Death is inevitable but do we actually like to die?Death is inevitable and we all know that we will have to leave this world one day. But, I don't think any of us would actually want to die (even those who commit suicide do not so because they wish to die). To live for a few more days/ at least moments is always there at the back of our mind.
We keep hearing people, especially the old and the terminally ill, saying that they have had enough and would like to be embraced by death at the earliest. But, if my observation is correct, the desire to live longer is always there with us. I am not saying it as a negative trait or something but I think it has got something to do with how we value our lives. There is no end to our dreams and aspirations. I have seen many old people saying that they won't mind if death comes to them once their children are settled, then they go to the higher levels like seeing their grandchildren going to school, college, getting married, having children and so on. Similar is the case with many other situations.
What I mean to say is that we all love our life, whether we are happy, sad, enjoying or suffering; we all want to live longer. This is just an observation which, though subject to exceptions, I feel, is true. What do you think?
