    Most of the people on here are about 25 years old, the average lifespan of a male is about 85 years old. Don't you ever stop and think I can't believe I've already completed practically my first 1/3 part of my life and it's gone so quick. And if you think like me you only get the one life that your given on earth. I think if most people thought like that everyone would be living each day as if it were their last. I mean it's already the end of January and it feels like 2014 has only just begun

    This is a curious question considering you just joined the group today.
    Of course, what you say is true but what makes you think many of us don't feel the same? I do.
    It's also odd that you say to live every day like it's your last but you have a private profile.

    I think it was in my early 30s when I had similar thoughts. Eventually, I realized that "it is what it is" and I'll just do the best I can for as long as I can. The benefit of belief in religion is that we have something to look forward to after we die. Just hopefully not for a long time yet. I think this is just a stage, and you'll get through it eventually. The old timers on here can probably talk about other stages that I haven't reached yet at my age, 42.

    I was kinda hoping that it was just me just being overdramatizing n the moment. To be honest the whole thing is quite a scary thought to me anyway. I think I was looking for was some kind of reassurance

    The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. If I can lose weight and learn Krav Maga, anyone can.

    Well, so maybe the first thing you need to focus on is how to earn more money. I don't know where you are or your situation or what opportunities or limitations you have. However, I do know you have access to the internet which means you have access to a wealth of information -- almost anything you could possibly want to learn about -- and most of it is free.

    You have to start somewhere and that 'somewhere' is always right where you are. Dreaming or wishing for something that doesn't exist, or that you haven't created the foundation for, is waisting the time you have. -- And you're right, 85 years is NOT a long time (in the grand scheme of things, it is hardly any time at all -- and for me it is now less than 20 years away).

    But worrying about it is also a waist of time.

    Use the internet to find resources that will help you organize your life and time more constructively. Set short-term and long-term goals, make 'to do' lists. Educate yourself so you're worth more money to an employer. Be sure to take some time to 'smell the roses' -- which means enjoy the simple every-day things of life like sunsets, birds singing, what ever it is around you that is a FREE GIFT of life.

    Thanks Mike you make some very good points especially the one about worrying being a waste of time too. I think the thing is I'm practically set up my life to graduate from uni in 7 years full time and now I'm starting to think maybe that's not what I really want like latter down the track I think I'm gonna regret spending the best years of my life studying

    I have panic attacks about this all the time (I'm chronophobic), but I keep it to myself as much as I can. I completely understand you.


    I know it's such a horrible feeling. As much as I would like to keep it to myself and not try to freak anyone else out I honestly think that talking about it really does help. At the end of the day were all in the same boat so we can all help eachother to make life easier. I think now I can look at it in a positive way as a reality check to make sure that I live each day with meaning and be nice and treat everyone with respect

    You never know what tomorrow will bring. Forget tomorrow...



    That doesn't mean you don't plan for tomorrow. Just don't count on it because often regardless of our plans and actions, life has its own. And its bigger than we are. And there's no arguing with it.

    So just pick a direction, watch your step and run with it. See where it takes you. Live life as an adventure, not as a prepaid phone plan.

    As you get older, time moves faster.
    They say this happens because when you are 10, a year is 1/10th of your memory.
    When you are 25, a year is only 1/25th and so on.
    The weeks are already going by in a blurr for me.

    1) Have no regrets: Decide what you want to do, do it, and don't look back. See, it cuts both ways: You can regret all the time you spent studying; you could equally regret NOT having spent that time studying! If you're going to have "regrets" you're going to have them regardless which choice you make. So, accept the fact that EVERY decision you make brings consequences, some good, some not so good. Embrace the good and learn from the mistakes and move on.

    2) What makes you think these are "the best years of my life"? What makes you think studying, which is building a foundation for your future, is a "waste" of this time?? What makes you think your future will be any different from your present if you do NOT build a foundation for the life you want to be living? You seriously think it is impossible to both study AND enjoy your youth??

    We start to die the moment we are born. Thus ding is all apart of living. may it be long or short. The fact I survived the gay Plague Era to be 50 and still HIV-. I got a long life compared to the many I lost that never got to be 30 or 40. i have also been very blessed as in being loved too. So now I just enjoy the ride; what is ever left of it? I feel for filled.

    I never thought about it like that. I really didn't feel like it went by quickly, I feel like I'm still a kid.
