What scares you the most about death?
Is it not knowing when?
how you will die?
Or is it life after death?
Perhaps, you may be afraid of a sudden or painful death where you could not say goodbyes…
Let’s face it, death is a scary subject.
As humans, it is natural to be afraid of the unknown.
There are two things about death that scare me the most: knowing or feeling my life slip away and being forgotten.
Death kind of reminds me of a haunted house, you know something is going to happen, but you don’t know when or how.
It scares me to think when my time comes, I will know my time is up…I will be helpless. I think if I felt my heart beat start to slow as my body relaxed, I would be terrified.
The finality of death also scares me. Once I cross over , I can no longer communicate with the living the way I do now. I feel my loved ones all around me and know that they are there to remind me of their presence, but we can never physically have a conversation again.
I do have assurance that I will see my loved ones again but until they experience death and join me there, we’ll be separated, like I am separated now.
My biggest fear about death is I will be forgotten.
My name will become poison to the lips that once sang it aloud….
