Right time comes too late already..

I used to be a man of the world. I toiled to enjoy everything a young bachelor would like to experience in this life. Because of the pleasure they gave, I felt reluctant pulling off myself from the "world". Though I loved and enjoyed the things on earth, my soul was still adhering for something beyond my normal and rational grasp. Now as i bring back the past events of my dreary life, I feel guilty for wasting my time. I hate myself for not living a life that was expected of me. It was just lately when I began to love myself which, I must accept was something I was not adept of fostering. Why is it that most of the times, the right time comes too late already....?

I believe things happens because it is the right time for that thing to happen. Infact, there is no too late when it comes to achieving something in life.

yes i ahve experienced that too... i know its too late and we cannot bring back the past all we could say is if only... but even if its too late we still have time to change everything... little by little you'll see that even we wasted so much time before well we have to make use of our remaining time... and we have to plan for it and this time we really have to make it...

I feel at the age of 29, I still am personally having a hard time with accepting myself; or the things around me. I do at times, and yet other times I feel at a loss for it. I guess good things are worth the wait? I know so many people in this boat, and are suffering for it in the long run. Don't be too hard on yourself, the past is the past, and we all know we cannot change it. (Though most of us wish we could warp through time and correct those issues)

Life is divided into different stages and I think yours just followed the conventional path. Don't curse yourself for what you perceive now as mistakes you deed in the past. In fact you have to be grateful and appreciative of yourself for you played and finished that stage of your life at the exact time. There are people who wrongly skip some stages and then return to play it resulting to disaster. To make my point clearer I'll lay my premise in concrete form. Let's take the journey of a man who upon finishing studies and acquiring job spent all his time earning money and lived the most ideal life. No drinking, no night outs, no womanizing, everything he was doing is preparation for a wealthy family life. He reached the stage of having a family, a comfortable one as expected. One day a birthday celebration of an office-mate is held in a popular night club. For the first time he experienced getting drunk with a woman over his lap. What a wonderful experience! I am sure you know what happened next. Yes, the man went back to the stage he missed in his life. He played the stages of the game of his life in the wrong order. So my friend don't say that the right time comes too late for you. That time you are thinking today as wasted was the right time for those pleasurable worldly activities. Now that you have successfully crossed that stage, just concentrate playing the present stage where you are in.

I am and have always been of the opinion, that in life, it's never too late. All of us in the past we made mistakes, certainly can not go back in time, but everything is still part of the experience. The errors associated in the past, we must do so to avoid it in future. Do not you think you have to be a failure. But you must always look ahead and think positive! I also do in 37 years of life I was wrong many times, but not for this I finally gave up, I always thought, ok let's start all over again. So, remember my friend, I will repeat it again. It's never too late!

If you're still breathing, still alive, you still have time to make it right. Don't give up, because as you are breathing, there is still time.

At the ripe old age of 38, it's strange that you talk of fate. Get this from an older man, me at 52, have done all that you have and still enjoy life as I do. What to enjoy is not a reason to go be on a toss, it's your life to enjoy, and you better be the boss. What you do when young is not a waste nor a total loss, it's what the young do to grow up, and nothing is gross. What you did, for now, may not look so nice, it's mistakes that are a way to grow old and wise. What you have now is the fall before the proverbial rise, it's simply going through life and then paying the price. Just sit and think of life and all the mistakes, it's to know what is real and what are the fakes. I think for this you know you've got what it takes, it's thinking and doing, see the difference that makes.

it's never to late or early to learn. that's what we are here on this planet. we gotta have something to report back. so that means living and learning, even at the cost of making our mistakes. the right time didn't come too late cause you are a living breathing testimony of that. great post.

Because maybe for most of us, we always look at the good things - suppoesedly we knew we want these things for us and kept ourselves from experiencing the best things that we are promised of. We settle for the "good things" we thought we have not knowing there are better things for us out there. It may come too late for others, or on time for some... i guess though it just never comes on the times we thought it would because we are just somehow not ready for that, yet.
