I am really afraid to die because i'm not ready spiritually. I want to have my own family, still want to do good things for my self and for my family and others.I still wanted to reach my goals in life and to be successful. Are you afraid to die? What are the things you want to do while your still alive?

I believe people have a variety of reasons why they are afraid to die. I think your reasons are valid reasons to be afraid. I personally, am not afraid to die. I think a large part of it is because I believe people do not have a choice when it is their time to die, not accounting for self-destructive behavior. I think if people have made a concerted effort to live a good, productive and constuctive life, they have done all that they can. In addition, with my personal experiences and training, I have had to develope a mental attitude in which willing to die allowed me to be more effective and in turn helped me to actually be better capable to survive in certain situations.

I am not really afraid to die since all things have an end and i have acknowledge that part. As long as you are ready to face your maker then it is a joy to leave this life. Of course i still have a lot of things to do with my life but who are we to say no if it is our time. God knows the best times for us. As for the thing i want to do with my life? I still want to get married and have a family of my own.

Neither am I. I am afraid to die anytime. I also still want to experience all the good things in life before dying. And im not ready at all for so many things.

I dont know if i am afraid to die - i think i am more afraid of what will happen after i die.I am afraid of what my parents n friends would do without me. And yes i do feel i am too young to die. So rather than fear it would be disappointment that i would not be able to experience all the joys life has to offer.

I am not afraid to die, pursay, but I do want to be here for my kids, and experience a long, fulfilled life, but I love God, and want to be with him,therefore, I am not scared to die, but I am scared of when or how. So, my answer is both yes and no

I'm afraid of the pain and suffering that you have to go through to die, but I'm not afraid otherwise. There is really nothing you need to do spiritually except accept God and Jesus, if that's what you believe in. I am also worried about my family missing me. But, when God wants me to go, it's my time to go. And, I will see everyone in Heaven again, I hope.
