I am extremely afraid of death. Just thinking about it gives me panic attacks. It's a really weird feeling knowing that every single person around me one day or another will perish and be replaced by someone else. The lack of a consciousness is what scares me the most.
I've gotten one chance to live and here I am. I will not see the world in a hundred, thousand, or even a million years, just this moment right now and that's it. Being a fedoratipper, my view on the subject is pretty grim, since I don't believe in an afterlife in heaven or in hell.
How do you view death, anons? Are there any ways that you try to cope with the idea? Have any of you made peace with such a thought?

Death, even if I have religious beliefs, is shouldn't be that feared. Of course, I really dangerous mistake in your life can quickly end you, but if you know how to avoid it and not suffer from anything that can cause death, it's fine. Death is also a way to end's someone's suffering or some other living organism, like a dog given some treatment to death because of how they can't live on. It may be our one chance here, but, it helps us want to do everything we want, even if it's bad to us or others, it still is a time limit that can make us more to make some meaning into what we do, because living forever is pretty much I see as worse than death, why live forever to see to the end and where it's nothing in the end of everything if you believe a big bang wouldn't happen again?
Death is something we should accept it will happen to us, and it's something we shouldn't fear too much of.

I started having these same feelings about a year and a half ago, shortly after my grandfather died. It made me so depressed and I started to view life in an entirely different way. It wasn't just the thought of non existence that scared me, although that was part of it, but also the exact opposite. The idea of living forever and ever also felt overwhelming. Even reincarnation, which I thought would be the best outcome, also started sounding horrible. Imagine if I was reincarnated as a gazelle or something and had to die a horrible death. I also thought about the idea of the universe resetting and having to live the exact same life over and over. Eventually, I came to the conclusion that every single possible after life sounded terrifying, and I started getting really depressed. I started becoming incredibly conscience of the fact I was getting older, and every day seemed to just slip by, as I inched closer to my inevitable demise. I just could not stop thinking about death all day every day. I actually for the first time started considering suicide, just to get it over with.
Nothing felt real anymore. Everything just felt pointless.
I tried coping by watching TedTalks about how you shouldn't fear death, about out of body experiences, and I even started looking into Aubrey de Grey and living forever. However, the thoughts just kept coming back.
In the end though, I just kinda got over it. It's kind of a pointless thing to worry about. I'm just concerned with living life to the fullest.
How old are you and how long have you had these feelings?

I'm not a fan of your ideology, anon. I don't think that a quick death outweighs an entire lifespan. Best case scenario from my point of view would be that instead of dying and never returning to this world, people could take very long breaks, very long sleep.

I'm 25 but I've had these feelings for years and years now. I align more with your point of view, there's nothing I can currently do about death, so I have been attempting to fill my life up with memorable events, even if those events likely are seen as small or insignificant by others.

I worded it wrong, it's "Of course, really dangerous mistake in your life can quickly end you, but if you know how to avoid it and not suffer from dealing with anything that is relating to death from someone else, it's fine."
More like death is normal, no need to fear it.

Heavily agree on the "It's kind of a pointless thing to worry about. I'm just concerned with living life to the fullest."
Pretty much my whole claim.

work hard, help people, and be healthy
