    Default The end of a life

    Lately ive been thinking about how people die, when they die and what exactly does it feel like to die and to be honest it has me absolutely petrified.
    I cant stop thinking about how one day ill be alive and then the next I might not be.
    It has me thinking about what happens after you die? Like what exactly does dying feel like? I think its more the fact that im going to sleep and im never waking up and want to know if there really is life after death or do we just fade away into nothing after being something for so many years? I know that everything comes to an end eventually but in all honesty I just dont ever want to die. Maybe its the fear of the unknown? I dont know.. Im so damn scared

    I don't fear what happens after we die (I don't think anything happens, there's just nothing IMO) but I absolutely fear how I may die. I'm petrified of a painful death. It passes my mind often and I hate it. I'd rather not live in fear of dying, I want to just enjoy life for how it is now. I'd be more than happy to pass away quietly in my sleep. But to die in an accident terrifies me!

    hi, I don't worry about death. I don't think I ever have. I don't want a long lingering illness sort of end, I would rather it was quick and peaceful. I have my faith, so I believe there is an afterlife, and I believe I will be with my Lord when my time comes. I believe I will be reunited with my mum, dad, grandma, and all the important people in my life who have already passed. I choose to believe this, and I believe anyone can also choose to believe. marie.

    I constantly have this sort of thinking and its horrible. Though I try to take solace in the fact that I have amazing children to carry on when I am gone and I won't know what I am missing anyway.

    Its terrible, but the only way I can get past it is to just go on with the flow. OR find a vampire and have him turn me

    I love doing ancestry for this reason. It brings me hope that maybe I won't be forgotten and lost in the generations to come.

    If it helps at all, apparently one of the last things Steve jobs said before he passed was "oh wow, oh wow". So I like to think he saw something beautiful

    I have also read an article about a report that interviewed people who had died and then come back- eg had a heart attack, were "dead" and then doctors bought them back and they all claimed "the other side" was beautiful and they almost didn't want to come back to earth, and that they saw loved ones who had already passed.

    Keeping that in mind, I don't fear death. I do, however, fear the act of dying. Like others have mentioned, I don't want a painful death. I would ideally like to go peacefully in my sleep, smiling. So

    Im the same I think of it often and really struggle to think that one day I wont be here and maybe this is it.

    I believe in God and I believe in the afterlife but I am not as devout as others and wonder if this will mean im unworthy.

    I do wonder about psychics and all. Not like fortune tellers but those that claim to speak to the afterlife. Can they all really be fake?

    I recently lost a friend and her baby in a tragic accident and it has all been in the front of my mind as well as I havent really known anyone my age to pass on.

    I think most people are troubled by this at least every now and then. I worry the end will be horrible or painful occasionally but mostly I try not to think of it. Having said that, i do believe our soul or essence continues on. A different level of consciousness. I was told by a psychic that this is my 3rd time here on this earth and as crazy as it sounds, I believe that. I have always felt out of a different time and confused by this crazy world. I've always felt older then my years. It's hard to describe. I also believe my son is an old soul. I can see it in his eyes. I think we mostly just fear the moment and the unknown destiny of it. It's scary to think that we spend all these years gathering memories and experiences and then in an instant it's all finished.
