Why do we fear death so much? Is it the Death? Or the Fear?  Lately I’ve been thinking about fear just as a general concept, void of trauma or emotion. What is fear exactly? Of course, there are many answers, I’ve heard a lot of them. I liked the above explanation.

Fear seems so tightly joined with death. In our culture, think of death, think of fear. It’s almost a rule.

Lately I’ve wondered what do we lose, if anything, being in denial about death, fearing death. Does our fear cost us anything? Life? Love?

I think the answer might be yes, we lose something. We should know what we lose or gain fearing death before we decide denial is more valuable or easier.

Why fear death?
