It's a waste of time to even think about it. Sure if you've got some time it's cool to get high and ponder the universe and what happens when we die, but at the end of the day, nobody has any fucking clue and there is nothing you can do about it anyway.
If we die and something awaits us on the other side (afterlife, omnipotence, reincarnation on another planet, etc.) well that's pretty cool huh?
If we die and our consciousness is literally gone forever? Who cares. We were already dead for an infinite amount of years before we lived, and that wasn't so bad was it?
Or maybe we are born into the age where they will bio engineer cells to last forever or upload our consciousness into some kind of digital database? Who the fuck knows.
Don't worry about it. Worry about this life and what you can change and what you can learn here. Live life like it's the only one you've got; but hey, who really knows if that's the case?

No, not exactly. I think more about the future of our species and us wiping ourselves out than what my own death would be like. The actual experience is unknowable, so I don't get hung up on the feelings of what it would be. That being said, I think it's useful to sometimes use it as a thought experiment to assess your life, and consider the question of: if right now you were on your deathbed, would you be satisfied with your life or would you have any regrets?
I think the worst part is the loved ones you leave behind, they're the ones that suffer. So the reality of death must surely be to inspire a life well lived.

If you consider ending your life; you should first try to consider, why is it worth ending?
What is so bad about life? What is so great about death?
You're very qualified to speak about life, seeing as though you've made it to 21 - but you're very unqualified to speak about death, seeing as though you've never been dead.
You should try to analyze your situation from both perspectives, e.g.:
1) Why is life worth living?
2) Why is it worth dying?
The reason why life is not worth living should be strongly tied to why it is worth dying. Do you have any specific reason to desire death?
Have you been crippled, have you been blinded, have you become paralyzed?
Will dying end your suffering?
If you can't find any reason why you want to die, you certainly have no business not wanting to live! You don't need a specific desire to live, that is built into us (defect in some) - self-preservation will take care of the mere existence of our body. Whether or not you find a meaning in life is wholly up to you!
What are your hobbies, what do you like to do? What would you like to change? What is possible for you to change?
Consider this for a second, there are only three things in life worth paying attention to. i) are the things over which you have complete control; your goals and ambitions.
ii) are the things you have completely no control over; the goals and ambitions of others
iii) are the things you have partial control over; like your outlook on events. Lets take a game of tennis as an example: a) you want to win the match, or b) you want to play your best. Which choice will give you the best outcome? You guessed it, b! When you manage your expectations you also manage your desires. If you desire to play your best game, but lost, you are faced with the fact that you're not the best (which is a tough, but necessary lesson) - this should also fuel your desire to improve.
So, by only focusing on your own goals and ambitions, and by accepting reasonable things like doing your best, you've narrowed your worries down to the list of yourself.
Now it is only up to you to find goals, ambitions, and aspirations worth living for, and living up to! Take a long hard look at yourself, get started with improving your physique, eating right, reading books - just find a purpose.
I was thinking the other night not so much about death, but about how we actually exist.
When you're in bed at night, and you really start to think how we exist, about how the world exists, the universe, the idea of time, it totally boggles your mind. It was actually so overwhelming that I had to stop thinking about it haha.
It's just so insane. Even if God exists, you always ask the question, who created God? It goes on and on. You only get the overwhelming feeling when you really really start to think about it (which maybe some people just aren't capable of).
alright. So I was scared about death. A lot. I tink about dying everyday, and about not wasting time -not in the sense of being "productive", but rather, about "enjoying" both in an hedonistic and "mystical" sense-. A couuple weeks ago I read something in regards to life and its development that Hegel wrote.
He basically said that life has its own tempos, and that when a man is young, his life is developing, and while growing he matures and accepts his own maduration.
So don't be afraid. Enjoy this state of opennes in regards to your existence, the fact of being thrown in the open. Thinking of death and being aware of it is -or should be- a liberating experience. Because in the end, only death makes things real: when you are wondering about talking to that girl, just do it, because eventually you'll be dead and she'll be too, and what would this have mattered. Am I making sense? I'd be able to articulate this more thoroughly in spanish; it's hard for me to do it in english,.
So, tl;dr: 1. you're young, life has it's own tempos. Don't rush, enjoy life, the sun, the wind, the women. 2. Only death makes things real -only being aware of death you can really assess the value of acting, of kissing a girl, playing with a child, swimming in the sea-.
What’s it gonna be like, dying? To go to sleep and never, never, never wake up.
Well, a lot of things it’s not gonna be like. It’s not going to be like being buried alive. It’s not going to be like being in the darkness forever.
I tell you what — it’s going to be as if you never had existed at all. Not only you, but everything else as well. That just there was never anything, there’s no one to regret it — and there’s no problem.
Well, think about that for a while — it’s kind of a weird feeling when you really think about it, when you really imagine.
Practice meditation not for all the healthy benefits but also, some people call it *the preparation for death* because you are practicing being nothing.
I used to think about death a lot. It used to keep me up at night. In the last year I haven't been sidetracked by thoughts of death at all, even when trying to fall asleep.
It seems if you have nothing to lose, you think about death. If you have a lot to lose, you think about death. If you're in the early stages of moving forward with your life, not as much thinking about death.
I think about it often. I feel like thinking about death or suicide coincides with being unhappy. As you all have said when you're happy and have a lot of good things going on, that's what you typically think about and day dream about,happy fun things. When your depressed anxious and disappointed you think about crying and negativity vs. laughing and joy.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
