When I was maybe around 4th grade or so, I remember being scared of dying. I knew that one day we all grow older and die eventually. I was scared out of my mind! I would go to bed at times crying just thinking about it. My sister did the same thing and it just kind of became a haunting thought, but as time went by I started to care less.

Eventually I grew up and I accepted that you were born to die and it hasn't been a problem for the longest time.

So...I was wondering if any of you went through the same phase? Were you scared of dying when you were younger? Would you tell your parents or people close to you?

I worried about dying when I was really little then one day I came to the conclusion that if death happened so much and to everything then it can't be all that bad.

I was scared of dying at around 6 and I would always cry because id have nightmares of my grandparents dying in front of my eyes in hospital.

I was terrified of dying pretty much all through my childhood. Mostly I was scared because I was sure I was going to go to Hell. I never told anyone about it because I thought that I was the only "bad" one and didn't want anyone else to know for fear that they would reject me. I'm not a Christian anymore, so I don't really believe in Hell, but I'm still afraid of what happens to us after we die. In a weird way nonexistence seems almost as terrifying as eternal torture (almost). I don't really tend to think too much about it anymore though.

Just the sheer thought of not being able to experience anything after death or even have a consciousness is very scary to me, but I think everyone eventually grows out of that. I'm still young so, I am kind of going through this phase, but not to the point where I cry, I was more oblivious to it when I was really young (probably because my family is Catholic and reassured those thoughts with things like Heaven). I'm rambling -__-

I have heard of others fearing death before but I've never seemed to be one of those people. One reason might be my faith, another might be my personality, or even how I was raised, I'm not really sure why I've never feared death. I don't fear how I will die or even when but I do hope to leave my mark on this world. The only thing I wish for when it comes to my death is that it isn't meaning less. That in someway somehow my death or the time before my death helps someone.

I'm actually more scared of pain than death itself.
Since I see death just to be the same as before I was born kinda thing. I wouldn't exist, so i wouldn't care anymore.
