    What do you like to panic existentially about?

    (not just general worries, existential ones.) How much do they bother you? Are you ever unable to put them aside and just move on with life?

    I don't really know what existential means. I guess I'm just referring to worries that you choose to center around Big Questions instead of tangible life-sized dramas.

    Like to panic about? Nothing. I don't like to panic.

    But I do worry about lots of things. I suppose some of them are sort of morbid and existential...

    Will I be miserable my whole life?
    Will I never find lasting love?
    Is any of this really worth it?
    Will I be helpless and alone when/if I reach old age?

    Are my senses trustworthy enough for me to accept what they tell me about reality?
    Am I really what I think I am, and is the reality around me really what I think it is?

    But these are questions you can never know the answer to 100%. Might as well ask if we're all in a computer simulated by aliens. Or maybe YOU'RE just in a computer simulated by aliens and I'm just part of the program!

    Do I exist? (Answered to my own satisfaction at age 13)

    What is the purpose of my specific existence? What are the implications if there is no purpose? (Crept up on me in my twenties, worried about it for a few years, thought I had an answer, realized I was wrong)

    For some reason, being in a stable relationship seems to make those worries less important to me.

    I don't worry about it (them). I don't believe you will ever find the answers to these mysterious "existential" questions so why worry about them? That will just get you down.

    You'll be dead soon enough from a cosmic perspective, enjoy your ride while it lasts.
