When we are young, we do things without knowing consequences (or perhaps without bothering to consider the consequences), we get hurt that we did not expect and we learn to leave and let go from the hurt.
When we are old, we do things knowing the consequences, we prepare for it/them, and it becomes hard to leave and let go; because everything is ‘manageable’ and ‘expected’, especially the hurt and pain.
Which is why as we age, it becomes harder to end something.
Or to begin something.
When we are kids, time passes by ever so slowly. I recall feeling bored because a day seems so long as a child.
When I am in my 20s, I feel that time flew by. In the blink of an eye, I am in my late 20s.
And they say when we reach our 30s, time fly by even faster. Before you know it, you are in your 40s.
So from the above, can I infer that… As we age, time will pass faster, and our decision to start and end things become tougher?
Is that why we may end up not having achieved much despite years passing by?
Just a thought.
