The fear of death is a recurring theme in all of us.
It’s an aspect of human nature, we all experience it, and it’s a major reason why we want to live a life of purpose.
We all have it in us, and as we get older and experience more of our life, it becomes easier to see and experience the fear of the unknown.
Here are 5 ways to live your life with less fear of dying.
Know that it’s not your fault You may feel like your life is in a constant state of change, but it’s really not.
It really isn’t.
When you’re in your early 20s, you have a hard time understanding what it means to be alive.
You’re going through a lot of changes in your life, you’ve been through a bunch of things, you know how to cope with them.
All of that happens within a finite period of time, so the only thing you really need to worry about is what comes next.
You can’t expect to live forever.
You just need to make sure that you’re living your life in a way that doesn’t lead to regret.
Know what you can control Know what your limitations are.
When I was younger, I would just do what I could to avoid the fear.
It was really hard, but eventually I got over it and I realized that I could be a lot more aware of how my actions affect other people.
I would always ask my friends, “What do you think about me being afraid?”
If they responded by saying, “I don’t know,” I knew that I was letting them down.
Don’t expect someone to take your death seriously It’s easy to be a little bit surprised when someone doesn’t seem to take death seriously.
For some, it’s understandable that they don’t want to talk about it.
It can be really hard to accept that someone else doesn’t have the same level of fear as you.
But it’s also important to understand that not everyone has the same amount of fear.
Everyone has different levels of fear, and the best way to work through those differences is to make your life a little easier.
If you’re not able to talk openly about your fears, you’re probably not being honest about your life at all.
Have some compassion for the people around you If someone asks you about your fear, don’t just take it personally.
Just ask them why they’re scared and be a good listener.
They may feel uncomfortable asking that, but the conversation can go a long way toward building a relationship with your fears.
You’ll never be able to change your life if you don’t listen to the other person, so it’s important to listen to what they have to say.
Don the mask for a little while Before you start your journey, make sure you get some support from others.
It may feel good to make fun of yourself, but if someone does that, they’re only perpetuating their fear.
Take a moment to really let go of that.
I remember talking to a friend about the experience when I realized I was so afraid of death.
She had to say, “It’s okay, you don ‘t have to be scared.”
It’s a lot to take in, but you need to let go.
That’s the first step to moving forward.
When we stop trying to control what’s going on in our lives, we’ll be able go on to live happier and happier lives, and I hope that we can all find some comfort in knowing that we have each other and we are all in this together.
