I found this and this to be extremely relevant. I don't know if there is a general solution to being happy, and I'm not entirely sure how I went from depressed to reasonably happy. However, I do think some particular solutions exist.

Because of past experiences, I really don't like the medication approach and I'm glad I could avoid it. But, I'm only a sample of 1 and I can't make generalizations about whether or not professional/medical help is a good idea for someone. I tend to think it's an impermanent solution and that it's more valuable to learn how to make those internal changes on your own. Maybe though, it's more dependent on brain chemistry than I realize and I'm just lucky. It could be that my happiness is a fluke and I don't actually have very much control over how I feel.

The things you want may indeed be unattainable. Some of the things I want may be unattainable. Some of them definitely are.

This is a bit of a tangent, but it's necessary for dealing with seemingly unattainable things. It's useful to think of your self as two parts: a teller and a doer. Long story short, the teller is stupid and needs to shut its mouth. The doer can handle things just fine. This book (full pdf here) elaborates on this idea really well. It's not actually about tennis, of course. Basically, the teller is the one saying things are unattainable or that a social situation has gone to shit, and it's wrong a lot of the time. Even when it's right, stuff is meaningless anyways, so it doesn't cost much to try.

I don't blame you for not wanting to talk about work/family. That stuff might be interesting to the person doing it, but it's kind of lame to hear about. Hobbies work really well for the socialization front. Granted, getting into a hobby requires that you want to do it. I don't really have any extra advice on that. Once you have hobbies though, they're great. My main thing that I do now is really just a hobby taken to the extreme. Talking to people who share the hobby is fun because you can get that "I know, right?!" feeling.

Wanting to do stuff in the first place is the hardest part, or at least it was for me. I can't really give any concrete advice on it. One thing I did was find channels on Youtube where someone uploads on a daily or bi-daily basis and pretend they were my friend. It's kind of pitiful, but I felt better after a while. It probably won't be your cup of tea, but I really like this guy. I found web comics and blogs to also be good in that regard, but they're some special sauce to human faces and voices. The closer it is to an actual conversation the better. I think setting comically low goals and slowly working up to bigger ones also helps.

It was cool that you reached out. Ernest Becker wrote a book that might help:

The Denial of Death

Winner of the Pulitzer prize in 1974 and the culmination of a life's work, The Denial of Death is Ernest Becker's brilliant and impassioned answer to the "why" of human existence. In bold contrast to the predominant Freudian school of thought, Becker tackles the problem of the vital lie -- man's refusal to acknowledge his own mortality. In doing so, he sheds new light on the nature of humanity and issues a call to life and its living that still resonates more than twenty years after its writing.

I understand your fears, most people share them. To start, I think it’s really great that you’re thinking about these things and asking these questions. I’m sorry it causes you anxiety but I’m happy to see you want to work on these fears!

What I suggest is the YouTube channel of a very funny, and cool, mortician:

She answers questions about death, discusses death, everything about death. Some videos are serious, most are funny, all are educational.

I am not fully comfortable with death. I think it is almost impossible to fully be. But I have grown due to finding her YouTube because I began to think about these things, learn and ask questions.

She also has a book called From Here to Eternity:

It’s a beautiful book about death practices around the world. I think it would be a good fit for you.

As for what happens, no one knows. I personally don’t think it’s anything. But you won’t ever experience ‘nothing’. That’s comforting to me.

Good luck, I hope some of this might help. ❤️

I used to be a vet tech and had to help many families explain the passing of their pets to their kids. Believe it or not - kids are more open minded than adults and much more savvy in most cases. Have an open discussion. I would create a scrapbook for him with pictures so he at least feels like he "knows" those people and that they didn't just up and leave for no reason, ya know?

I think when you're both on the same page and have discussed it openly it will help both of you. Try this book because it explains more in depth.

Bereavement Based on Spirituality is a tool designed to integrate the National Hospice Organization’s Guide of coping strategies with Biblical thought. The grieving process is ideally individualistic, not a cookie-cutter approach of healing. Fortunately, God relates with His creation on an individual level and Scripture has given us many examples that validate our thoughts and feelings of grief.

There are tons of books on it. Almost anything by Thich Nhat Hanh. In fact, he has one specifically on the fear of dying called No Death, No Fear

Oddly enough, I learned about the concept through a movie called The Peaceful Warrior. It talks a lot about "the moment". It's really about mindfulness without ever using that term. I'd recommend it very highly to understand what it means to be in the moment. It's a good introduction without the "baggage" of religion behind it.

there is a lot of subjective evidence if you research into the NDE phenomenon

for example this book of documented cases by dr. moody

life after life

u/bugeats · 8 pointsr/death

You're wrong about the evidence. There are case studies on so called "veridical near death experiences" where information is gathered during the out of body state that could not be otherwise perceived.

A good book (ignore the cheeky title) is Stop Worrying! There Probably is an Afterlife which covers several of these cases in addition to much more evidence.

Indeed, the place you go when you die may be the same place you were before you were born, and you may simply have lost your memory/ability to perceive that place.

It is a 9-page document put together by Joan Halifax as a sort of guide to a daily meditation on the topic death. I first came across it while reading her book titled Being with Dying: Cultivating Compassion and Fearlessness in the Presence of Death.

The introduction states the following:

"The Nine Contemplations that follow offer a way to explore the inevitability of death and what is important to us in the light of our mortality. The practice asks us to question what we are doing in our life at this very moment and to see what is important for us to do in order to prepare for death. The contemplations come from Atisha, an eleventh-century Tibetan Buddhist scholar, who systematized the method for generating an enlightened mind. This practice is based on the work of Larry Rosenberg."

At the end, the nine points to consider are summarized in this way:

"Death is inevitable. Our life span is decreasing continuously. Death will come regardless of whether we are prepared for it. Human life expectancy is uncertain. Death has many causes. The human body is fragile and vulnerable. Our friends cannot keep us from death. Our material resources cannot help us at the moment of death. And our own body cannot help us at the time of death."

I'm sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I recommend you talk to your parents. They'll be able to support you and keeping this from them consumes a lot of your energy.

The reason why we are afraid of death is that we don't know what happens at the moment of death. If we we're able to relax in to the not knowing then our lives would be a lot easier. When we know what we truly are then death has nothing on us.


What has helped me with my own fear of death was Eckhart Tolles book Stillness Speaks : Especially chapter 9, which is about death: "When you walk though a forest that has not been tamed and interfered with by man, you will see not only abundant life around you, but you will also encounter fallen trees and decaying trunks, rotting leaves and decomposing matter at every step. Wherever you look, you will find death as well as life. Upon closer scrutiny, however, you will discover that the decomposing tree trunk and rotting leaves not only give birth to new life, but are full of life themselves. Microorganisms are at work. Molecules are rearranging themselves. So death isn’t to be found anywhere. There is only the metamorphosis of life forms. What can you learn from this? Death is not the opposite of life. Life has no opposite. The opposite of death is birth. Life is eternal."


Another that has helped me is Adyashanti: Death the essential teachings

Whatever happens I hope you can find peace in the midst of it!
