I've been thinking about this lately, why exactly do we fear the unknown?
Firstly, We (The majority of us) Fear death, Why?.. Because it's unknown. Which in all fairness makes sence seeming as there could be hell once we
are gone, But why does unknown have to be bad? For all we know our souls could go somewhere amazing, Is it just some sort of instinct that makes us
fear what we do not know? If yes, why do we allways asume badly?
Now I'm not saying everybody shares this fear, I just feel like this myself and was wondering if anyone could help me understand why I feel like
this?. I know it is totally normal, and I am a generally nervous person but I just want a insight on how people can just, for example, walk into a
dark supposedly haunted house and not know whats in it, and not be terrified?!
I think my main agenda here is death. I can't understand how one day I'm utterly terrified to die, then the next day i'm taking a 'bring it on'
attitude and doing silly things that I know could hurt me. I admit, I am terrified of death, which brings me back to my point, only because I've done
bad things in the past and I don't know what will happen to me.
What do you think about death? I would love to see if any people here are unphased by the unknown.
But I guess we wont know what happens untill our time comes?
