Fear Of Death
SoulNHealing posted:
How do one overcome this fear that is the cause to my PAD,Ive saw alot of death in a young age&I feel like it messed up my mind. I have had this fear since the age of 14&this year it got much worse,I don't know if it's because Iam close to 30 with no life&nothing good. I just don't know&I want to overcome this fear already,it has already took so much of my life away&the fear is the only thing that keeps me here. I know one day we all must go I just can't except the thought of being no more,I want a long life. But know that I must except the truth&move on&live,so that I may have all that I desire with peace of mind&joy.

there is no blanket kinda way on this.its very much an individual thing.even as a child-death has never held any fear to me,just the opposite how i will die,is of course in the back of most minds.i cant imagine anyone wanting to go through a long and painful journey to the end.when time comes-most hope it to be fast naturally.some say religion helps them,me i do not have any religious believes/knowledge and don't need or want them.never have.everything that lives eventually dies.but how-no one can predict so perhaps its not death you fear but how you will pass on-they are separate things.good luck on finding the answer to your question.
