I doubt that people are malevolently interested in having any of us waste our lives. More likely, they're focused on themselves and their own lives, and have a vague idea about ours-- most probably misconceived. The person who cares and is responsible for our lives, if anyone is, is us-- and if our lives have been wasted, it's just bad luck, bad circumstances that have conspired, abstractedly or with no intentionality at all, to that effect. Perhaps you got discouraged or profoundly depressed, or disillusioned-- and that dreained away your motivation, your mental acuity, or your common sense-- maybe no one intervened to guide you, not because they harbored ill feelings, but because you simply didn't become an object of their interest, or engagement. These things happen-- not because anyone's out to get us, or takes joy in our languishing, but because of ourselves and the possibilities that the world happens for no reason not to provide.
