Death anxiety

I’ll have to accept this fact of knowledge. I have death anxiety. Not that it’s a bad thing but the thought of that enables me to do things and do my best. Time is all what we have.

Death anxiety.

The fear of death has been rated as the most common and the second worst fear that troubles us… …The fear of death is largely due to four reasons. Firstly, the fear of the unknown, secondly, the fear of losing our loved ones, thirdly, fear of pain and suffering and/or being alone at the time of death and finally, the fear of ceasing to exist or the finality of death.

Some quotes:

“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.” – Pubilius Syrus (100 B.C.)

“A well-spent day brings happy sleep, so life well used brings happy death. Death is more universal than life, everyone dies but not everyone lives.” – Leondard da Vinci (1452-1519)

Steve Jobs had some words to say on the topics too. Read his commencement speech.

Often, how I make decisions is based on whether if I’ll have regrets. So, I ask myself, would I regret if I didn’t do this? if not, then I just do it. If yes, then I won’t. That’s the way I think.

  1. Hi,
    I found your article interesting and wanted to add that most people at some time in their lives think about death. Often, when we lose a loved one. The question is; as to whether we become consumed by our own morbidity as this can have a detrimental effects on us.
    I like the way you explain decision making and that time is all we have, so make the most of every minute.
    Many thanks

    Hi Dawn,

    Nice to meet you. Thanks for sharing a bit of info. I think it’s important to realize those fears and not let them to scare you. Too often, some people couldn’t handle it, give up, and do something that’s not good.

    We’re lucky to have the Internet to share information and connect to one another.

    Keep up with your website!
