This is not a race. The more you try to catch up with others, the more you are going to see yourself left out. You only have one maze to figure out, and it is your own.
Quarter Life Crisis
You’ve lost your spark and you need to shake things up in order to get it back. Change won’t happen if you don’t make a change. What did you used to get super excited about as a kid? Skipping? Doodling? Making mini pizzas with questionable toppings? Re-visit the good times and bring them back! You’re never too old.
In my early twenties / gossip made me stressed / but lately I don’t give a shit / ’cause I’m the fucking best
My parents are two of the coolest people I know. I actually enjoy hanging out with them. Shout out to them being the best DDs I could ever ask for.
There’s something about turning twenty-five that feels like a life event for many people. The internet is littered with articles and blogs about the, “quarter life crisis.”
You don’t have to have it all figured out.
It is a period of severe discomfort, un-fulfillment, confusion, anger, discouragement and frustration. It is also the period where you start questioning everything; yourself, your parents, your friends, your job, your faith and why you are still here or if your life has meaning.
It seems like the world is practically pressuring you to go out there and find yourself and your passion, create something out of it, focus on your next steps, go shoot for the stars, etc. If you don’t know what you want to do yet, that is okay.
People ask you about goals and plans for the future and you develop an ulcer on the spot.
The dictionary has defined a ‘quarter life crisis’ as “a crisis that may be experienced in one’s twenties, involving anxiety over the direction and quality of one’s life.” Some will say it happens after leaving college, but believe me, I have already had plenty and am sure to have some more internal dilemmas in my post grad life.
