You can never say never. Imagine you were told you have just a few months left to live. Imagine the people you loved all died. I am being serious. It may sound morbid, but you need to try it. You need to be able to be the person you would want to deal with in those situations on an everyday level. How much do you think your life would change? You will find your relationships deepen and be more rewarding, and you will feel more connected to those you care about. Best of all, you will feel good about yourself. Living life to the fullest does not mean economic gain. It means giving in to your mortality, setting aside your ego, and giving to those around you on a level beyond the material.
