the people I'm close to instead of making the most of it. I'm afraid that I'll suddenly lose them and then have regrets because I didn't spend much time with them. It is scary to think that from one day to the next my life could completely change or end.

I am not really afraid of dying in that I know where I will be going afterwards. I will be in a better place and get to see my father and brother again. But right now, I don't want to leave my children, and I don't want to leave them without a mother. So that is the fear I have with dying. Honestly, I am more afraid of suffering than dying.

Yes i'm so affraid of dying. After growing up and watching my family dye around me when i was younger every year it makes you wonder. then the fact my faily only lives to be 58 at the most really makes you sit and think. with me being 52 almost i really am going to push to change this in my life. I am so afrai of when i die that i will feel everything happening to me and no one will hear me saying anything. sounds stupid. but it's been a dream i've had all my life. so yes is the answer to this question

No, I'm not scare. Everyone will die. I just scare how I will die. I prefer die when I'm sleeping than I die when I'm falling from air plane. I just wonder, what happen next after we die...

Well, I think that's just part of life, we are born, we grow up, we get old and we die..that's see. So we should not be scare about it, It's better to ask ourselves what we are doing with our life, are we really living?

No, I'm really not afraid to die. I am really just afraid of too much 'pain' before I get there and I know that's wrong. I believe in God and heaven and very strong in my religion which is probably why I'm not scared. Of course I will feel bad leaving my kids and husband to go on without me because I know they will miss me. But If you have faith and a religion, then there is really no reason to be afraid.

it's scary when we think about it for a second. how will we die, when, where, etc. but how we should feel about it is that we must learn to accept it cause you've given a time to do good and fine things in your life. but that is a special case if life is just unfair and all. that's my opinion.

Who doesn't, anyway? i'm scared of dying particularly dying without accomplishing the things i wanted to do in my life.. i'm 24 and haven't earned college degree yet.. i blame my ailment for not doing the things i wanted to do in my life.. i wanted to travel, go to places i have never been before, etc.. sometimes, i feel worthless because i can't do things that other people can do.. i hope and pray God will give the healing i've been wishing for so long..

Yes, I'm scared of dying. I'm scared with the thought of me dying, me suffering from too much pain... I'm scared to die young.. I want to enjoy life... have fun with all the people I love... I want to have my own family, have kids & see them grow up.. :) I maybe scared now... but I guess, eventually, I'll be able to accept the fact & be prepared that we will all die and be with our creator. :)
