You know CM?, you are not alone in thinking that. I have heard many different theories. One of them being that it is a past life experience, and that you died young in a previous life. I don't know if you believe in that, and I'm not really sure if I do either. But, it makes a bit of sense from what I've heard some people explain.
I also had a friend, and I don't mean to scare you at all, that always said he knew he would die young. I always got angry with him for saying it, and so did his family. I'm sure this was just a coincidence, but he did die at 32.
I think that our fate is in our own hands to handle in some respect, but I also believe when your number is up...it's up!
I don't know if that helped any...just my thoughts. :)
