You still have eternity
Do people who believe in an afterlife prioritize spending time with people they don't think they'll see there? You know like killers, kidnappers, atheists and people who believe the wrong thing? If you have a limited amount of time with some people, but will likely see others ad infinitum, it'd make sense to do that. Like at a party, where one guest is a doctor and has to leave early, whereas others are staying for the weekend and are always hanging around anyway. This isn't meant to sound satirical (though I feel like it's coming out that way), but it's really something I wonder.
I wish I believed in an afterlife -- a good one, I mean. It would take one gigantic, overbearing thing I have to worry about and eliminate it altogether. Can you imagine being able to cross that worry (dying) off your list? No wonder Jews are hunched over and spend lots of free time wondering about what might possibly go or have gone wrong. The stakes are higher. One wrong step and that's it. Even less drastic stuff, like spending 40 years in a job you didn't like, it's a bigger deal. You look back and think -- I wasted half my life -- whereas believers get to say, "Forty years? A drop in the bucket. We've still got eternity.” Even a centenarian believer gets to say, "Onward and upward" and mean it. And for those whose life was cut short, it’s really just a party the neighbors called the cops on. So it ended a little early. It was fun while it lasted.
