  I'll go through life at full speed, sometimes not thinking to stop and look around.  I don't want life to past me by but I guess non of us have a choice.  I'm so scared about what the future brings.  I'm not afraid to leave this hurtful unfair world, I just fear for my friends and family that will miss me.  I vision my death,I don't know when it will happen, I hope I'm not crazy.  I think I worry to much about it.

Death will find us all - no matter where we try to hide.... Perhaps you might consider readjusting your focus... Envision life instead - It's a much more productive vantage point..

I agree with Nan. Just live for now instead of tomorrow. Before you know it today will be yesterday...and didn't you say you don't want life to pass you by? So don't spend your days in fear. Live.

Live and let live.

Live in the now. For God has control of the tomorrow! Let Him worry about it!

Hi, it is a scary question, I agree. But all we can do is go for whatever happiness is now, and not worry too much about later. Or it will ruin "now".

No, you're not crazy, you are just in turmoil, as many of us are and sometimes we don't know what to do.  Writing helps and even some would try to destroy that, don't allow it.....

take your sanctuary in your mind and your words.  Without that we have little left to cling to.  Sometimes the only thing you can do is utter something but you know what?
It comes from your soul.  Keep that alive and you will be alive and even when we do die the soul lives.

No one can take my last words from me nor the ones I speak or write now.  Some have tried, circumstances have tried but I won't allow it and why not?

Because someone like you may need to hear that their being alive matters and while you are, make us hear what you have to say and
you may touch someone else.

You matter.  Live for now.,
read my quote after my signature, I believe it with all of my heart.  More so today than I have ever believed anything in my entire life.
Don't worry about death and if you do envision it?  Write about's a healing, an outlet and don't allow anyone to rob you of it.  Hold onto it for dear life.

Best to you

Every man dies.
Not every man truly lives.

Yeah - you probably do worry too much about it...but then I can relate.

You know how people often think 'oh a car accident? That happens to others...' and things like that? I don't - I always acknowledge it...I am utterly and profoundly aware of my mortality.

It would be easy to say 'live for today and don't fear death because it is unavoidable.' It is a lot harder to do isn't it?

You have to plan for tomorrow to a certain extent it's true, while managing not to obssess about the end result. I suppose the trick is 'how' - that is the eluding part - how does one just 'stop' fearing it?

I would suggest reading up on it - seriously. 'Feel the fear and do it anyway' is a great book - can't remember the author though. Also, reading books on the psychology of death is interesting - and can help you find some perspective. Writing like Irish says is also very helpful.

The fear of the future may never fully go away and I don't think it does for anyone really. Freud said that humans are completely unable to face their own death - and that is about the one thing I completely agree with him on.

You'll do just fine........good luck.....

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I hate your socks. I'd like to burn them!
