“The new atheists share with the religious fundamentalists the belief that their way of seeing the world is the only way there is. Now science is a valid way of seeing the universe, religion is a valid way of seeing the universe and they have the difference between prose and poetry. So anyone who thinks only prose exists or we only need poetry is a fundamentalist because they fail to understand the many ways in which we have to interpret the universe in order to live a meaningful life.”

“To wait. In our lives, we know joy, anger, sorrow, and a hundred other emotions, but these emotions all together occupy a bare one percent of our time. The remaining ninety-nine percent is just living in waiting. I wait in momentary expectation, feeling as though my breasts are being crushed, for the sound in the corridor of the footsteps of happiness. Empty. Oh, life is too painful, the reality that confirms the universal belief that it is best not to be born.”

“everyone loses 10 years to something, somewhere along the line”

Source: This HN comment


Read through the thread. Look how many stories there are of people losing years and years to something that they now regret. The realization is that this is the norm, not the exception. We’re all just fragile and fallible and trying to make our way through life as best we can, and we all end up messing up big somewhere along the way.

It’s easy to look back on 10 wasted years and think you failed, you blew your one chance at life. But if you come to realize that looking back on 10 wasted years is actually a common human struggle, it can help you reframe your regret as just another one of the trials of being a limited, mortal human and not take it so personally as your own failing.
