  • I Hate Death
  • For myself, I have faced death twice, and I could say I'm ready. However, when one of my loved ones passes on, it's very, very sad. I hate to lose people or pets. One of my dogs had to go last Monday, and I'm still crying once in awhile.
  • Freedom and release from this life to the next.
  • I think someday death will be welcome when I can no longer do anything for myself and I live in constant pain.
  • I am mildly curious about death but not to the point that I am going to rush in to it :) It doesn't frighten me like it used to.
  • Death can't be avoided. I hope to live a life where I accomplish my goals. I would welcome death when my body has broken down to the point where life becomes a burden for me and especially those who need to care for me.
  • In general it sucks for the ones left behind.
  • Answering this would sure be easier if I knew what happened after death (if anything). But, since no one knows for sure (except for the dead) I would say I'm not looking forward to it.
  • It happens in its own time, no need to rush it.
  • it is the transition of Life not the end of it.
  • it is a natural part of life
  • Death is the final part of the process of life. I've had enough experience with death that I can accept it. It really is harder on the loved ones left behind. Very touchy but well done question.
  • I'm against it.
  • The idea of dying doesn't bother me very much in and of itself, what bothers me is the prospect of dying and losing any control of things in the world of the living by leaving it behind. Even though I wouldn't be there to see events unfold (Presumably), the idea of having to abandon my friends and loved ones and letting them do so for good or for ill, with no ability to help make things better... There's just something about that scenario that I don't like in the slightest.
  • I am very frightened of death for all those around me that I love. My own death, I am not afraid of facing, its just the people I know and love that it really scares me.
  • I'm a little frightened about it. I have way to many things to accomplish and I don't want an early death.
  • Sometimes I wish it would just hurry up and get here.
  • I'm not worried about it. It's happened to everyone before me, and it will to everyone after me. My purpose is to make life as nice as I can while I'm here.
  • It just does not bother me much. I refuse to worry about some-thing i can't change.
  • You mean my ex-girlfriend? No comment.
  • It's the only event we know for certain that will happen to us and everyone else. I'm not in any big hurry to get there but I don't worry about it. I try to stay more focused on living.
  • dont bother me. look at that kind of stuff on consumptionjunction or bangedup or m90 so i see that kind of stuff all the time and it dont bother me
  • Brings me closer to my maker.
  • death, doesn't bother me, it is how my death will affect my wife.
  • I don't like it..It makes me sad, but its a fact of life.
  • scared.
  • To those who die in Christ, It's their best day, simply because they have obtained a part in the first resurrection. But to them that don't, there is uncertainty because they don't know the destination of their souls....
  • it's a natural part of life and it happens to EVERY living thing eventually.
  • i am not afraid of dying, but i often day dream about what it would be like if my fiance died or my close friends and family. I think i'm more scared of THEM dying than myself.
  • to be honest, i dont care much for it.
  • My doctors have told me that I probably have between 2 and 5 years to live ( cancer from Agent Orange exposure while in Vietnam ). I plan to live 15 - 20 years, but however long I have is largely irrelevant. I've been living on borrowed time since the night before my 25th birthday when I was pinned down in a rice paddie in Vietnam. Every day since then has been a plus. Like most people, I want to sick around as long as possible, but from a personal viewpoint, I really don't fear death. I do want to stay with my wife as long as possible for several reasons, not the least of which is that one of her daughters from her first marriage died of brain cancer about three years ago and I don't want her to suffer because I may have to leave too.
  • I'm not afraid of dying..I'm afraid of not living. everyone dies so why be afraid of it. but while your here might as well live it up and if you die in the process..well...thats life.
  • Ok... death.... it's going to happen. I'ts not optional so get over it and accept it. Avoid it if at all possible but embrace it when it happens. It's a new journey... destination unknown.
  • I don't like it when it happens to other people, and as my parents get older I know that I am going to have to face losing one or both possibly soon, but for myself I'm not bothered.
  • death, doesn't bother me life dos
  • I say bring it on....... the state of the world at the moment, I shall be glad to be dead and out of it.
  • i used to sit inside to hide from death,now i am out there looking for it so i can kick it in the teeth.
  • It's the circle of life. I do miss those that I have known that have passed on. No way to stop it, so I accept it.
  • my view on death has gone through an interesting transition. at first, like most people, i feared death. then i had a somewhat suicidal period of time and that made me seek death as apposed to fearing it. now i do not fear it, nor do i seek it, i simply welcome it.
  • Death is part of life. No one gets out of this world alive.
  • Why are we dying to live, when we're living to die? That's how I feel.
  • It will come when the Good Lord above says it will come and that is that, so I do not worry.
