The minute we're born, we start dying. We die a little more every day. Young or old, rich or poor, there's nothing we can do to stop it. It may happen in a couple months or fifty years from now, but no matter when it happens, it will seem too soon to you.

We all know it's coming, but most people try not to think about it. What about you? Have you accepted that you will die one day? Say, would you be okay with dying tomorrow? Can you even bear the thought of not existing?

What are your thoughts on death? There's no right or wrong answer here. Speak your mind!
I have for a long time, as well as accepting the inevitable death of family members and friends.
I've accepted it, and rarely think about it.
I don't think I ever will.
If you were immortal, wouldn't you be suffered from illness for such long time when you caught? Death is inevitable, of course.
Death is something nobody could escape, see or hear.

Death is a ! isnt it

It's no use worrying about it all the time, but I'd like it to happen later rather than sooner. Accepting it is too fatalistic.

How?

Considering there's nothing you can do to prevent it, why fear it? Seems rather pointless to be afraid of fate (for me at least).

I asked how not why.

You can't choose what you are and aren't afraid of most of the time. Fear is often irrational.
Judging by my irrational fear of death and the inevitable...I would say no not yet

Why fear something you can't prevent? It's similar to fearing pain or fearing ageing. What's the use in fearing it? Why put yourself through that fear?

Fearing heights is understandable because there's a chance you might fall (and if you don't die) break every bone in your body + excruciating pain; but I just cannot understand why somebody would fear death. It makes no sense to me.

Because that fear is irrational. Some people fear death, some people don't. It's not something easily explained away with logic.
Fearing death isn't irrational though. Why would you want to be dead?
It's irrational because it's out of your control, unless you want to die.
It's not completely out of my control. I can avoid fatal accidents if I'm cautious. If a bus comes charging at me, my instincts tell me to jump out of the way and save myself. In this case, fear of death is useful.
Fair enough.
