The excuse "I don't have time for that" is the major stopper of our life changes. 

Most of us live in our own world.
We are constantly preoccupied with our everyday duties that increasingly overwhelm us.
We can easily depict in our mind millions of human bubbles in which millions of people are rushing here and there, out of breath. 
They are all working to make a living, fulfilling their home and family duties and preoccupied with all kinds of organizational and bureaucratic issues.
People around the globe are concerned with amazingly similar problems: career, family, making a living, health, taking care of other family members, etc. 

These problems can be seen as "routine problems", which compose the substructure of any "normal" life on Earth.
As long as they do not involve health issues of those close to us, we find these problems completely normal.
Unfortunately, what usually happens is that most people find in these "normal problems" an excuse for not changing anything in their life, for abstaining from developing hobbies they enjoy or from taking any new initiative that would improve their life quality.
 They will remain passive. 

"I am short of time" or "I'm under time pressure" are very common ascertainments.
However, we must accept the axiomatic fact that as long as we breathe, there will always be additional duties to perform and new challenges to cope with.
We should not let these duties and endeavors blind us from our real emotional needs, from what really matters in our life.
Our children and parents will always need us, no matter their age.
There will always be work to be done.
Yet, amid all these multiple tasks, we mustn't forget our
self and what really is important to us, what I like to do, who I like to be with, what makes me feel good and what makes me feel bad. We have to give ourselves answers to all these questions if we really want to make changes and improve our life.
This self-contemplation requires that we remain only with ourselves in a kind of reflective observation through which we can connect to our inner self.
We should keep away from people who make us feel anxious, depressed, guilty, inferior or give us any kind of bad feeling.
We should do this without any guilt feelings so that we can improve our life and maintain our physical and emotional health.
There's no need to offend the other person, but do elegantly keep away.
Life is too precious to be wasted on feelings of pain and distress.
In view of vast research proving the link between physical and emotional health, we should protect ourselves from people who produce negative energy around us.
On the other hand, we should seek the company of those who fill us with positive energy and make us happy.
That's the pure essence of survival.
