Few people can honestly claim they don’t have fear of dying. This is particularly true with anxiety sufferers. It is common for anxiety sufferers to show their fear of death because this is one of the most common thoughts which causes this kind of condition. Fear of death is one of the primordial fears and living with anxiety is very much living in fear - fear that something (anything) may go wrong, fear that something bad will happen, fear that death is waiting just around the corner.
If you are having trouble dealing with your anxiety and your fear of death seems to be getting obsessive, you should know there are strategies you can follow to minimize your discomfort. In this case, I would recommend learning meditation and practicing it regularly. Meditation has been utilized vigorously and proven itself to be effective in alleviating negative ideations and thoughts such as fear of dying.
There’s a certain wisdom that can be attained through meditation, which will help you realize how death is a vital part of life. Through meditation, you will realize and see that it is fear itself and not death that you should be afraid of. Fear is a product of anxiety, and by living with prolonged anxiety your enjoyment of life is so clouded that you must feel akin to being a walking dead. That is really what anxiety sufferers feel - living dead, but we can stop do something about it.
Help yourself: stop yourself from being enslaved by fear. The anxiety you feel may not trigger an exaggerated fear of death- but what is the point? There is no point in being preoccupied in death when you are still alive. Well, being a slave of anxiety means you are not living life fully. If your are already determined to change your old ways, do not wait and start now. Because while you are spending your life suffering from fear, you are already losing the beauty life brings.
Death is final. We will all perish and no one can run from it. There is really no point in breaking away from death. We should not be fearful about death, instead, we should live life to the fullest and do the things we love and want. If we enjoy life, we would not regret anything because we can say to ourselves that we did not waste our lives by being afraid of death. Appreciating life and it’s beauty is the key in alleviating our anxieties and fears about death. In that way, we are somehow prepared to face the future without any sign of fear and anxiety.
