Affirmations for Those Who Fear Death
How to come to terms with the concept of death.
Everyone, whether old, young, rich, or poor, will be handed the same fate one day; death. This is simply how the cookie crumbles. Don't feel bad, you will experience a plethora of the beauties life has to offer you before then.
Death technically doesn't affect you
While you're alive, you're not dead; when you are dead, you aren't conscious. Therefore, death doesn't actually affect you. This is something I learned from the works of the philosopher Epicurus. I highly recommend looking into his techings if your mind is succeptable to anxiety.
Don't let your fear of the end taint your life
If you spend your life worrying about death, you will have wasted the very thing you were afraid of losing. In worrying about something that is not presently happening, you are subjecting yourself to worry twice; once prematurely, and once while you are actually in the throws of the situation. Don't punish yourself twice! Save your feelings about death for when it's on your doordstep.
Lean into your spiritual beliefs
If you are religious or subscribe to some kind of spiritual practice, you likely have resources that can remove some of the mystery surrounding what happens after death. Lean into those! I may not know you personally, but I know you probably lead your life with good intentions. I'd like to believe that wherever you end up after your time on earth, your goodness will come back to you tenfold.
