@Alan McDougall,
No. What good does fear do any of us? A moment of trepidation is fine, it gives pause and time to look and examine. After that, you are wasting energy and valuable time.

@Alan McDougall,
I watched my father die of cancer over 30 years ago. Now my mother is dying of old age. I can see that death is not to be feared. It seems to be welcomed in such situations.

@seac,
Death is more or less okay, but they dying part can be horrible.

Someone quoted I really like the idea of heaven but hate having to die to get there.

@Alan McDougall,
I would like to say "No" in a cavalier sort of nonchalant off hand way, but I would be lying. I fear death. Maybe when I'm old and have had more time to think about it I won't, but as of right now I do.

I don't fear death, the idea of obliteration. I'd certainly be a coward about a painful death, if it were a lingering effect.

All your ancestors did not die, since you are here as a doppleganger made of their DNA.

@Alan McDougall,
Death cannot be experienced.
If there is no life after death, then you can't experience death because you are dead.
If there is life after death, then you won't experience death because your not dead.

Fear is a story fabricated by the mind to preserve its fabricated identity.

Yes, but the idea that death can't be prepared for is probably what makes the fear tolerable

A long time ago in forum far, far away, a friend told me that fear and anxiety are the result of a misapprehension of reality. And then we fought to the death over the point.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of your Dad and now facing the same thing with your beloved mother and I agree that with them it was/will be a blessed relief from suffering.

But are you not viewing the situation from your point of view rather than theirs?

I used to say that I didn't fear death, thought it made me seem more "self-actualized" or something to say that. The truth is that I have always feared death.

For someone who claims to have actually died why would you fear death?
And why would you fill your mind with thoughts of doom if you weren't fearful of existence?

@Alan McDougall,
The idea that at death, there is a sort of peace, is a nice thought. The Corpse Bride reflects about life and death, and some ideas behind them.
Sometimes the uncertainty of both(what could and couldn't happen) lingers in my thoughts

No, because it's con't come to tell you so why you fear about death what will happen is happened. death is acceptable to every one
