I wanted to revive this topic, since I feel the same way about time. My God, look at the thread date, 2010 :-(
Whenever I look back, or think of the year we are in, it causes me grief. Like something lost don't I'll never get back again. I think I might even be obsessed with this. On some level, I think I am blaming myself.
Could it be that people who worry constantly, or are stressed feel the effects of time passing more?
On one aspect, for the suffering from depression for example, time might seem like its going slowly. You might spend weeks, or months depressed or stressed over something. But when the depression/worries/stress come to an end, you realise that actually years have past. So even though in your turmoil things might seem slow, in reality, time has passed for the world.
So time passes slow for the individual, yet when comparing it with the calendar time that has passed it seems quick, because our inner time seems out of sync with the the calendar time.
Which brings me to my frustration, if only I hadn't been depressed, worried constantly I would have been more in synch with the actual calendar time, and I wouldn't be worrying where the time went.
Am I right? Hopefully I am wrong. Maybe even the happiest of people who have never suffered from depression or constant worry, feel the same way. If so, there is nothing that could have been done.
