Question

DAE Wonder How They Will Make It To Old Age?


I'm 26 (about to be 27 bleurgh). People say I'm young but i don't feel it. I already feel like I've lived a thousand different lives. I've been through the ringer a million times already...My life expectancy is till 90. I don't know how I'm meant to take much more. I just don't understand what I'm supposed to do? It's frightening. I've lived too much.

i dont have anything left to live for. i don't want to burden the earth with more kids so what am i meant to do for all of these decades? i just don't understand how i'm meant to make it through.

I'm not suicidal...too afraid to die. But yah I'm afraid to live all of these decades. Life's hard enough as it is.

i say global warming can not come soon enough to make me feel better.
i just dont know how i can take much more. How do we cope like this?

Yeah I know although I haven't lived a thousand different lives. I lived 1 very meaningless average one.
But I dread the years coming, the end is so far away. Living the exact same day for the next 17000 days feels horrible.

Wow! Life expectancy is 86 for a 27 year old woman in the UK!! Thought it would be more like 80.

Wonder what that's based on? I think the average life expectancy is actually going down + the UK has an issue with obesity, not as bad as the US but still a thing.

edit: plus the alcoholism of people here yeah.

@komikurun

All the women in my family live until their mid 90's, so mines a bit higher.

Apparently I have nearly six decades left. That's too long of a wait.

I have an extreme fear that I'm going to die soon. For the last 10 years I've led an extremely unhealthy lifestyle (I'm a complete addict). As you say, I'm 30 but I feel like I'm 80, I've been through so much and it's just taken its toll on me. I agree too, there's no way I would ever bring kids into this world (first I'd actually have to have a GF, ha!). Seriously this is a cruel cruel world, reality is a *****, and there's no way I'd want to see an innocent soul grow up in this deep dark world and god forbid end up like me. I don't want to die, I don't want to live. I just want my existence erased from the fabric of time, complete annilihation.

Meditation, chi kung, law of attraction and a couple of other things I'll be working on. Plenty of time, I'll figure it out.

I'm pretty good at just continuing along. I could probably live to 90. I dont drink or smoke etc. 63140. it might get a bit more boring and tedious than it already is... I need to learn how to create more drama. 63161

I'm surprised I'm alive now 😮






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Is this a hidden message/code?

Alternatively the numbers are some kind of glitch involving emoticons since this website has a bunch of weird tech issues.

Well I plan to get better and I'm just drawn to the idea, to do something people think is impossible or unlikely. It'll be interesting to see how the world changes and where it will be a hundred years from now and because I want to be one of the people that helps this world, I believe that's what I'm here to do. To have a hard and life and overcome it so I can be a master and help others. Imagine that, a 130 year old master helping where world raise it's frequency.
