You still have a lot more time, you’re young, but I get how you feel. I’m 22 and I have felt the same

Hi. You can't waste your life at age 21. Your life is just beginning.

As for as wasting your life at ANY age goes, life is a journey of learning and we all move through life at our own pace. There is no right or wrong speed.

Wesket, what do you wish you could have done differently?

It is never too late to change your direction - I became a mother at 39...went to University at 46. I refuse to pay any attention to the passing of years.

Whatever you wished you'd done - it's never too late.

It only takes a one minute decision to change the course of your life forever.
