Born During the Wrong Time

2 years, 1 month ago

What do you do if you constantly feel as if you were born at the wrong time? Almost as if God, the Universe, or whatever diety (or lack of) you believe in accidentally put you in the wrong generation?
I mean, I walk around furious because I see all these people just EXISTING when they could be LIVING. Its like they’re trapped and they’re comfortable with it.

If you feel you were born in the wrong time there are only two solutions I can think of. You can dedicate your life to developing a time machine so that you can go to the right time, or you can be a force to make your time the right time. The choice is yours :)

Sounds like a textbook example of “The grass is always greener on the other side”. Would it be inconceivable that you’re just having a sense of angst and the easiest internal fallback is to blame it on something beyond your control, like when you were born?

@jgeraci93,

its a mental trick to dissociate yourself from the present

@jgeraci93,

you were born exactly when you were meant to be, if you see people living that way, how does thinking you are from a different time help, now, in the present, other than to separate yourself mentally and perhaps feel superior?

i am probably being dramatic, still a consideration though

Actually I think that’s one of the aspects I’m thankful for being in the “information age” which has it’s flaws but I can choose what to avoid/what i’m interested in. Tv has become intolerable to me both as entertainment and as a way to pass time. I feel you though man everyone seems so absorbed in shitty 3-d movies,cell phones, and repetitive 3’rd person shooter video games. I think about these things more than I really should but I’m trying to better understand what the hell is going on in my city. People have no motivation to get off welfare and now more than ever people steal/commit both petty & highly irrational crimes. There are no jobs here and if there are everyone is applying for it and it’s a temp job. In a city of 50,000+ I remember when Menards (home improvement store) was doing in person interviews there were so many people that showed up a friend and I waited in line for 8 hours. Only to get a 5 minute interview, no thanks for coming out,no free coffee or something. I used to think how much I desired to live in the 60’s-70’s and i’m sure in retrospect they were good times but when it was going on i’m guessing there was plenty of corruption/weird things going on. Around here at least it appears there is an instant gratification,apathy,condescending and hopelessness/fuck it attitude. our media is more deceptive more than ever, even information you find online can be biased, have secret agendas People are scared and rightfully so I personally believe that’s whats holding us back right now. People have “waken up” to general idea of how well were being fucked in every direction and i’d like to think i’m on track of informing my self more and more each day. But at what point do you say ok i’ve informed myself but what good is all of this if i’m not doing anything with it i’m no better off than the others. We’re living in a very interesting time in history right now.

You don’t like the music ? good load up your ipod there are plenty of bands from the past, and bands reviving music from the past virtually every niche genre no matter how little has some type of scene. You can find any movie,documentary,porn,tv show you want and there is an endless amount of books on anything you could desire on amazon. try meeting new people in different areas.
