A Fear Of Cremation


One of the largest and most universal fears that people share is the fear of dying when they're too young or not ready. However, another fear regarding this is the process of cremation. Most people don't really think about it, but you would be surprised how many people fear cremation when they come face to face with the possibility or choice.

Cremation is a fear that can apply to yourself or even to the process of cremating a loved one after they have passed on. To some people this fear or phobia seems quite silly and absurd, but to those who have it, their reasons are good enough for them.

One of the biggest reasons that cremation is so strongly feared is tradition. Cremation is still a fairly new concept to the general population, and some individuals simply prefer to stick with the standard. However, the reason for how many people fear cremation can be found in the idea of breaking tradition.

The thought of attempting to perform a funeral service with a process that is foreign to them can be quite scary. There is even the thought that the traditional burial service was set that way for a reason, so why should you risk playing with it?

It's extremely common for someone to completely tune out and ignore the thought of God, religion, or even an afterlife until they are faced with their own mortality. This is another common reason why many people fear cremation. Many people wish to hold out on giving themselves over to God until they're on their deathbed and because of the existing theory that destroying the body can in turn destroy the soul, it's hard for someone who lived without religion or theology to risk making the choice to lose their soul without knowing any better.

This also applies to the people who simply follow whatever the required guidelines are for their specific Christian or other religious beliefs. However, the majority of the different Christian denominations have changed their stance on the process of cremation. In the end, if it comes down to religious or traditional beliefs, then simply check with your family or religious leaders. Do the research and take your time before opting for a cremation. When all is said and done, you'll find that there really is nothing to fear.
