    What are your thoughts on death?

    Banned
    I know this is a weird and odd question but i've been thinking about it a lot.

    What do you think happens when you die?
    Do you think 2012 is the end ?

    Don't know and don't care.

    Too busy enjoying life to be bothered about dying.

    Death - the only definite guarantee in life is its going to happen to you.

    Merry Christmas

    Best not to think about it. It can screw you up.

    Nice happy thread, woooooooooo, seasons greetings!

    What do I think happens when you die? Not sure, I will find out when it happens though.


    2012 the end? How many times has a year been predicted to be the end?

    This

    Erm may I suggest that if you find your self thinking alot about death that you go to the NHS depression website and fill in their question air it could be that you are showing some signs of depression and could do with a little help.
    Remember "depression is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign that you have had to be too strong, for too long!"

    very very true.

    When my husband first started doing his job (funeral director) it freaked him out a bit for first few months. Now its me he freaks out with the non stop optimism he has re life. Whenever I moan about something (which of course is hardly ever) he will say "many a person in local cemetery would swap places with you"! Very true!

    Why on earth waste your living moments wondering/worrying about death. Enjoy life as it does fly by so quick - cant believe I am 24 already

    make the most of life, your only going to live once so who gives a shiat about death.

    Humans are always fascinated with death. Suggesting someone might be depressed is a little extreme.

    OP.

    When you die, the lights go off. That's it. No heaven, no hell.

    Since we know little about the OP I dont think it is a bad thing to sugges,t would rather offer advice and see it not be neded then dismiss what might be something useful.

    Not wanting to disagree with you twice in one day F&F, depression and thinking about death more than what may be deemed 'normal' are closely linked.

    My 'episode' was triggered by the prolonged thought of death (granted this was also fueled with occasional drugs and too much alcohol). Luckily, I was out of it within a year although I know others live with it throughout their lifetimes to a greater or lesser degree.

    One thing that did help me (sorry ladies) is that it is considered almost normal for men in their late 20s to go through such episodes. To have the 'expertise' of the older generation that went through these episodes is a great help - the feeling of solitude doesn't help!

    So again, my advice is try not to think about it. Or at least thing about it to a degree that you can put into context. And try to do what you feel you need to in moderation. The wrong combination can be quite troubling!

    To be honest with you, i rather not share what i am going through since you don't know .
    But if you must know i have had a person close to me die ... and myself have a near death experience therefore is it wrong to wonder ?

    Whatever your personal experience is, the advice I will give you is don't think you are alone in thinking along these lines - and ignore those who are to ill equipped to understand your point or question.

    No, totally normal, especially when someone close dies. Try and keep yourself occupied and talk to someone about how you are feeling. You may need to see a doctor if you can't get your head straight. Wishing you well.

    So where do you stand on Todestrieb?

    The one certainty we have in life is that we will die. Contemplating it doesn't make one depressed. Of course if you're thinking about committing the act of suicide then maybe you are depressed. But I saw nothing in the OP to suggest that.

    It was obvious to me, and something that my doctor confirmed, that it was the knowledge that I would never see my loved ones again.
    I, like you, do not believe in life after death, and I am an atheist. Neither of which helps to be honest!

    The thought of nothing was the trigger for me and having a less than stable mind set at the time was the cause.
    Everything you know and touch, no more. Analyse that too much and you're gonna be in a bad place.

    I would imagine it would be the same for all living things - the end, lights out..... unless there is an afterlife for every single living thing.

    A Spiders hell, wouldn't want to end up there...

    Like others have said, best not to dwell on it too much. I think there is life after death only in terms of genetic relations or in remembering the words or deeds of the person who has passed.

    what?

    At least you are closer to death now than you were when you started this thread!!

    When you die, your soul/spirit/chi/energy persists while your physical part decomposes.

    The Mayans only bothered to calculate their calendar until 2010. That doesn't mean the world will end though, they just calculated it so far and then stopped.

    Pick a time of the week/month/year or place to remember your friend and your friendship.

    Remember what it was about them that you loved. Write these thoughts down and keep them safe - you'll need them when your memory starts to fade.

    Don't feel bad about weeping, but don't forget to laugh when you think about them.

    Talk to them if it helps and bring them into conversations, particularly with their relatives.

    You'll see them soon enough so live a full and meaningful ife so that you'll have plenty to talk about when you do.

    Life is a journey that we must all travel, but only a fool makes no plans for what happens at the end of it.

    I'm not scared to die, but I hope it's not in a nasty way
