Overcome Fear of Death and Live More

The fear that someday I will die comes stronger when we cling to life. Wanting to live more is something that pushes us in well of fear, don’t fear deaths but a life unlived because you don’t have to live forever you just have to “live”.


“He who doesn’t fear death only dies once.” Says Giovanni Falcone

Concede your fear

Once you admit to you fear only than you can combat with it, the thing you can do is call out your fear and let it go. You fear will hold you back from living life with peace unless you doesn’t fight it and let it slip out of your mind.

“For to fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise without really being wise, for it is to think that we know what we do not know. For no one knows whether death may not be the greatest good that can happen to man.” ― Plato, Apology

Think logically

Are you the first person who will die? Absolutely not, the millions of people were born and died before and will die, as whoever came to life shall die one day or another.

“Every soul will taste death” ― Al Quran

Thinking logically with brave heart can help you fight with your fear and make your life worth living.

“She was like a landscape you see from the train, and you want to stop just there.” ― Graham Greene

There can’t be any better example of life than this, life is really like a landscape and we can’t stop death, so why fear and not live until it actually happens.

Give more thought to living than dying…

“When we face our fear of death
and slow down our busy lives,
we come to realize our relationships are precious,
a part of life’s foundation.
Knowing this fact helps us to understand
that death’s true purpose is to teach us how to live.” ― Molly Friedenfeld

Life and death are equally significant aspects of the Universe. Thinking about one only can make you miserable, if you worry about death you are not going to live a fulfilling life, the thoughts like, “I will die, how will my family survive?”, “what if die today?”. “What will happen to me after death?” all these questions are not leading you to anywhere but if you think about how you can make your life better, how you can make your after life better can actually make you mentally, physically, spiritually strong and happy.

Accept the reality of life

“So let not this present life deceive you.” Quran (Surah Fatir, Verse 5)

Life and death are like a cycle, the one who is born today will die someday. As soon as you accept this your fear will fade away and then you will start living a real life.

“Say: the Angel of Death who is given charge of you shall cause you to die, and then to your Lord you shall be brought back.” Holy Quran – 32:11
