Missing Opportunity

Scrap Thoughts

Torschlusspanik This German word is used to denote the feeling that time passes very quickly. It’s a feeling we experience, over the years, especially if we are not satisfied with what we have achieved in life. It also leads to the sensation of feeling on the verge of missing the train, the fear of losing the opportunity of a lifetime.

In fact, the literal translation of Torschlusspanik, would be something like “fear that the doors will be shut” includes concern for the passage of time and the feeling that we’re not taking enough advantage of it.
