10 Signs You Are Wasting Your Life Away. by Nobody: 2:43pm On Nov 11, 2017
1. When you've not seen someone close in more than a year and they ask you:

"Emeka/Funke it has been so long o, wow I can't believe it!

'So..what have you been up to?'

You pause and answer something like:

'Errrrr..not much...still working/schooling you know!'

Same old _shit, just a different day. You should strive to improve, gain new skills, acquire more knowledge & achieve new goals every targeted period. You can't afford to remain the same way you were last year.


2. You have a PhD in Procrastination.

You wake up every single day, determined to finally start taking your job serious, or read that book you always wanted to; but as the day commences, you get into a slump and plan to start the same thing the next day.

In other words, you don't get anything done because you procrastinate a lot.

3. You keep checking your phone and messaging apps every few minutes.

When you find yourself every ten minutes or more checking Nairaland, Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp & Twitter(where 90% of things are fake) for likes & mentions. You spend long hours daily playing candy crush or watching silly comedy skits. Except you are making money online, Bros your life is just wasting away.

4. You find yourself complaining a lot.

Do you complain about your job, your school, your neighbors or your spouse? If you do, then you are doing nothing but exuding negative energy. Negativity or complaining doesn’t solve _shit. What have you done to solve that problem giving you that headache?



5. Watching too much porn and feeling drained physically & mentally after masturbating.

6. When you wake up every morning “After snoozing your alarm for ‘n’ times repeatedly” - Which means you are not interested or driven to do anything productive that day! When you find yourself doing this too often then you haven't found your purpose in life.

7. When you find yourself changing your opinion on things depending upon who you are talking to at that time, because you don’t have an opinion on anything. Whatever anyone says always seems to make sense to you.

8. When you have to lie about your hobbies on your CV, because all your life was centred around mindless studies and other habits not worthy to be considered as hobbies.

9. If you find yourself often bored and tired. You have been on the bed since morning pressing your phone and you can't just wait for the day to end.



10. Finally, when you are worried that you are wasting your life away - This is a big red flag that you are truly wasting your life. Get up and take bold charge of your life. Invest in yourself and believe in yourself because if you don't no one else will.

The hope is also wasting is life by sitting to write this poo and as welll waiting for likes and mention .Thousand of graduate with good vision and mission are outside there soliciting for 25,000 job however still find it difficult to see. To become an entrepreneur is even more challenging looking at the overhead cost.where else do you want them to be order than a forum for a business ideas and other motivating talks which will change thier lifes for the better.

smiley smileyYou also wrote this to get likes and mentions. I guess we are all wasting our time.

I'm of the opinion that social media shouldn't be used as a yardstick for wasting one's time.

Well I do agree with you on this. Except you are making more money online or you are looking for a job through the Internet, addiction to social media eats the time that could have been spent on more productive activities in your real life.

I'm not saying being on the social media is bad, but being addicted to it is counter-productive. It seems all fun now until 5 years later when you back down the years and notice you are still where you were 5 years ago. Nothing meaningful has changed, you have spent half your productive years fishing for likes on Instagram or playing football manager 2018. angry

The post is rubbish. It's actually targeted at spurring depression in people, little wonder suicide is on the increase cos people like the OP feels theres a certain *path* to success and anyone going contrary is a loser.
