Are you afraid to die and think of it often?
I grew up attending Christian church of my own will. My parents are not the slightest bit religious. I am no longer a Christian, but now I’m uncertain of what it means to die. I think about it and fear it quite often.I always have been afraid of what happens when I die, ever since childhood. But back then, I was eased somewhat by knowing I was a “saved” soul. I still have the fear that was instilled in me from church, but it’s worse now because I don’t have the crutch of being saved by divinity to ensure a safe and happy afterlife in heaven. It terrifies me, and I dream often about the end of the world.
Then I read stuff like this and think, “Holy crap!” Because then it’s not just me who is dying, but my family, too. My tiny son and husband… I am quite literally starting to plan for this cosmic attack because I’m so terrified.
Anybody share this?
