Twenty something crisis
Pretty Long piece, but worth a read
They call it the "Quarter-life Crisis." It is when you stop going alongside the crowd and start realizing that there are many things about yourself that you didn't know and may not like.
You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.
You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don't recognize is that they are realizing too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they're as confused as you.
As you look at your job, it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing that you're going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.
Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and finders judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding and deleting things to those boundaries. You have a theory list of what is acceptable and what isn't and it gets update every minute. You are insecure and then the next, secure.
Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling on to typeset with dear life, but soon realize that the past is drifting furthering further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.
You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lie in bed and wonder about someone you want to get to know better. Or maybe love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you're doing this.
You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself... And while winning the race would be great, right now it seems like to be a contender!
What you may not realize is that everyone reading this relates to it. Weary in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we canto figure this whole thing out. Send this to your twenty something friends.... Maybe it will help someone feel like they aren't alone in their state of confusion.....
GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF US :)
