His uninspiring story threw me for a loop. Out of the blue, I thought of his problems, and asked him some questions regarding his hobbies. I imagined that if he had just spent time enjoying his favorite things, he would have forgotten the feeling of loneliness which he has been encountering.
We have twenty four hours per day. So, not letting life is passing me by is my goal. No one is capable of making us be happy if we don't know how to overcome hindrance by ourselves, and think about our troubles pessimistically.

Ok I was a little more creative with my changes this time!
You just said 'friend' so pronoun 'he' is simpler. 'This guy' has a critical sound to it.
'uninspiring' sounds critical, so I changed to describe your feeling, as 'troubled' for example
Out of the blue - a thought that arrives suddenly - probably unnecessary. (remember my personal preference is to be succinct !)
Change to use a pair of 'would' and 'could' modal verbs
'per', while corrrect, is usually used in more mathematical talk. In conversational English, '24 hours a day' or like "I work eight hours a day" is common. I don't know of a rule though.
I deleted 'So' to give your sentance more punch.
I rewrote the last sentence with a positive spin instead! You know me!
