Are you wasting your life?

I've recently had a friend of mine tell me that he believes he's a waste of life and wants to kill himself to free himself from his pathetic life. This is not a suicide prevention post, by the way. I helped my friend out and tried to get him in a positive direction, he no longer wants to kill himself thank god. So, do you ever believe you are wasting your life? Do you ever want to do something different with your days? What would you do differently if you could?

Honestly, I am thinking about this question, and asking myself in front of the mirror, am I wasting my life? I sure am wasting my life. You know what, I don't like what I do now, and I got no girlfriend recently, because I broke up with my ex. And the girl I like, I don't even have gut to talk to her like a man. I have my plan for future, but I was too lazy to implement it. What am I? A wasting time.

Well,I think things are not that bad.There is a girl that you like,but you don't have gut to talk to her?Isn't this a challenge?I mean,if you try to let her know what you are thinking,maybe there will be a chance,a change in your life.Though I am not sure what gonna happen after that.Anyway,you did something different then,you are doing what you dare not do,and you can't say it's a waste of time.

I think that I do waste a lot of my day by playing games or wasting time on facebook, however as a whole I don't think I'm wasting my life at all. I like to be here earning money online because I am trying to save up for a deposit on a house which I won't be able to afford if I don't work very hard while I am at my computer. Once I have managed to save up for that I will be able to relax a little because my partner earns more than enough to pay for the mortgage and the bills, so I will be able to concentrate on decorating the house and getting it all up to scratch.

Not at all.My life is kind of a golden gift for me.Life is not a waste,or a mistake.We do waste time by thinking we are alone."Alone" can also mean unique which noone truly is.It's this idea of being unique that often leads us to think we are alone.If we stopped focusing on the things that separate us(our differences),we would understand that there are far more similarities than differences.When we comprehend this notion,we see we can never really be alone in life.

I don't believe that there is such things as wasting your life away. So long as you are doing something that you really enjoys doing and it is something meaningful, you're already making the best out of your own life. Life is so short so we should all treasure it and make sure that we live life to the fullest and be happy and satisfied with whatever we are doing.

I enjoy every minute of my life. Even if I am bored I still like being above ground. I've done a lot with my life. I'm retired now, but I am still using my noggin to make part of my living as an Internet writer. I love what I do and my emitted are happy so it's always a good day for me.

I really have never felt that I was wasting my life in any way. Are there some things that have happened in my life that I feel are a waste? Well from time to time, I am really not going to lie. We are not going to be happy with everything and in hindsight, something that we have in fact done in life is going to be considered to be an insane waste of time. There are going to be many times where we are going to feel that we are going to really think that our life is all for naught, but really it is just a lot of things in our life that are the waste, not life itself. However, my life has not been a waste. And as long as I live, I feel that I have time to make it even more valuable a lot of the time. There are going to be many times that life is going to be rather tough but as long as I can breath, I am going to really have a chance to make something out of my life. Hopefully there are going to be something with a lot of meaning but there are going to be easy days and there are going to be hard days. That is just what life is all about in any number of ways and hopefully I get the most out of living it. Never thought my life in general was a waste however.

I dont think that I am wasting my life but I look back at it and wish I could of done alot of things different. I have a good job but my brothers have better jobs. I wish that i would have read more book when I was growing up also. I dont ever feel that my life is a waste though.

I am here in this life to worship God. Goad created me to worship him alone. I am living for him in this short life so when the hereafter comes he will reward me for that. Life for me is just a bridge to the hereafter and i am a passenger siting under the shadow of a tree for a limited time then i continue my journey.
