I'm scared of death. The thought of one day just not existing, not thinking or feeling or being me terrifies me.
But I couldnt deny my children the gift of having kids. Nor could I deny anyone else it.
I'd imagine that people wouldn't have anywhere near as much drive to do anything fulfilling because they're not a ticking time bomb.
No eternity for me, thank you.
No. The circle of life and all, y'know? Who am I to mess with that? On the other hand....
There are people in my life who I'd be devastated to lose, but at the back of my mind I've always thought I could handle losing anyone as long as it doesn't happen to me. I am THAT scared of it. So in that sense I'd probably agree to any trade to get out of my own demise!
Why my fear is so great I am not sure. My Mother seems to think that as you grow older you begin to accept the thought of your own mortality and that it's normal at my age (41) to be afraid and un-accepting of it. I don't know. She's been wrong about things before....
Nope. Without new generations there would be no advancement in sciences as there would be no new minds or perspectives.
As much as Death scares me, it's inevitable, it's all around us.
im not scared of dying. I believe in an everlasting soul. I believe we will be surrounded by our loved ones and welcomed into everlasting peace, and love. I have lost my father, my mother, my grandmother, and quite a few other relatives. actually I am going to a cousins funeral tomorrow. I believe in the circle of life, and it is also a circle of love. also , I believe it is open to anyone who chooses to believe. it is not some giant leap of faith, it is just one small step. hugs, marie.
