If you knew exactly how you died, would you tell your family and friends to make peace with them, cut all connections so you won't be missed

or tell no one and allow them to deal with it in their own manner?

I like the natural way better.

With me I'd just rather not be remembered at all, too many mistakes for this life. Rather them not remember who I was.

I would tell them nothing. I would do my best to make peace with them without them knowing and let them deal the way they are suppose to.

At least they'll know how you felt.

Actually I don't have to make peace. I learned long ago to make peace early on. I may not agree with some of their decisions, but it is their life not mine. They know I love them and they know I love them. I could die to morrow an have no regrets.

Wish the same could be said for me, congratulations on no regrets.

I personally would tell them I am going to die, blatantly, like it was no big deal. And just run it off as being casual.

You'd just accept it like that?
Report as
Yes, I cannot escape death, and therefore, would not try. Death is something that comes for us all, and the only way for others to be at peace with your death, is if you are as well.

I know more then most about how death affects people but even I couldn't be calm about telling friends and family I'm going to die.

Then apparently you haven't been dead before, having been legally dead for about ten minutes, I have a bit of an experience. Most say it is traumatizing, but when you have nothing to regret, or have left anything un-finished. Then there is nothing you really need to worry about in death... Hah, funny, this coming from a 16 year old, isn't that right?
Report as
Coming from a 16 year old, that's really deep. I have been dead, when I was born the cord was wrapped around my neck and I was dead for 4 1/2 minutes but I can offer no experience of that. Though during this time, I'd have many things to regret.

Well, you've been dead in the past. That is something we have in common, but mine is much more recent. I was shot in the chest, my rib-cage stopped the bullet, but the trauma and sock signals from the senses coursing through my body, shut-down my heart. Friend, just forget the past. Yesterday; is History. Tomarrow; Is a mystery. But today; is a gift, that is why it is called the present. Reconsile your past, leave behind all regrets. Your future is diligent to your past, but your past is what shapes your future.
