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'm probably going to live to a 130, that's the plan and the minimum.

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.
