What is the difference between lost and waste? Hi! What is the difference between lost and waste? For example, It's better said "I lost my time" or "I waste my time" Thanks

I dropped my keys. I cannot find them. I lost them. I should have used my money to buy medicine for my grandmother, but I wasted it on candy instead. My boss made me work late, so I lost time to study for my test. I should have studied for my test, but I wasted time watching TV instead. lost= something bad happened to me wasted=I did something stupid.

lose like something happened without your approval or agreement but waste is like you do it by your self and you waste it on ridiculous things ( that's my opinion)
