I have this problem of waiting until I get things sorted so I can then enjoy life. Meanwhile, life passes me by.

It is hard to be happy when I am so out of sync with my cohort, since I feel a need to "catch up" even if that doesn't make me happy, just so I can relate to them. Its hard to be happy when I am not getting what I want from life and don't know how to get it (or don't like what it takes to do it).
