Death Scares Me

This is kind of a dark touchy subject but I recently knew two people who passed in the last week. They were both in their 20’s. I don’t understand how it works. Does our body completely just shut down and we’re done forever? Or is there an afterlife where we become something else or go somewhere else? I’m honestly terrified and dead people scare me. Like when the guy I knew died I couldn’t sleep. I slept with the lights on because I had recently talk to him. I think I honestly have bad aniexty. It’s just such a weird concept. I want to believe there’s an afterlife so bad. My mom and I were staring at the ocean last night pondering it. I honestly can’t imagine loosing my parents. They’re my rocks and I don’t even want to think about it. EVER. But I also think about me dying young. I REAAALLLY don’t want to and hope I don’t. But then I think about how sick I am and wonder if that’s going to contribute to what happens to me. Like my doctors say I should live a relatively long life. But sometimes I think otherwise because of what it feels like some days. Sorry for the dark post guys, just felt like sharing what was on my mind.

  1. There is definitely an after life but you aren’t going there anytime soon dear. Believe it for yourself train your mind to believe you will live a long life no matter your situation now. I am soo sorry for your friends that passed on however the same is not going to happen to you. Always look in the mirror and tell yourself that

  2. So sorry about the loss of your friends. Death is definitely the most unfortunate and terrifying part about life. Try to not let it be an everyday thought in your life. Sometimes it’s really hard but try to also focus on the positive stuff believing that it’s not in the near future for you and that you will not be dying young. Like your doctors I also believe you still have a long life ahead of you.
    My heart goes out to you and I pray that you will be okay.

  3. I relate to this a lot! I have extreme anxiety about death. Sometimes if I start thinking about me or someone I love dying, my throat closes up and I have a really intense panic attack. It’s hard to explain, but most people don’t understand. I’m just afraid of the unknown. I completely get this post.

  4. There is an afterlife, and if you believe and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior you can live forever in heaven. Death is a scary thought for sure, for most people but if you know what’s going to happen and where you are going to go after, it’s not that scary anymore. I am praying for peace for you!
