Funny you mention that lol. Was going to post in the "what's bothering you" thread about that

I was looking through old work emails and saw stuff from 2011 I swear was like a year or two ago. Time is really really depressing

Yeah, when I was younger. Then I picked something I was passionate about, regardless what anyone else thought. Worked on that every day. Problem solved.

But it's not as easy as it sounds. I have met some people who knew their passion at 5. I have met other people who were 80 who never even had a passion for anything. Regardless if they tried to find it or not.

The way I figure it? Time is passing by us all and we might as well do something with it. Find your passion, you may not feel like this anymore.

Thats more difficult for me than the average person because of Asperger's Syndrome as it leaves you with only one choice of interest, usually an odd one that nobody knows about. Its not an excuse, I have tried and nothing.

Life has passed me by. I see it wayyyy off on the horizon, a tiny speck getting ever smaller. I got trampled by the normie lemmings running after it.

That's true. More often than I'd like to admit I sit around thinking about all the years I flushed down the toilet trapped with SA. My 20's almost didn't exist.

I'm trying to focus on the now. This moment is all we have. I want to live such that I make the most of every day.

I feel like it has already passed me by and is long gone now.

I ain't got no passions.

Here's to life, the vice
The great herald of misery
In this cup, spiritus frumenti
For this is the nectar of the spirit

YEP. Seems like everyday is a choice between feeling bored and comfortable and full of regret or trying to do something that is incomprehensible and terrifying. Guess which one I chose?

Just curious, what is your passion?

Don't like the prospect of pouring all of that time into a skill? The good news is that the sheer act of practicing will help you come out of your shell. People quit because it takes too long to see results, because they can't figure out that the process is the result.

Well, when you waste your days collecting Thomas the tank engine toys I can see why you might feel some regret.

I didnt say I regretted anything, that was another poster, all I said was I feel like life was passing me by, has nothing to do with collecting.
