I want everyone I love to live forever and never die.

Is that naive?
Is it unrealistic?
Is it bad for me?
Sometimes, yes.
But I can't change it. I have tried.
I worry so much for those I care about even if I don't talk about it. I haven't made peace with death. Sometimes I lose myself in loving them, and making the best of our time together.
And sometimes I lose myself in the grief and the sadness of its temporary nature that requires us to employ our imaginative linguistic justifications and work-arounds to create meaning out of loss.

I choose to believe we are born with an expiry date and that we and those we love have to die in order to make room on the planet for those that have yet to be born.

Only problem is I've lost so many people in my lifetime, I've got to the point I don't feel I want friends because they're just gonna die and I'm fed up with missing dead people.

I'm still holding out hope that aging will effectively be cured within my lifetimeeeeeeee

But I sorta hope that I'm the only one in my life who gets to use it. Everyone else can die, that's alright.

I feel there has to be a middle course. Not trying to deny what one can only see as the truth, and yet living life as best we can. I was brought up in an atmosphere of guilt backed up by religion. No child should be made to believe that their sins were responsible for each thorn being hammered into Christ's head . I reject that now as unhealthy and hypocritical. We have to demand the freedom to enjoy sexuality while helping those we love and respecting all.
While I am perfectly ok with knowledge that I will die. I hate the suffering around death. As much as my family didn’t get along, the suffering they experienced was inexcusable.

I am also at peace with ending my own life if faced with a diagnosis that will destroy the quality of life I have left.

Now is all we have. I wish I had a few more really great now’s left. I probably won’t get around to every place and every person in the world that I want to meet.

That's deep Miram... Save yourself lots of wrinkles on your forehead and just smile at the people you love.... wrinkles on you cheeks from smiling will help people remember you for thinking well of them.
Don't forget one important thing: Your life is your life..... you shouldn't try to make someone else's life your own by worrying about them.

I've made peace with the idea that we all die at some point...but I still have a problem dealing with the deaths of friends and family, and I fear the eventuality of my own death.

@DragonFruit Same for me. I struggled with suicide ideation so I haven't exactly been attached to life.
Love you Mira ❤

@PiecingBabyFaceTogether I love you too M 💗

@pillowprincess Not really fond of her.
There's something about these words tho 🤗
Miram · 31-35, F
I understand the intention. Your intention.

Hers is as questionable as her behaviors.

@Miram What Cool Things Will I do when I become A,Deity
Miram · 31-35, F
@JohnOinger I have no idea who that is. But either way my partner put me into some sort of space suit. I can't get out of it.

For myself - I want to die like my Grandpa - peacefully in my sleep, not screaming and crying like those other people in his car.
originnone · 61-69, M
then I'm glad you don't love me.

@Miram The idea of wanting to live forever isn't a good one to me.
Miram · 31-35, F
That's alright.
It exists in my brain not yours so it has no bearing on your own life.
What I think or don't think in relation to grief doesn't have to affect you
originnone · 61-69, M
@Miram well said
