View Full Version : Help-Missed opportunity and Regret

Jul 13th 2008, 05:19 AM
Hello there, thank you for just reading this if you had a chance. I feel blessed knowing that there are people like you guys all over the world offering their unconditional positive regard.

Okay, I have fell in love with a musical instrument. It has provided me with the opportunity to escape everything that has happened that is sad. But I found this gift out kind of late-soon I will be 17 years old and that itself is kind of scary-17 years of life gone. You probably say that I'm young but I am old compared to many guitarists who started wayyy young.

But I just wish that I discovered this earlier in my life so I would of had this experience as a child. There are so many possibilities and each time I have a memory of when I was younger I would fantasize about a way the guitar would come in. I was wondering why God did not put this earlier in my life so I could have the beautiful experience as a child of learning how to play(I know it sounds weird). How do I get out of this?? Should I just ask God to miraculously put this experience into my mind? When I look at artists like Coldplay, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Cartel, and others I feel like I want to be like them. I know that we ae one big great family descending from Adam and Eve and part of God's great big family it's makes me love each and every one of you-even if I don't know you personally :hug:. So whenever I see the guitar and start playing it I feel regret and depression knowing I will never be a young little player of the age of 12 so I don't know if I want to even try because it leaves me into depression-days where I can't even get out of bed thinking about a time when I heard a song and wondering why in my mind I wasn't motivated to play it. I feel like it continually challenging me, forcing me to say that the soul has no age and I should focus spiritually, or that this opportunity is in the past and I had it in the past-that gives me a sense of comfort. I do not want it to haunt me. I feel driven to killing myself to just start over (that was a crazy idea but I know there is no reincarnation and that I will go to hell)

So I am kindly asking you to help me find logic while approaching this and right now I feel a dark emptiness inside my heart and I want to know if this part of my life will open up and be golden. Will it all end up being good? I put in red my major points.

In Christ,
