Greetings Barbarians! Long days and pleasant nights. I won’t deny, I spend time thinking about my misspent youth. I regret nothing, but I wish I didn’t squander away my time as a young man. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy with where I am today. But much like everyone else, my life is far from perfect, and I am still figuring things out.

Now, back to this week’s TMI!
The Tale of a Misspent Youth
If you found a fountain of youth, would you swim in it?
Of course! Who wouldn’t want to dial back the hands of time? It would be great to erase a few lines on my face or get my luscious hair back. Being young is a lot of fun. You wake up every morning, and nothing hurts. Plus, you can eat whatever you want without worrying about getting fat.
Share a quick story about your misspent youth.
I spend a lot of time on my relationships instead of focusing on getting better. I relied on it for happiness and forgot to take care of myself. It took a failed marriage to realize that I wasn’t doing anyone a favor. After that, I sought help and began working on myself.
Some people say that youth is a state of mind, do you agree?
I agree, but I also believe people have to act according to their age. ‘You are as old as your joints are’ is a more realistic idea. If you can do the same things that people half your age can, then good for you. As for me, as much as I’d like to think I’m still at my peak, I think I’m on the decline.
Do you feel that you wasted your youth?
Absolutely. I regret nothing, but mistakes did happen. I think some things could have been done with a bit of finesse. I don’t have many memories of my youth, as if life only happened to me when I became a father. All I can remember from my younger days was music and taekwondo.
Are you anxious about death?
My death is something that I always think about. It keeps me anxious yet motivated, I’m afraid to leave stones unturned. Yet, I fear that I will have to let go of some of my dreams with the way things are going. I already squandered my youth, and I’m afraid that I am still wasting away.
Bonus: When do you dislike too much chatter?
I hate myself when I talk too much, but I can listen to someone chatter for hours. Everybody is going through something, and sometimes that person needs to unload. I don’t have the slightest idea on how to fix my problems, as much as solving yours. But if someone wants to say something, I am willing to listen.
Well, that’s it for our TMI this week! I hope you enjoyed it! If you have anything to add, please comment down below. I’d love to hear all about it.
