Can anyone give me some advice?

So i started thinking of population recently , i mean when i think of the world population , it just scares me , i mean when i think of it , like how many people are there in my school let alone the other places , also those are only my age fellows and so many other people belonging to different catagories i cant even discuss here . my fear is that i think that the world is going towards chaos very rapidly , people are getting married so fast and children are being born on such a high rate , population is increasing so much even in minutes , i cant even imagine the pressure that is put on resources like food and no one cares , i mean no one , people just only think of themselves and their family , while we are running out of resources that will cause great suffering and i think after a time humans will be only species roaming the earth because there would be no place for animals , whenever i think of how many people are eating animals out there for their appetites , i get sick to my stomach

Main thing i want to say is that i think humanity is very selfish , each person just wants his joy , i think i dont fit in and im left behind because i m not like them sorry if post offends anyone or is long but please dont tell me to go to a doctor to discuss this because if i could i would not be here in the first place

Hello, it may help to seek like minded people on this subject. You are not alone in these thoughts and getting involved in organisations working on solutions may help ease your fears. There is hope, there are clean energy options and renewable resources. Yes time is of the essence, however being part of helping to progress in soloutions will be better for you mentally then worrying about these things on your own.

You sound like someone to take action. We need people with strong, heartfelt decisions. Maybe you can help find a way to renew resources?or something of that sort. Turn those overwhelming thoughts into action and you can do great things. I don’t think it’s irrational at all.

Illboy, I agree completely with your view of the world, climate change and pollution of the land and oceans is driven by over population, there are just too many of us for our planet to sustain. In my lifetime the world population has doubled, a quarter million people are born each day.

Slowly the people and the governments of the world are coming to realise this great danger.

But there is no problem in the world that cannot be overcome by the application of human thought. This problem is solvable but like all the great problems will probably only be confronted at the last minute.

However, you are worrying unnecessarily, because of your anxiety disorder your natural fears are magnified ten-fold and this is why you are stressing and obsessing about this subject so much.

Play your part in highlighting the problem of over population certainly but obsessing about this problem will only make you ill which won't help anybody.

Remember, this is just your anxiety playing tricks with your nerves. Concentrate on leading your life, that's what's important, in the end the world will take care of itself.

Hi mate, you should become an eco warrior! There are plenty of people out there that agree with you. No need to worry about it. 80% of the world's population lives below the poverty line anyway. So we won't run out of food as the majority of the world does not have any (sad fact)

The issue really is most people are self consumed and you will never change that. Just do whatever makes you happy, join an action group, become a hippy, go to rallys! Whatever you fancy ! We've been destroying the world since day 1. Eventually change will happen but not in our lifetime.

Just remember you only have one life don't waste it worrying about the rest of the dicks on this planet. Everyone has different opinions, 99% you won't agree with just find the 1% that you do.

I also feel like i'm one of those people who cares about the world and humanity, but it gets hard because there is so much hate, jealousy and envy, selfishness and the numbers who have these traits outweigh the few of us who don't

it also bothers me how do people go at extreme extents without worrying about the result while there are people like us who are cautious

I just wanna touch up on somethings you fear it may trigger you it may not but I believe we are actually already out of food aka a famine has already started why do I think this? Well every single food of ours is either GMO or highly processed its no longer the original thing.. take bananas for example they aren’t supposed to be big they are actually smaller than what we see today and yes they are injected with growing products but again thats part of the problem

This world isn’t anymore or less chaotic then it used to be and it may or may not get not worse

If your religious one of the bible verses talks about “the end of times” the start will be famine, natural disasters, and wars (i did not quote exactly but this is virtually what it says but again people read the Bible differently

But to me famine could very well be the genetically modified food we create and eat and we are seing more natural disasters such as hurricanes tornadoes volocanas erupting mud slides etc wars we are constantly at war with ourselves and sometimes other people now as far as countries and states we are heading into world war 3 which will be a very devastating war if it were to happen due to almost everyone who is an issue having nukes

So in my opinion i believe it will be a nuclear war

I Am sorry if this triggers anyone or anything but this is the way I see things and i thoght id fove some input

Critical thinkers are important and you are one if you can direct your thoughts to taking action about what is important to you. Be mindful that you lead by example. Live your life honestly and KNOW what your beliefs are and support your beliefs. Get out of your head and into the world and be a hero in your own life.