  • Well, I haven't been touched closely by death, so how I feel about it is kind of theoretical. I do feel like a bit of freak when it comes to death, though, because when other people are greatly affected, I am not. For instance, there was a girl in my high school that died unexpectedly (I can't remember how). There was a great outpouring of grief, even from people who didn't know her at all, who didn't even recognize her from the halls: they were just overwhelmed by the tragedy of it. On the other hand, I couldn't have cared less. On another occasion, my best friend knew someone who died in a skidoo accident: the sister of a friend she had as a little girl. She hadn't seen this girl in at least a decade, and had never been close with her anyway, but she was so upset to hear she'd died. I couldn't understand why she felt that way. I understand grieving in the sense of missing the person. I did grieve for my cat, who died at a young age and without showing any signs of illness until the day before. But I didn't grieve for my other cats, who were very old and had both suffered long, drawn-out illnesses. I loved them very much, but I'd said goodbye to them long ago, when it became apparent their health was declining. I've also had two great-grandmothers die, but it was no surprise, and I felt no sadness about it. In fact, I felt relief, especially for one of them, who had been so weak and bitter and unhappy for many years. Unless it's unexpected, I just don't get the responses. And when it is unexpected, I don't get that it's the death that upsets people so much as the sudden change: I think humans don't adapt to change very well, and when that change is negative, that alone is enough to upset us terribly. What upsets me much, much, WAY much more than death is pain. Death is nothing. Pain is absolutely--I just can't stand it. I can't stand it in myself--I'm a big whiner when I'm in pain--but in a sense it's even harder to stand when I see it in someone or something else. A dead pigeon on the sidewalk is unfortunate, but an injured pigeon huddling in a doorway is enough to ruin my day. After all, death is necessary, there's no avoiding it. But plenty of people and animals avoid terrible pain, so maybe that's why it's so much worse to me: it's not necessary, like death is, so it's harder to accept.
  • I find it very interesting. Of course its sad when a friend or loved one passes on, but there is just something strange about it all too which makes me curious.
  • necessary
  • Not scared of it, but I'm scared at how much it can hurt.
  • A fact of life.
  • Being dead is the easy part.
  • Live each and every day as if it could be your last, because it might be. Never pass up an opportunity to tell those close to you, how much you love them, because you never know, it just might be their last day on the planet. Don't go to sleep angry at anyone, life is just to short to piss away your energy on something as fruitless as anger. Laugh, at yourself, at life, and remember above all, always look on the bright side of life!
  • Well it's an ironic part to this existence. I can't speak for others but I know that I've been dying to live (via multiple struggles) only to be living to die...damn! I in one sense welcome death because it'll be a sweet relief from the way things are in this existence. I would though also be sad if this is the only thing we get so I'm hoping that there's another form of existing beyond this. Just to put it out there I'm not talking about any "afterlife" after the religious sort as I don't believe in those STORIES!
  • hmm well the process of dying seems like it could suck depending on how you go out and how long the process takes but other than that I have no opinions because I haven't died yet...it might suck worse than living, it might be totally awesome...I guess when I do get to find out I won't be able to let you know.
  • BRING IT ON!
  • Not much. It's real, like alot of facts of life, I just accept it as such
  • Growing up, I used to be scared of my own death. Now that I'm older, I'm afraid of those close to me dying instead.
  • Death must be great cause no one ever comes back. But in truth dying sucks plus theres the fear of the unknown. death itself doesnt suck cause u are not around to know if it sucks or not- its just nothing.
  • Gotta go sooner or later but I'm nowhere near ready now
  • People think life is a gift, BUT I THINK DEATH IS A GIFT! Especially after living for such a long time!
  • It scares the hell outta me....
  • The fear of death is really just the fear of loss - of losing loved ones. There's no point in fearing death itself...You won't care when it happens to you.
  • It happens to almost everything, animate and not. It stinks for those who remain, but oh well.
  • I feel kind of like Woody Allen did: Something about death bothers me; I think it's the hours.
  • It's coming
  • I'm sure that by the time this cancer has put me in pain for several years, I will welcome death as an old friend. He and I have become acquainted over the years, first in Vietnam, then in my various mishaps.
  • DONT LIKE DEATH, BUT BECAUSE OF CHANGE, DEATH WILL BE HEAVY IN AMERICA IN 2011/ AND OR 2012 THANKS TO OBAMA'S FIRST LAW REGISTERED 2/4/09
  • I'm very scared. The thought of eternity is too much for me to handle, so I don't dwell on it much. I just hope the religions are right.
  • I fear death. Mostly because I wonder what will happen to me. Then I feel bad that I have children because someday they will have to face it too. I hate that your alone when you die, its not a shared experience. I think when I was younger, I was more spiritual then I am now so death didn't bother me. But along the way, I have lost my religion so now I have to wonder what is this all for? Why am I alive, what is my purpose. I think this is why humans need to have some thoughts of the afterlife, because really knowing that you will just die, no longer exist really seems pointless.
  • A "journey" that has come to an end
  • It's a natural cycle all nature goes through. And like all nature, we come back.
