It is well known that lgbt people tend to have a lower life span than straight people.
Lately, I've been really afraid of death for some reason, even though I'm only 21.
Is anyone else afraid of dying at a young age? How do you deal with it?
You just don't think about it. That's literally it.
Also don't think you're going to die early. Those are just statistics but there's probably gay men that live a long time.
Pat patterson old professional wrestler is probably in his seventies.
The only reason I even fear dying is because something in my brain tells me that there is an afterlife, and my life of selfish, faggotry was actually a burden placed onto me to test my faith.I don't think anything in this world will ever convince me that my fear of a Hell-like place is irrational. This life doesn't even make sense to begin with.
Not really. MtF here and i smoke, drink and dont really pass that much. Chances of me dying due to transphobia is huge and i dont really care. Depends on how much you care about your life to worry about your health or if youll die because of some asshole.
i'm 25 and same, i am afraid that some of my relatives who still like me will die or that i will die and i don't know how to deal with it. i just cry a lot then i feel better until i feel like crying again ad infinitum
>You just don't think about it. That's literally it.
Denying death is the worst approach you can have.
Death is a part of life, by avoiding death, you are avoiding an intrinsic aspect of life. The only way to live fully is to accept your mortality and of everybody else's. I know it is scary, but it is unavoidable.
Cherish the piece of eternity that you got to live.
Many of our society's mental illnesses come from or delusion of trying to escape death.

Honestly im glad ill probably die before age 40 just out of pure grief and depression, although I wish I was brave enough to do it myself
I've been afraid of death since I was not even 9 years old, I don't care anymore, I didn't care about being dead before I was born so why should I care about being dead after I'm born, I won't exist so it'll be impossible for me to be sad or unhappy ever again
The only reasons for this are the higher rate of STDs and homophobic murders, which causes a larger portion of the population to die very young. This pulls the mean life expectancy down. A mean of the IQR would most likely give the same life expectancy as heterosexuals.
So really, to live a normal lifespan:
>Don't hookup and avoid STDs
>Learn self defence, including defending yourself against armed attacks
It's a pain, but the first will make your relationships and sex life more meaningful, while the second one will make you look more badass.
>the first will make your relationships and sex life more meaningful
is it even possible to get into a relationship without hooking up nowadays?
Every time I tell someone I don't want to have sex 5 minutes after meeting them they lose interest in me
