Are you scared of dying? I'm terrified :(Watch this thread
I just wanted to know if this is something unique to me... I've never met anyone my age scared of death... I guess it's not the kinda thing you talk about. I just find it hard to comprehend that there is 'nothing' more once you die... I quite often think about my great-great-great grandpa... I don't know his name, I don't think my mum would or anything for that matter and that's the kind of thing that upsets me.
I am unsure about God, Jesus, Christianity, etc... I like to believe in a 'God', like I personally think the world is too perfect to have 'just been' and I've read a lot of theories which really worked for me. But at the same time I don't want to say I believe in God as a cop out... I want to actually 'know there is a God' and right now I think I 'want to know there is a God...' does that make sense?
I'm only 22 (my birthday yesterday actually) and I didn't even tell anyone it was my birthday as I didn't want to be reminded about it (obviously my parents knew - but they know I don't celebrate birthdays although they don't know why... I think they think it is an ex thing, heh).
In normal life people would probably think me the last person to write this... I Thai Box (Basically full contact fighting with Knees and Elbows) and I have had Cage Fights, but every day I think about death and how that might be 'it' and sometimes it makes me literally feel sick.
Sorry for the rant and ramble... I guess my birthday brought it on
it occasionally enters my mind-and then it freaks me out
it's a very scary prospect
but it's just the cycle of life
And why do we always view death as being the end- why do we view it in a negative light and why are we even filled with dread sometimes? We know nothing of what happens after a person dies- what if it's not the end but a whole new stage of what we would call "life"? How can you be scared of something you know nothing about? Of course the thought of the unknown fills some people with dread but isn't it better to enjoy life at its full in the present and just take things as they come? Isn't it better to adopt a positive and optimistic attitude instead of fretting about what will happen when we die?
Death is a natural process.... we are all born, we live and we eventually die. =)
I know exactly what you mean though; the idea of suddenly being in oblivion is completely absurd to me.
You all think I'm crazy don't you! Well I'm not! You're just jealous cos the voices are talking to me!
