To quote Robbie Williams:
"I'm not scared of dying, I just don't want to" :D

Yes, I can't think of it because it makes me feel terrible.

Hard to say because I never felt before. If I died, I hope it happens in a blink of an eye so I won't suffer so much.

Same here.

I would not want to suffer before I die. I'm more afraid of suffering than the dying.

No. Death is part of life :)

The very last part, which is what is frightening to most people.

Especially so seeing as there is no evidence that our consciousness lives on or is as transcendent as our culture represents it to be. I used to believe that we had an immortal soul but I've lost that faith, sadly for me.

If you don't believe that there is something after this life one probably should not be afraid.

If you do believe that there is something after this life and you have not lived your life here well, perhaps one should be very afraid. :devil:

On the other hand, if one has lived well...... :angel:

Not at all. Im afraid of living past 30. If I'll live past 30 I'd end either in jail or in looney bin (been there before btw). Im 24 right now, and I give myself 3 more years...

Oh, once I WAS close to die, at 2010/2011 New Years Eve...If not my douchebag brother, I'd be dead right now.

No, anyone who has ever had a NDE(like me) would have absolutely no fear of it. It`s just a transition to another state.

When, I really think about it, yes, I'm quite fearful of death. There's a lot more in this life that I want to experience. I want to live a full life. Maybe when I'm older I won't be so afraid...but I can't imagine feeling that way right now.

I can honestly say no.

Death happens, it's inevitable so why fear it.

Sometimes I feel like it would be better than living, given the world we inhabit at times.

Yeah I would rather die of natural causes and be able to know my time is coming to an end so I can celebrate my last year or two with those I love. I am a little scared of dying but I know that there will be plenty of people with me so thats a good thing. :shrug: :)

Of course there is a HUGE difference between being almost dead and dead.

Yes, terrified because I'm 21 and I still don't even feel like I've started living :tape:.

Not really. I used to however be really afraid about somehow being presumed dead and then being buried alive :tape:

If what the bible says is remotely close to how this thing works then I have a lifetime membership in hell :D

And OT, I actually think often about how I'll die, not really afraid though. I'd rather die when I'm 70 with a heart stroke than a slow death at 80+.

This is where I lay my hat. Not so much dying as the manner in which it happens. I would prefer peacefully in my sleep, no pain. Just close my eyes and then open them in that Great Beyond.

I actually would like to choose when I die. To say goodbye to everyone I love and to make my own testimony etc. :scratch: When I got hit by a car, no one actually knew if I was gonna survive or not as I was in blood and could have had a brain injury. Severe brain injuries can kill you in a blink of an eye.
Guess what? I was not even worried at all by the idea of dying, I was terrified for my relatives and my friends. I didn't want to leave them because I knew they would be devastated, especially my parents. And I just wanted to tell them how much I loved them once again... same about my friends, I've thought of every friend I truly hearted, even those I stopped talking to. (lol what an ass, I tried to talk to him again after that, he didn't believe me, and even wished I got more seriously injured. I hate him.)

Now, when I think of the death I am scared, but really when you are getting close to death or something, I guess you don't think of that. It's weird. I don't know how to explain. So yeah.

I'm afraid of the effect it would have on my loved ones, especially my kids. I hope I make it long enough that they're well into adulthood when I go.

And of course, I'm afraid of my loved ones dying before me.

Not the actual dying. But the process of dying, yes. Like getting old, getting sick. It's hard to think about.

IDK if I'm afraid of it. I don't want to but I'm young so I don't feel like I'm going to and my beleifs are set in stone at the minute.

I think the scariest part is the doubt of what happens next. I wouldn't feel that until I was older or found out I was terminally ill I don't think.

When you DO die, make sure it isn't a dumb way.

+1

In fact, I'm not scared of getting old let alone dying. We've been taught in the young age that, "When A Life Takes Birth, It Has To Die."

But I often wonder how would I look once I cross 70s, say my Skin/Teeth/Hair/Eyes etc. Until now I'm fortunate enough without any ailments be it health or mental (due to personal/financial etc). And I'm lucky enough to escape eye sight problem even after spending 2+ decades heavily working with Electronics and Computers.

My only wish is to die peacefully in bed without any (chronic) health problems. If it's destined then in presence of my future wife...

Everyone has to die and in Buddhism death is only temporary and based on causes made one can expect to come back in better or worse circumstances. So no, I'm not afraid to die.

I have a friend that died on the operating table and was revived and her experience was that death was quite peaceful and she felt no fear. I believe that one dies as one lives.

I'm not afraid of death, I just hope it's not painful/violent. That's my only concern.

I'm afraid of dying slowly but not afraid of dying if it can be quick as easy. I'm in my 60s now and have lived much of my life. Sad to say, it was not as happy or as fulfilled as I'd hoped and worked for. Therefore, if I had to option to croak comfortably, I wouldn't complain too much.

wta_zuperfann
Nov 27th, 2012, 05:24 AM
^ meant to say above "quick and easy"


BTW, as an infant, I was declared dead due to respiratory and cardiac problems. Somehow, I pulled through. Therefore, it might be said I've live my life on borrowed time.

As a matter of fact, that is the only thing that comforts me. What I'm afraid of is an immortal consciousness doomed to eternally roam the universe thinking over and over about everything I screwed up while alive... of which there's a lot. :help: If I knew for sure it's just a blackout and eternal oblivion, I wouldn't really worry.
