    I know everyone is worried by death to some degree. But there are a lot of people who seem quite relaxed about it, and have the 'I'm going to take risks and if death happens to me early, that's the way it goes' attitude. I envy this as someone who has anxiety surrounding health, plane rides and anything where there is a moderate risk of death involved. I don't believe in an afterlife which makes it worse. Insights are appreciated 😊

    Well, everybody is going to die and the world seems so random at times and people, in general, are so insignificant despite what we think, lol, so dying is okay to me because I realize all of that, lol.

    I try to remember this. I think we're the only species that contemplates its own existence which is annoying, I'd rather be a duck 😂

    You could get a lobotomy, lol, and live out the rest of your life devoid of your rational mind, lol.

    Would be quite nice, however I imagine there are plenty of downsides of doing that!

    I have anxiety about a lot of things but not death! It happens to everyone and if it comes it comes. I don't believe in an after life so I won't be around to care that I'm dead lmao. So yeah it just doesn't bother me.

    My view of it is fear in the same way I fear potentially running out of cornflakes and having to inconvenience myself to buy some more. Like it'd be bad but getting serious anxiety over it just isn't helpful cause at the end of the day somebody could just break into my house and murder me someday and any anxiety I may have had would still not have prepared me for it. Not worth the worry.

    There is no point worrying over something that you have no control over.

    But it is only a transition into the next phase of you. Before that, you were star stuff, the debris from when a star or stars blew up, lol.

    I fear it because I will lose my consciousness. I value my existence and I'm afraid to lose it.

    That's quite a beautiful way of looking at it

    I don't fear it in the abstract but that's not to say that I fearlessly pursue actions that could feasibly end my life. In the immediacy it is a survival mechanism, so I'm not big on doing backflips along cliff edges. But in general terms, I'm comfortable with the idea that I will die and that it might be painful.

    Death inspires me. It's such an easy way out but there's courage in living, so that's what I'll do.

    With me its more how Im going to die which I fear, than death itself.

    I still feel the same even after having a stroke last month (maybe even 2 mini ones) which put me in hospital for nearly two weeks.Still have to have tests etc though!
