I'm afraid of death. Not my own, really, but the death of those I love. I'm a Chrisitian, and I know that earthly goodbyes are only temporary. I believe in Heaven, and I believe we'll see our loved ones again, but there are so many people I can't imagine life without. The thought of going through the rest of my earthly life without them is terrifying.
I'm twenty-eight years old, and all four of my grandparents are still living--two of them are in good health, and the other two are in fair health when you consider their ages. I know I am extremely blessed. The older they get, the more afraid I become of losing them. I don't like to think about losing my parents, brother, or friends. And I can't even fathom life without Bradley or Aniston. I can cause myself to have a full-blown panic attack just thinking about it.
I realize that death is a part of life. It's just a part I'd rather not dwell on.
