First I was dying to finish my high school and start college. And then i was dying to finish college and start working. Then I was dying to marry and have children. And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough and so I could go back to work. But then I was dying to retire. And now I'am dying. Ans suddenly i realized that I forgot to live. Please don't let this happen to you. Appreciate your current situation and enjoy each day.

I don't think your feeling is unique to the people of a certain region but of the whole globe. I did share the same feelings with you sometimes - to become another self. But now I have fully realised the happiness of being myself now and am reluctant to enter another phase of life. Youth will ever be retrieved once lost. Albeit I am still in my 20s, I have begun to feel the anxiety of getting old, which means I have to say goodbye to many things.
