    I'm not scared of dying, I just don't want to die, if you know what I mean. As long as my death is a painless one I'll be happy.

    It's a natural fear of all living things. Fear of the unknown perhaps.

    Meh when your dead your dead your not really gone care about it then. You can be killed at any time so I think it's pointless being scared about it because you never know when it's going to happen. All I really hope is that my death is the definition of going out with a bang :giggle:

    I dont think people are generally scared of dying.
    They just dont want to! They enjoy being alive.
    The idea that you just wont exist anymore is quite surreal!

    i think about it quite a lot. Wish i didn't but I cant help it. If I wake at a strange time in the night, like 4am or something, my mind immediately jumps to the concept that im gonna die one day. I dont think aboout it in the day, Only at night time for some reason.

    Theres been times where i've looked forward to dying though. I imagine that if i didn't have such a cool, nice family who would be devistated by my death, i'd probably have topped myself already!!

    And that is probably true. Until one actually has to face death in the form of terminal disease, for example. Then people are very afraid of dying.

    I am petrified of dying, if your thread was the 'how do you want to die' thread, i purposely avoided it because i am just so scared that it's going to happen one day. i think about it all the time, and it often leads to horrible anxiety attacks. (i know thats not normal, i have generalised anxiety disorder.)

    why? i don't want to not exist anymore. i absolutly love every single second of every single day, i don't want to forget all the amazing things that have happened to me, i don't even want to forget the horrible ones. i don't want to be burnt or put into a hole in the ground and eventually forgotten about. i don't want this amazing, brilliant thing that is living to have to end. i don't want to have to leave all the people i love, i don't want to not be able to cuddle up in bed and listen to the rain outside, to dance all night, to experience new things and meet new people.
    i am scared of what it feels like, i am scared of what, if anything, comes afterwards. i just LOVE being alive. i don't know if it's because i'm so scared but the idea of people actually being ok with dying really just, confuses me. how can you ever be ok with it?

    bad times.

    I agree. It's just that I already have too many fears and I don't want to add dying to that. If I got a terminal disease I would definitely be scared, not of the actual part where you die, but of what I would miss and the things I wouldn't be able to do. I think it's the idea of not living anymore that scares people, not the actual moment of death.

    The unknown is interesting.
    Everyone dies.

    I has no fear of death.

    I'd just rather live a little longer first as life is pretty rad and chances are when we die it's back to the nothingness.

    The agonising pain and struggle before giving your final breath, I'm guessing.
