How do you deal with death?

The thought that death could be just like going into a dreamless sleep scares me deeply. There's nothing I fear more than this kind of death, knowing that there is no reason to be righteous or kind is depressing. I don't like thinking about death, so I don't deal with the thought of knowing that I will die. I don't deal with it I ignore it and repress it. If I truly didn't believe there was some sort of afterlife I don't know what I'd do, it would probably be bad though, or maybe I'd live every moment as though it were my last, and live exuberantly.

Let me elaborate on this, I fear death more than everything and ignore/repress thinking about it because how can anyone with a soul not be afraid of losing your girl friend, family, friends and never having anymore fun. How can you not fear the chance of having no more adventures, or loving anyone any longer?

To me, death is something to look forward to. If I die a slow death, everyone I know will be at my side, and I'd be knowing that some people would remember me even if it were only for my last living weeks.

It would probably be one of the high points of my life, which, as depressing as it sounds, gives me something to look forward to in my life, which is rare for me these days.

I guess the real question here is, how do you deal with life?

Because there's also never having to worry about anything or to feel any form of suffering like sickness, pain, hunger, greed, fear, anger, hate etc.

If.

If I don't, I won't ever find out. One of the perks of being dead.

Well actually, God can save those who are really faithful to him, and they will be saved and can live forever in a perfect world without violence or evil or suffering.

Get into an accident or contract some disease that requires a blood transfusion to give you any chance of surviving and tell me that being a Jehovah's Witness is still a good idea.

Anyway, death is just another part of life, no big deal - I'm not going to be around to worry about this sort of thing when I'm dead so why worry about it now?

To be honest I've given this some thinking in the past years but not I realise that it's a waste of time to think about it.I'll just enjoy life as long as I can.

Well, we all born to die.

The true meaning of this question is, if we lived everything that we really wanted.

I just hope when i die, i die fast without any kind of hard agony and with the feeling i had a really good life.
