instead of fixating on the inavaidable, which death is, instead studying on that last frame of life, you should focus on the whole movie before that, and if you do, you'll see that whatever hurted you in the past, and whatever comes to you in the end will be worth that movie called lived my life.
and not only will that in between time be a beautifull life, it will also be an inspiration to your friends, nephews, nieces, kids and wife, meaning in body you'll end one day, but in thoughts you'll might not ever die.
think about the life of Newton, Picasso, Abraham Lincoln. you're life will only mean as little as you give it to be.

Investing in burial plans and at the end of the day, watch all Final Destination Movies in one sitting while relaxing on my comfy recliner eating junk food and drinking gatorade. Just chill and enjoy life.

Seeing all these replies just make me laugh by making me remember how my psychiatrist gave me her approval of "game over-ing" my life if 18 years from now I'm in the same situation as I currently am today

Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.

-The Tempest, Shakespeare

Death is inevitable. Therefore, I don’t care about it. I don’t allow myself to have feelings about things I have no control over. Besides, there’s no point in worrying about it. Living a life consumed by fear of death isn’t living.

Death can happen anytime, walking on the street and being hit by a vehicle, aneurysm, stoke, illness, murdered, earth quake, flood, nuclear, etc.
if I had to worry every minute and look around to prevent it to happen, I wouldn't live or do anything. you can't look over your shoulder to see if Stoke is following you.

Death doesn't frighten me, I know it'll just happen, any time. I don't worry.
What I wouldn't want, is suffer and being forbidden to die, or being a veggie connected to breath tube... that's a hell of a prison...

I twist Death in the nutsack and punch him in the penis. Then I say fuck you death and everything you have done.

Accept it and move on.
I'm not gonna spend my time on worrying about something that will happen no matter what.
Instead I'm gonna play so many fuckin' video games, shit's gonna be awesome.

Rick Sanchez has a great outlook on death. I love his Nihilism, and I feel the same way he does.

Coping with my own death is easy peasy, because I'll never actually have to do it. As long as I exist, by definition I'm alive. And when Death lays its bony fingers upon my shoulder, that exact instant I won't exist anymore and won't have to deal with "being dead". Nobody is actually "being dead", either you're being or you're dead. Of course I'm afraid of dying, but I'm
also afraid of getting shots and drawing blood. I know it's not dangerous or painful and will be over in a second, but the irrational part of my brain just hates the idea of going through it. Ultimately, you rise above your fears. They're trivial. Just a little pinprick and you're done.

Now, dealing with other people's deaths - that's really hard. I haven't really found any sort of protocol to deal with it. You just grit your teeth, carry on and give it time. Grief is horrible.

I died 2 years ago. My heart has been broken when my niece was taken away at 17. I have not seen my kids since. I have left my trade ,let go of my car, almost everything I own, became vegetarian and I am creating a family business so no one has to hustle because I think that what killed her. We in Canada have way more than we need there is no reason not to share. I live in the best place in the world we have unlimited drinking water, wood and are mostly protected from apocalypse(anyways where I live)?!?! What else do you need? Ah unlimited wifi too lol!

I used to not exist for a really long time, wasn't scary or hard to deal with at all. Once it happens none of what worries you no longer matters.
