    How do you feel about death?

    Meaning - your own inevitable death. I feel like this subject should be less taboo to talk about because it's helpful to talk about these kinds of things instead of letting them rot in our heads (pun intended).

    So, some questions on the subject!

    Does it scare you to think about it or are you more accepting of it? If it scares you, what would you say scares you about it? Do you feel like any of the categories that were listed in this video resonate with you? It's okay if none of them do. Feel free to share your own specific fears.

    How do you envision your funeral going? Would you prefer there to be mourning or would you rather people celebrate your life? Maybe you don't have a preference.

    And lastly, how do you think you would like your remains to be cared for? Natural burial, normal? Alternatives? I've heard of being made into a tree for example: Biodegradable burial pod turns your body into a tree - CNN
    Or even turning your ashes into a "LifeGem" - LifeGem - Ashes to Diamonds

    I am not afraid to die.

    And I hope people celebrate my life, because I cried enough tears while I was living! :)

    Lol, I am like the most afraid apparently. But, I am a 6 after all. I'm blaming it on that!!!

    A lot of these examples given would require to be answered differently depending on the cause of death, I think. Dying violently or in an accident as a young man is obviously very different from simply falling asleep as an old man. There is no "general death" for me and exploring and discussing all the possibilities would take forever.

    Generally, I know God will take me back sooner or later, there's nothing I can change about it, all I can do is make the most of the time He granted me on this world. I'm not really afraid to die and neither do I spend much, or any time, really, thinking about my inevitable death.
    If I had to choose, I'd go either with an old-school Christian burial or be incinerated and my ash thrown somewhere into nature.

    I'm not afraid of death, it's pointless to fear inevitability. I don't care about my funeral or what happens to my remains after death, It won't probably matter as I won't to live to see it anyway.As for mourning I prefer not, sounds like leaving a pointless burden on other people, never liked whole drama concerning death. I see death as either form of liberation and obtaining true peace (if you just cease to exist after death) or beginning of a new journey better or worse than this one (if there is afterlife).

    How do you feel about death?

    I didn't watch the video

    I'm not afraid of death. I'm afraid of where I'll go after death. I believe in heaven and hell. The least place i want to be is in hell

    I'm actually looking forward to being with the Lord in heaven. But i believe I'm not good enough to be taken up there yet

    I voted the 1st option, but I'm not afraid to die.
    I just would rather avoid death so that my nuclear family doesn't have to live with my loss. I know they would be so devastated, they would never recover. They would eventually, after many years, learn to live with it, but living with it is not a good life. I know that their pain would be infinite.

    There's so many things I want to do first! I don't fear death; I'm actually looking forward to it. I'm intensely curious to see what happens :) I'm hoping I get to be patient for a long time though :)

    I've told all my loved ones that I plan on living forever, but should something unfortunate occur, to know that I love them and don't be too distraught.

    I'm not afraid of eventual death. I do want to live a long and fulfilling life, and I am afraid of that not happening. I'm not afraid of dying young, but of the monotony of a dull life and the effects of aging can concern me. As you get older (and I'm still relatively young), it does feel like time goes by faster, that youth is fleeting, that just as you learn things it's rather too late to do much with that insight, etc. Mortality starts to feel more real, whereas when you were a child it was so far off, as if it was a fairytale; you realize there is limited time and you probably won't do a fraction of what you'd love to do.

    So I think being afraid of not being able to carry out ambitions, plans or projects and no longer having experiences is closest then. Death is not the only stopper to these things though.

    The unconsciousness of death is not something I fear since I won't be aware of it, haha. The process of death....well, we all hope for a swift and painless one as possible.

    I also fear aging more of out vanity than pain... I know that sounds terribly shallow, but it's true. Getting older doesn't just make you feel closer to death, it makes you feel....uglier.

    Literally the only reasons I'm afraid to die:

    (1) I don't want to be in pain.
    (2) I'm afraid of what comes after.

    That isn't to say that, if I didn't have those fears, I would welcome death. I'm just indifferent otherwise because I feel like I live every day knowing in the back of my mind that it'll happen regardless. For that reason I never saw the point in making any serious ties here on Earth that I wouldn't be okay with abandoning, should I die any second.
