I have pondered on the same things a lot, because I see where you are coming from when you talk about life and it causes me to think, well the worst
thing that can happen is _____. There is either something after life or not. If there is nothing, it can't hurt you cause it is nothing. If there
is something, well then you'll be there.
Still I have to say I actually fear death. Why? Because there seems to be no turning back once it happens. It seems a pretty big leap to take (that
everyone takes eventually), and you can't actually look before you do it.
I am not sure where my life is going, deep down, it doesn't seem that promising to me (according to family/friends expectations of me, in material
ways). Don't feel like I'll ever live up to whatever they think I should, not sure I even want to. So I know what you mean about sleeping forever.
I know that if I were to die, there would be people sad, even though death is natural and inevitable, whether I was a good person or not, they would
be attached to me (when they don't truly know me). Not even in death, but in life, not being what they think I should they will want to feel sorry,
and be sad when thinking of me. Just doesn't seem fair to be the cause of peoples pain at some time when it's inevitable and not a choice of your
Whew, that is self-centered, but I don't see the justice in the situation.
Seems death is drastic and unnecessary (If our existence is by some God's design), in the grand scheme of things, change happens slowly. Many people
try to have a peaceful life and learn what they can, but death cannot be avoided, and I think that no matter who you are, it will be a pretty bumpy
I hope that on my deathbed I am not afraid, but who knows. Think about how much it could have to do with your mood and attitude at the time, the way
you take it. Shoot, it might have something to do with what you had for breakfast that morning!
