We all die someday. What does it matter if we die now or later, if in the end the result is inevitable?

This. In the end, we're dead. It's not like we'll be sitting around reflecting on what we should have or should not have done.

Now, if I could reflect on my life after I died, I wouldn't feel very good nor very bad about my life. I've done some fun things and I've done a lot of boring and depressing things -- you know, like most people's lives. I would be disappointed that I didn't conquer the world though.

I have wasted a perfectly good life. Was all the fear, all the anxiety, all the depression, truly worth it? Are you happy now that it's finally over? I lived for no one and died for nothing. FML. :(

Yes, that is exactly how I would feel. And it truly scares me. :afr

I would feel content, my family and close friends, and most of all my children would know that I loved them more than anything.

You live for no-one and died for nothing? According to who? The will of society? We do not need to live for anyone or anything in this world. That is simply a concept instilled in our minds as we are raised by society.

What if society didn't exist? Would life be "pointless"? Other creatures and animals besides humans simply exist for the sake of existing. I believe that we do not need any purpose or reason for living our lives. We simply live. We are born with the blank slate, but we are compelled by others to conform to the mindset of society as we are raised. We can follow society, or we can choose to try and live the blank slate way of simply existing without any reason or purpose. There is no shame in either one.

I would happily take death the now, I am not really doing anything significant with my life so I wouldn't mind if I died today, and I would feel that my life would have been wasted, but at the same time I think that nothing we do in life really matters anyway so it doesn't really bother me that I am wasting my life.

Haha, I have such a sh1t attitude.

I would be glad it was over...

...I do not understand why people collectively worry about having "wasted their lives" - the dead do not have any opportunity to constantly mull over such things, being, as they are, dead. You cannot experience regret when you do not exist, and besides, in the grand scheme of things, a human life is a very short and insignificant thing.

If I died right now my life would be unfulfilled. I have so many things I wish to do and accomplish. I doubt an ordinary healthy human lifespan is enough time.

Uh, rather depressed I think. My life? Unremarkable, insignificant, and largely void of any meaningful relationships outside of my parents. Wonderful stuff.

Pretty crappy, I know I could have done better. I have been making some changes lately so maybe I'll be happier about it at some point in my life.

So you are saying that it doesn't matter if you die in an hour or in a year because we will all die someday anyways? Yes death is inevitable, and its an important fact of life. But it is what you do in your life that counts, right or no?

If I were to die, I would be more worried about what would happen next instead of dwell on the past, especially a past that I won't be able to do anything about. And if my life was going the best it could possibly be going, I bet I would still be bummed out because I kinda just lost everything. So death is pretty much a loss either way you look at it.

My answer is: I am not afraid of dying. i'm afraid of not really living.
