Why am i so paranoid about death?

Question by : Why am i so paranoid about death?
My uncle just recently died (yesterday) and now i’m really worried about my dad. He’s the same age as my uncle (who died from pancreatic cancer) and my dad smokes a lot. I’ve asked him to stop multiple times and he has tried it’s just he’s so addicted. I know he isn’t happy with his life and i’ve tried but i can’t help whatsoever. It’s hard for me because i’ve never had someone die around me before and now im really scared my dad will die because he smokes so much! Please help me calm down i’m really worried.

sweetie that’s what happens whenever some one in the family or even just a friend passes away people start to worry about your close family or yourself dying that is what happened when my brother passed away everyone in the house was worried about people leaving convinced that they might not come back … so good luck and i am sorry for your loss

    First of all you need to remember that it is perfectly natural to worry about your father. Second, a recent death has a wider affect on people than most realize. Considering the situation you are in right now I’d say I’m not surprised by your fear.
    You see the fear of death whether it’s your death, or the death of a loved one is actually the fear of the unknown. Mankind has always feared what it could not understand. The philosopher Socrates had a great way of summing this up. He was in prison awaiting his execution ( he would later be given the choice of actual execution, or drinking hemlock.) Anyway he told his students who wanted him to escape the following. “The fear of death is often a pretense of wisdom, but it is not true wisdom. No one knows whether death, which men in their fear apprehend to be the greatest of evil. May not in fact be the greatest of good.”

    you’re just a bit shocked cause of your uncle’s death.. try doing something fun to take your mind off it, and don’t worry.. it’ll pass.
