    Most people seem to fear death, but is that what you fear most, or is there something else?

      That there is too many hidden secrets and misconceptions about Life, that too many people have no idea or clue about, because of the end result, concludes the end of mankind.

      That is my only fear.

          Here is something new for you to fear:
          When you do finally die, we will bury you in the Pet Sematary.

          Are you a fan of the Ramones?

              The Ramones are a punk rock band from NYC, 1970's & 1980's.
              http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6GzVCYqoyY

              I don't want to be buried
              in a Pet Sematary
              I don't want to live my life again


              It's an existential analysis that explores the darker side of reincarnation.
              Or, it's a goofy punk rock song.

              It's good either way.

              But don't fear, your are my buddy and I would never force you to live your life again smile

                Most folks say they WILL celebrate because of family.
                I am actually driving to northern MI in the morning for thanksgiving with my family. Last time I did that was 1993. Usually I'm content to stay home, watch the Lions lose, and take a nap.

                If I get a chance, I'll pop on-line & say hello. Yes, they finally have the internets up there. lol

      You would HATE being my roommate. I'm on the top floor and I kill 5 or 6 spiders a week up here.

      There was a baby snake in the entrance way at work last week. It was cute. But I had to go around the building and use the loading dock entrance because I'm completely terrified of them. sad I couldn't even just step over it.

    I am not afraid of dying...I planned my funeral.

    I guess I've grown alot smile

      wyanjenposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      You've done more than grow. IMO. You've accepted, and taken control. You are in a position of strength, not fear. smile

      I don't even grab a tissue anymore, just grab & flush the buggers. (Of course I wash my hands LOL.) I secretly think they survive the flush and go on to live in a spider colony somewhere by the waste water facility.

      We'll hook lyrics up with an electric spider swatter with a nice loooong handle.

    cynide10posted 7 years ago

    My biggest fear is fear itself because to fear and be scared is to be un-confident about a situation, it is to be worried and feel threatened. Ultimately this fear is the loss of my confidence, to stand in a place of uncertainty knowing that their is nothing I can do.

    But what i certainly do not fear is losing my loved ones or dying for death is not the end. And failure why fear that if you fail oh well try again and if you succeed well done!

    It is a terrible thing, and I do fear it. Not only for myself but others also. I fear getting it and being placed somewhere not so nice and being mistreated and abused. It happens. God bless those who choose to take care of their loved one's until the end as my late mother-in-law did like Nancy Reagan.

      Courage is a response to fear.
