The fact that we all die, and we all die of some sickness usually, means that eventually we will all likely get something, so my mind always goes to that....and I am so afraid of dying young and leaving my daughter and wife. I have these nightmare thoughts of my daughter forgetting about me! I am trying to stay away from anymore googling. But its hard to avoid TV and radio reminders. I wish I could just be carefree about this HA. It is mentally and emotionally exhausting and draining. I just so much want to live to see my daughter become an adult. Its all I really want.
Yes, we are all going to die through illness, horrible accident, etc. & I'm not afraid to die anymore.
Sad_Dad, what you pointed out so eloquently, is my greatest fear & worry: leaving my children, spouse, & the rest of my family behind. I was most attached to, and loved my dad the most...and he was the one who died when I was 17. I tried CPR but his massive heart attack took him from me.
. However, I will never forget him as he spent many hours each week with me playing b'ball, tennis, golf; going to football games, and just talking... :). Not to mention being the best role model as far as spiritual, educational, moral, etc.
Lesson learned: try as hard as I can to love, teach, and enjoy my children...this is easier said than done some days I know, but I need to turn off the google, the television, the radio as those ads are too invasive now...It's almost as if they are planted to play on our fears & "drum" business up for medical/big pharmaceutical...
My wish is for us all to focus on the present & our precious gifts.
Peace, happiness & health to all !
