Are you afraid of death?
September 3, 2010 6:29am CST
Hi, Death is as real as birth. For one who is born, death is quite inevitable. We can't avoid death. All we can do is to pray so that we may die in peace. In Norse Mythology those who die in violence go to heaven. In ancient Hindu culture it is said that one who thinks about God while dying goes to heaven after death. There are conjectures and assumptions about what happens after death. But nothing is more certain than the death, not even the life itself. Are you afraid of death? Do you feel uncomfortable talking about death? Do the news of someone's death disturbs you even when you don't know him? Thanks in advance for your participation. God bless you.

im not scare to die, i had gone and fix things that i had mess up. there are something that i would like to change but its not on me. i would like to live long enough to see my daughter get married and do the father and daughter dance and see her kids. but if its my time to go then i am good with it. all my life it has been nothing but pain, pain in so many ways and even today i have pain of all kind. so i look at as i wont be in pain. and the others will miss me and move on. and i know my daughter will ask my b/f to give her away if i am not here and i couldnt ask for a better guy

honestly, no! but, sometimes, human alchemy says otherwise... especially the obligations and responsibilities that go with it... and enjoying the love of our family... those things make us afraid of leaving just as yet...

I always thought that I was not afraid to die until I was scheduled for major surgery. I was scared witless! I was not afraid of the process itself but I just did not want to leave my family. The experience was really an eye opener for me. With all my belief in God and knowing that He would take care of them made no difference to how I felt. I tried talking to myself and being very rational about it but the stark terror was still there. I just couldn't do anything about it. I had the surgery with no complications and thanked God that I came through ok but despite that I am not sure how I would feel if I had to have surgery again.

For a very long time I was not afraid of dying and I'm still not, it's unavoidable and inevitable. However, I'm no longer young and so my mortality is often foremost in my mind and I know I'm not yet ready to die. There are many things I have yet to do even though I'm limited in what I'm able to do...I have not finished having dreams.

Hi, I am not afraid of dying. But I am afraid of how my family will cope with it, because I know if my closest family passed away, it is hard to imagine living life without them. But it happens. And I hope I accomplish so many more of my goals before I die. But not, I am not afraid to die. Since teenage years, I have not been afraid as I have come close more than once.
