15 Signs You Might Be Suffering From a Quarter-Life Crisis
You’ve graduated and you’re well into the adult phase of your life. Unfortunately, you aren’t coping too well with it all. The quarter-life crisis is kicking in.
1. Making basic decisions, like what to have for dinner, sends you into a mild panic attack.
Don’t even mention the important ones.
2. Not only this, you’ve also started questioning every decision you have made so far.
Maybe Uni wasn’t for me? What did I actually learn from that gap year?
3. You have moved back in with your parents, who insist on making you feel like a 12 year old.
4. But in every other aspect of life you’re expected to be a fully functioning adult.
5. Your part-time summer job is now your full-time job and only source of income.
6. You can’t remember a time when you weren’t applying for jobs.
7. Everyone is suddenly either engaged or having babies.
At what point did it become socially acceptable for you to do these things?
8. The only thing you’re capable of thinking about is whether you should pursue your career or throw in the towel now and go travelling.
9. Facebook stalking old coursemates to see how successful they are is now part of your daily routine.
10. You’ve stopped seeing birthdays as a reason to celebrate.
They’re now just a cruel reminder that time is running out.
11. You dread seeing family members and old friends because the good old “So, what are you going to do with your life?” is bound to come up.
12. You’ve written a bucket list of things you must do before you’re 30 (and the fear of not completing it is real).
13. You feel betrayed because no one warned you it would be like this.
14. So you feel an overwhelming responsibility to prepare others.
15. Your only source of solace comes from reading posts on the internet, like this one.
Hey, at least I’m not the only one.
