I keep thinking about death.

(Just a little side note, no i am not in any way suicidal, incase people might take it the wrong way)

Back to what I was saying. For about 4 days now when I go to lay in my bed at night I start thinking about death, I'm a person who believes there is a god and a I believe there is a heaven and a hell. so I keep thinking to myself have I lead a good life?

and basically just getting scared/worried about death and then I start to cry.

I don't want to keep thinking about it. I don't know what to do.

It's not bad to the point where I need to go and see someone about it I just want these weird/uncomfortable thoughts to go.

Hi, this bothered me too until I visited tentmaker.org and learned the truth about “hell.” Mortality is an overwhelming thought to any human, we have a really hard time coming to terms with it. This is normal. I went through a period of a couple months where mortality really sent me into a panic and tears. I talk about it with a therapist and also am on Lexparo. These have both helped. I also have my spirituality straightened out now as I mentioned above.

I have been the same way and so what I have been doing is repeating this mantra

I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

and if the thoughts keep coming I just say Stop Stop Stop over and over and just push them away. It is very hard trust me I know but just take it one day at a time and when those thoughts come tell them to stop and just pray and relax.

Hello, sorry about your thoughts and condition you are going through. I have faced the same situation in the past, and have learners that these thoughts do nothing without wasting your valuable time.

Try to meet your close friends and spend more time in praying, participating in physical activities.

Most important part is to understand the problem completely so that you get the right solution.

I have social anxiety and currently reading a book on it. I am sure that I will be ok soon.

You need to set your own goals and follow the right strategy to achieve them... This group is the right place to get help related to mental health conditions...

Hope this will help you

I am Catholic and so I might encourage you to talk to a Catholic Priest.

You may also be experiencing symptoms of depression, which are best supported in counseling. I am really at my best when I am doing both - living my Catholic religion and in weekly counseling.

Catholics go to confession because we know we try but fail so often to lead the good life that we want to. We feel sorrow for these failings, but it's never about guilt and shame. Guilt and shame are best dealt with by a qualified therapist.

I applaud your courage for posting what is really going on within, and I trust that you will grow through this time of trial.
