How can you go from wanting to die and planning out how to kill yourself to being completely petrefied of death and dying and the afterlife? :confused:

At one point I wanted to commit suicide. But now I'm completely terrified of death. How can you go from wanting to die, to being completely afraid of death? How do you go from one extreme to the other?

It all depends on the things that are going on in your life... there must be somethign that held you back right? someone or something you love with all your heart and would never want to leave or hurt it in anyway... well when you are feeling like you want to die you start to think... you think alot... I have gone through this a thousand times... yet it always my little girl and my boyfriend that hold me back... I want to die because things are so bad... yet I love my little girl and my boyfriend so much... I dont want to leave them alone... I dont know if you understand me or if i just sound stupid but this is what i feel...

I understand what you're saying. I think the only thing that kept me alive was the fear of what God does to ppl who commit suicide. I never thought of other's in my life or how my death would affect them. Just what would happen to me by taking my own life.

you need to get more sleep. that way you'll be better able to see through the lies you subconsciously tell yourself.

how will sleep help that? If anything I would think that subconscious thought would intensify during sleep when the mind is off guard.

on the contrary, Sleep and dreaming is what helps us process the info stored in our brains. It's when links are formed between events, and helps us sort out data. Good sleep is also one of the key factors involved in keeping us mentally healthy. But don't believe me, do some research on it.

I agree, sleep helps me...I got those recurring thoughts but I tend to sleep a long time to get over with it...to me it's like meditating the deep thoughts of dreams to find a more subconcious way of finding the answer

oh and also I don't want to be reincarnated as some mosquito, then a cat, then a raccoon
don't ask me how i know that order, but i always had a feeling it would be a mosquito first

I believe dog is next, but don't know about the other two...I'm leaning towards a snake, and then a bird of some sort

I believe in god and heaven, but sometimes I theorize that when someone dies, another is born...and it doesn't have to be human to human, it can be any form.....

"everytime u hear of dozens of babies born, someone just stepped on a pile of ants"
I think too much.....don't be a jackass and kill urself, cause u might end up one in the next life

ha, I have no mom, I can at least say that cause my family hates her for leaving us

but I have cousins in texas and louisiana that I'm very close too, we talk on aim, emails and just stay in touch with each other, it was my whole plan to never lose contact with each other

neway they said the same thing to me...and the guilt trip just hits hard from hearing them say, "think of how we'll feel if u went suicidal...I'd follow more likely"

I never wanted to drag others into it my problems, just think of those kinds of ppl

You wanted to die because of some emotional time...nobody loves me, im ugly, waaaa, poor me. Then you get over it and you love life.

Humans are fickle. We go from wanting hot tea to cold tea in the span of days, not too long on a universal scale.

The trauma of our subconscious can play tricks. When a traumatic event happens in your conscious(most times you won't even know it happened) it will alter your brain cells without you even knowing anything about it, and then, now you're afraid of once what you once praised.

I would be heartbroken if you killed yourself. Mainly because there are few ppl out here to hold a semi intellectual conversation with. Plus, then you would like go to pergatory for all eternity with the rest of the pansies. Not a happy place to be.
