Are you afraid of death?

I don't understand why so many people are afraid of dying. When you are dead you are emotionless. You won't even know that you ever lived. So why would you fear it?

Updates:
Thanks for all the opinions guys!! xx

  • I'm afraid of ending. Of being forgotten. Throughout my life a little voice deep inside has constantly told me "don't make ripples, don't be noticed" but I've fought it. We all do. But when you die, it wins. You make one last splash, and you disappear beneath the surface never to be seen again.
    Even if your body is raised up in a hundred years, it's not you anymore. It's cold dehumanised bones.
    Everyone dies.
    Everyone is eventually forgotten.
    And then what are you? Nothing.
    All of life's experiences. All the pain you have endured. All of the scars which make up the individual which is you... fade.

    That's absolutely f*cking terrifying... untill one day when it's not.

  • i guess for most its maybe a religious thing, a lot who believe in afterlives or hell may be afraid of where they will end up. for others who think that we just dye and thats the end, then maybe they are afraid of that too. Also I've known people who didn't want to die since they liked living or who didn't think that it was their time to go yet. i think this is a very personal thing and to most its a touchy subject. for me i believe that there is still something after we die, and that we will all go to this place dispite of what we did while alive, my religion i think that all are forgiven and no matter which god we cam from we all came from the same one so we are all equal. for me there is no fear or shame in dying, everyone eventually will and we all have our time. its okay if not everyone is this way since we are all different people, we simply must accept how they feel and just live our lives while we can. for those who have died, rest in peace.

  • Hey, it's not that I'm afraid of death per se, what I fear is 1) mechanism of death (specifically pain), 2) the impact of my death on those I love, and 3) not fear, but sadness at no longer having the unique and amazing opportunity to enjoy life - my life, and all life, the universe and everything! Hope that helps!

  • Life and death were in each others company, in limbo if you like - and life asked death:

    "why do people love me but hate you?"

    Then death replied: "Because you are a beautiful lie and I'm a painful truth"

    No more second chances. Big deal. Ur dead.

  • I do not fear death. In fact, I find death uninteresting. If hypothetically there is something after death, I would get bored very easily. An eternity of anything would eventually get boring.

  • Its the fear of the unknown that makes people scared than the actual death itself.

  • Not afraid of death or being dead, more like afraid of how I'm gonna die, it's very rare that people die peacefully 😓 I'm scared of the pain that may come with it.

  • I think most people are afraid of the often agonizing process of dying, rather than actually being dead. Eventually we are all going to be dead. I don't really have a fear of death.

  • Yes, I am. It's my biggest fear.
    I know I'm going to die someday, but what scares me the most is the uncertainty of what happens next. I'm also afraid of the way I'm going to die, I hope I have a peaceful death. I also would like to die old.
    Plus, the idea of being buried or cremated seems terrifying to me.
    Humans fear death because it represents the unknown and the unknown is always scary.

  • Am I afraid of death? Not really. Do I want to die? No.
    I think that if I were told that I was dying, yes it would be fucking terrible. But if it was something fatal, I think I would just accept it.

  • I don't think it's the being dead that people are afraid of but more the process of dying tbh.. That being said I'm kinda afraid of it but it's inevitable and I know I'm not the first one that would make it so..

  • fear of death is something almost everything has its whether you have the Courage to stand up and hold your head high and die with honor that makes you different then the rest. Quote from one piece Zoro, Id rather die then run away with my tale between my legs, A Scar on he back is the greatest shame to a Swordsmen
