    Well you wont have more power when you get older aswell, on the contrary. When you are young people will actually care if they hurt your feelings or what your reaction is. When you get old, you'll even have lost that luxury

    Hehe, but thats a different topic. The entj thinking he has power and the entp knowing there is no such thing like power, if not everybody accepts that there is

    No offense Elfie, but when I hear people complain about not having the money to interior decorate, or travel to Italy, the phrase 'white people's problems' pop into my head. Chris Rock.. or maybe Dave Chapelle had a routine on it. Anyway, keep in mind some kid in Somalia would kill to be you.. literally.

    Well true, tho I tend to think of that problem: only because it is a different definition or dimension of freedom, it doesnt mean it is not the same feeling

    Maybe this is a bit of jaded bitterness coming out, but I cannot stand when rich people complain about their luxuries. The thing is, Elfboy, if you wanted to go to college you would find a way. You're young, full of life, and possibilities. Whatever you want, you can work towards it and get it. On top of that, you have the privilage of having parents that are well off or planned accordingly to ensure you were set up for college. No struggling, no working two jobs while trying to study through bleary eyes, etc. You're set.

    I know a lot of people are very jealous, and ill-tempered when they hear this.. "Ugh. Spoiled." and they scoff while wishing they had a situation just like the one they're scoffing at. But I think it's a great thing. It's an awesome opportunity a lot of people don't get. I know you'd be able to do what you set your mind to.. but having an easier time of it is never a bad thing. If your parents were dangling their generosity over your head, I could see some frustration.. but the end result is, you could struggle as hard as others and still get the same results.. but being ahead of the game with this will only further your opportunities for the things you do want--like this arbitrary power thing you're struggling with.

    I feel like mid twenties is going really well so far. I've done all the major leg work career wise, yet am very healthy, on my way to becoming financially well to do, and have the independence and play money to do what I want while still having the health, time, and energy to do it. Love being young! Life could very well be at it's best in the younger years, you never know.

    Which illustrates that happiness has a lot more to do with mindset than circumstances, after certain basic needs are being met. Anyway, I wanna go to Italy and buy some new furniture and get some chicks too, I tell myself the same thing and just figure out a way to enjoy myself. I know it's definitely not my youth keeping me down, though.
