Should be sad time?

2 years, 2 months ago

Hello i amm new to this website… But i joined to ask a simple question. How many people believe that dying or death is a sad thing? Why? Do you think that we can begin to see it as less of a sad occurrence but rather, just another part of life? Just because we do not have a pulse by breath. Do we “see a light.”? Please enlighten me.

@joel310, I think the thing we fear about death is the finality of it. After someone has passed that is it, we can no longer use that person emotionally, physically, or intellectually. I don’t think you should ever feel sorry for the dead, but the legacy of their death rather, the family members, the responsibilities they leave behind, etc. For everything they were worth has now disappeared leaving an emotional gap for those dependant on them. That is the sad side of death.

Death is just death. It happens. No sense in hating it or being afraid.

That’s just how the world works, things die. People die.

Death is just a part of life. The end of it, but everything good has an end. Death is not a sad thing, it’s just death.

I don’t wanna die, but I don’t think death is a sad thing, and I’m not afraid of it or angry about it.

Let go, stop taking things so seriously. It all means nothing.
