I have recently accepted mortality, I am now mortality salient at fourteen, I have accepted that I will die of natural causes and that my time on Earth is finite.

What are others views of death? Is anyone else here mortality salient and can anyone give me any advice as to whether I should be mortality salient?

I can't think of any reason why it would be bad to be mortality salient. If you understand it, accept it, and it does not frighten you, congrats. I am mortality salient but I don't think much of it...

How do you know it will be natural?

But, no, seriously, coming to grips with a finite existence probably is one of the best things a living creature with sentience can accomplish.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.
