However, it's not necessarily the "dying" part that scares me.
It's the finality of it.
The fact that, after that last breath, nothing will come after it.
Nothing is in your control anymore, and people will move on.
I don't think people are afraid of death. Not really, anyway.
People are afraid of losing control.
Losing the ability to foresee and follow through.
Once you've died, that's it.
There's no more.
The world you've created is literally out of your hands.
And that is a scary thought.
Thanks, Death of a Salesman.
