    I used to think and get worried about life like you, I still do sometimes. I used to get worried about my grades every year through college and university, then after that passed I used to get worried about my job and career. And at this moment I have further worries. The worst thing you can do in these situations is overthink, this will surely cause more harm than good, so stop yourself from overthinking.

    I know you might not want to here this but I want to share it with you because it helped me. I am a Muslim, every time I found my self panicking or in a situation where it felt like there was no way out or nothing that could improve, the only way I could find myself at peace was to pray and get closer to Allah. The more I believed and trusted in Allah, the more happy and peaceful I was. Islam has answers to everything you need to know.

    I am not taking adavantage of your situation and I am not trying to force my beliefs towards you. I just want to share how I get through situations and hope that this may help you.

    with regards to death, can you even remember what it was like before you was born? Death is like that. Not so bad is it. Another comparison is when you sleep but dont dream. Its a neutral state and once you become actual dead, you wont mind it. It'll be alrite.
