Im soo scared of getting older and looking older. Sometimes i dont even go to sleep because of always thinking and obsessing about it. I just wanna be young Forever. I would rather die young than live with wrinkles. OHH MY GOSH......

I used to be afraid of getting old. I remember when 30 seemed SO old. Now I'm on the threshhold of 40 and I wouldn't go back for anything. Yes, the skin changes some and so does the shape of the body, but the wisdom and knowledge you gain from growing far outweighs the physical stuff. Once I found my purpose in life, getting old is fine.

I'm also 19 and terrifed of getting older but for different reasons. I think figuring yourself out, ultimately being genuinely as happy as you can someday, and living with the smallest amount of worry is more important than what your skin looks like. In no way am I trying to make your fear sound illegitimate, but try to think of it from that perspective. And hey, there's always plastic surgery if you believe in it. Take care
