Are you afraid of death?

Have you done everything you want to do with your life? If you would die tomorrow, would you be happy or sad? Happy for the life you took, or sad for things that you wanted to do and coudln't?My point of view is: all of the people that are afraid of death have lots of things to make and had lots of oportunities lost. If you took a life full of energy, happiness and fun, there's no why to be afraid of death because all that you could do to live a great life you did. You should be always prepared to fade beacause every day can be the last one. So life must be lived at all. Other people says that are afraid because don't know nothing about "the other side". Death is a natural cause and we all should be familiarized with this situation. But looks like only a few percentage of people are familirized with that, and most of people are not "ready" to dead yet. Why?

Even though I am not where I want to be in life I have come to realize that if I die tomorrow then it is just my time to go. Although I dont want it to happen, if is not my decision on when it is mytime to go. As a single mother I would hate to think of what would happen to my child if i were to leave this world early but deep down I know that my family would take very good care of her.

dying - When I know I am going to die soon, I will be sad and restless.
If I know I am going to die tomorrow or next month, I would be sad. I don't want to say good bye to my wife, my children, people I care very much. I don't want to leave my video games, I don't want to sleep in a small box underneath a grave. I don't know the world on the other side.

Good question. I'm not afrad of dying. I believe I did my best helping others and loving the people in my life. Hopefully that will be enough for God to take me to heaven. I'm ready to go anytime. However, there are still lots of things that I would like to do with my life. I would still like to marry the woman that I love and have children with her. So it's not that I want to die. I'm not depressed or anything like that. It's just that I live my life as best as I can and I believe that's enough to go to heaven, so why should I be afraid?

No I am not afraid to die. I'd be sad. But I know our greatest goals in this life arent to marry and have kids. They are to be as close to being like Christ as possible. We are all appointed to die someday. And that day will not come till then!

I totally agree with what you are saying. My appendix burst on me about five years ago. I am lucky to be alive today. I live life to its fullest. If I want to do something I do it cause never know if you will be here tomorrow. I have a sister in law that complains all of the time and she will wish someday she didn't. She needs to realize that you may not be here tomorrow so have fun today. I realize that I could of been gone that day so now life is so precious. I want to enjoy what time I have here. Sure I don't want to die but know it is only the natural thing and he knows when my time is.

Life is good yet I'm not afraid to die. In fact I am ready to die anytime. But,I fear for the people whom I will be leaving if I die. I had a great life, but the best is yet to come. And if I pass away later, maybe God has a different agenda for me. I think people who are not ready to die were not that strong and confident about the way they live their lives. Seize the day!

No I am not, I have been there and come back - my heart had stopped for a few minutes until I was revived. This happened after a major surgery for removal of a malignant tumor from the joint between the head of pancreas and the common bile duct. I had very slim chances of survival even before the surgery, took the only chance I had with surgery and now more than 4 years later life is normal again. sorry for the cut and paste, I didn't realize that I was commenting on someone else's comment.

Well, at this moment, yes. Because I know that I have not tried many things, and this is just the start of my life, I don't want it to end so fast. But I think that I will not afraid when I am old. Because I should tried all the things I would like to try, and I think that I will not regret. (Hopefully) What do others think?
