Are you afraid of death?

    We are here in this world now. But every moments that goes by, we are nearing to our death.The ultimate truth, but scary. And I am afraid to die to be honest but it doesn't mean I live every moment in fear of death. When life is good, the feeling just don't hover but sometimes when I am alone and the thought of dying one day to never ever return again just cloud my mind and makes my heart heavy.
    Has this feelings ever happened to any of you?
    Are you afraid to die?

    I personally don't fear it though. I'm spiritual but not religious, I just think I will be at peace once I die :)

    You are a brave sir if you don't fear death and I salute you. But I have never ever come across a real person who was not afraid of death. Once I saw a love torn girl who lost her desire to live and took poison to die, but when death slowly and painfully started to grab her.and she saw death coming So near, she was afraid to die. I can never forget that fearful face.

    @sagafakir That's not good, really sorry to hear that. Well of course there will always be the fear of the unknown to some degree because dying is something none of us have ever done! I just think that dying is something that we should not fear. Being in pain or suffering is a different story altogether though.

    I have personally witnessed people in a fate worse than death (horrible health issues, e.g.), so while death can be a scary issue to deal with, there are far scarier ways to live.

    I'm not afraid to die. It's inevitable. If you constantly live your life fearing death, you won't really be able to live your life to the fullest. I live by that thought everyday, and don't worry about impending death, but how I can live life to the fullest every single day. :)

    Not afraid of death here either, I learned a long time ago we are all born to die and it is what you do in-between birth and dieing that really matters. Like jrbiz said that there is scarier ways to live as i am experiencing some of them now with health issues that after 8 month now they still dont know what is wrong and feel like im just getting sicker everyday. It is not the getting sick or the thought that i may die before they figure it out but the not knowing what is wrong that bothers me more.

    @cblanke Sorry to hear about your health. I will pray for u.God bless u.
    I too know we are born to die. Well most of the time, the hustle and bustle of living don't even bring the thought of dying, It's just sometimes, u know when you see ur loved ones going one by one, the thought just suddenly grips me. But no, I don't live in constant fear.
    @jrbiz I too have seen people suffering..in fact my own, in so much pain, he just begged us to let him go and we were so helpless. But he is in peace now, forever shining as a star in the sky and blessing us.

    Everyone in this world except those who are in deep pain, misery, sorrow may not be afraid of death. Those who love their life and the lives of their near and dear ones are afraid of death.

    No phylosophic answer: Yes, I am! I'm sure I haven't done anything worthly in my life and I don't really know what I want to do in future but I want this future to happen.
