Calling it a key milestone only makes you feel worse. The whole world is crumbling upon you and you’re feeling doomed. They call it the Quarter-Life Crisis and it’s happening to you. Yep, you’re turning (or have turned) 25 and all of a sudden you’re acting really dramatic.

1. Saying the words “I’m 25” just feels strange and slightly embarrassing.

Remember when you used to show off your age with your younger friends? Well, those days are long gone.

15. You’ve started staying in your comfort zones.

And that involves watching your favourite Disney movies every now and again. Which doesn’t help with the whole “I’m too old!” thing you’re currently going through.

16. You’re always comparing yourself to your parents and the stress to compete is just too much.

17. But you find comfort in headlines like: “According to some researchers, maturity isn’t fully formed until you get past 25”.
