Yup, while I was going to school struggling to survive, and working a job and a half
I used to get depressed often, because it seemed as though it took forever for me to accomplish the goals I had set before me. Time passed, I suffered a lot, but accomplished every thing I had set out to do. It's the waiting, we tend to be creatures who want what we want now
, thing is, this world don't work that way. I started a lot later than most people, did 4 years in the military and then pursued college. I would not change a thing, everything I did and all the suffering I endured prepared me for the issues I deal with on a daily basis today. Most of the situations of my daily life are nothing compared to the things I endured getting here, I still get depressed at times, but as usual its always about something that I wanted and dint immediately get, just like a baby.
I don't mean that in humorous way, if you examine the world of babies, you will find that comfort is the most important thing to them, if they don't get fed, changed or whatever emotional reinforcement they require they throw a fit
after they get what they want then they become satisfied until the next comfort issue arises. Maturity changes little except the nature of our comfort issues.
