    Default How often do you feel that life is passing next to you?

    I am curious how much you can relate to this and how often you are afraid that this could be true for you? In the case that you have this kinds of fears what are you doing about/with them?


    Example:


    1.Person: OMG it is already 13.5.2009

    2.Person: So ?

    1.Person: SO?! Life is passing next to me and I am not living it!



    I am asking since it looks to me that a number of people have this fear.
    Even when life is not passing next to them.

    I do feel this way all the time.
    And life does go by too fast.
    I think that I expect too much of myself in one day, sometimes. I plan myself full but then don't plan for unexpected events like chit-chatting online, napping, a friend calling, taking a shower. So the day gets filled up with all of these little diversions and I never get the giant bulk done as expected. And the day is over.
    And life passes by this way.

    I guess I wouldn't call it a "fear."
    Its more of a mild annoyance. Getting busy and having time fly by without always getting everything in that I really want. That is an annoyance for me.

    I don't say annoying things like. "what? its already may 18th?"
    Cause there's nothing I can do about what day it is

    I've never really gotten it, honestly.

    I don't feel a lot of pressure to live life to the fullest, to sample everything it has to offer. Which is why I don't mind when it passes by. Any more than a person who doesn't want Ice Cream cares when the Ice Cream truck goes by. I just want friendship and freedom to study, along with a bit of comfort perhaps. It's funny, though... the people who want everything seem to get what I want with no trouble, but quickly use it up to get something they see as more important.

    i wouldn't want to go back in time for nothin. However, this morning i noticed there was a bit of 'autopilot' to the way i sprinted up a hill. As if the mind was still prepared but the body didn't respond in it's usual advancing manner. So i may be back here to this thread in a month or two if things flow in there stadard nature. i think it's just a fluke though.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    It usually happens when reflecting back on what I wanted to achieve.

    Ditto. Especially when the date and time are brought to my attention. Reaction, "oh my goodness, we are in May already, gosh I had hoped to travel to MORE places by now and write MORE by now and thought of MORE things that I should have done by now"

    Also, when I come across someone I like and really admire what they are doing, I add that to my list of things and immediately wonder when I will have time to do that thing too and whether I will have enough time to do all that I desire and the upper loop starts again...

    There's also always this nagging feeling about this alternate universe where I am matched with the perfect job for me or perhaps, more realistically, perfects jobs (serial occupationist would likely be perfect). I just keep feeling like I haven't found my path to this alternate universe yet.

    This is very interesting since person 1 in the exmple is very very likely a Ne-dom.

    I was thinking about directing question to them but I have concluded that asking everybody will be more productive on the long run.

    Yep, me too.

    When I get on that train of thought it always ends up with anger that I just don't have enough time in my life to squeeze everything in because it's moving by too quickly.

    I still can't believe I'm almost half way through 2009, I really intended to do more.
