I Am Wasting My Life Away

    I had better write this down

    before the thought leaves me. There is something horribly wrong with the way I'm living my life. It's horribly wrong because I never do anything wrong. I've always been a hard worker, respectful of others, got good grades and respected people who didn't even deserve my time...

    I'm wasting my life because I'm too afraid of

    screwing it up to actually live it. I've never understood when people my age say that they're excited because they have their whole lives ahead of them. The way I see it, my whole life is right now and the next 60 years or so are just consequences of what I'm doing today. It...

    Life'S Suffering.

    Not being able to understand our suffering is the worst kind of suffering there is. It is far worse than physical pain.And the reason why we don't understand our suffering, is often because we don't know what we are living for in the first place.

    Never reaching my potential.

    Going to the same job doing the same work everyday. Making enough money to be able to go back the next day and do it again.

    Think about this. Life is a dream,

    and a test. Constantly having to choose between right and wrong, being put with a temporary family, while you live, learning to love and forget, it's just one giant lucid dream. And soon enough, the dream will be over and you'll wake up somewhere better.

    I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel,

    darkness is all I see. I'm stuck in this place, I can not move, I'm paralyzed by fear, by change, by failure. And I can't seem to break these chains that are binding me, I let so much and so many people hold me down. It's a never ending cycle I don't even know where to begin. I...
