DEDICATED TO MY FRIENDS, FOR THIS I FOUND IS COMMON AMONG ALL OF US .......
It is in this age when we stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that there are many things about ourselves that we didn't know and may not like. We start feeling insecure and wonder where we will be in a year or two, but then we get scared because we barely know where we are now.
We start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that we thought we were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people we have ever met, and the people we have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What we don't recognize is that they are realizing that too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as we are.
We look at our job... and it is not even close to what we thought we would be doing, or maybe we are looking for a job and realizing that we are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares us all.
Our opinions have only gotten stronger. We see what others are doing and find ourselves judging more than usual because suddenly we realize that we have certain boundaries in our life and are constantly adding things to our list of what is acceptable and what isn't. One minute, we are insecure and then the next, secure.
We laugh and cry with the greatest force of our life. We feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and we try and cling on to the past with our own dear life, but soon we realize that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where we are or move forward.
We get our heart broken and wonder how can someone that we loved so much could do such damage to us. Or else we lie in bed and wonder why we can't meet anyone decent enough that we want to get to know better. Or maybe we love someone but we also love someone else too and cannot figure out why we are doing this because we know that we aren't such a bad person. We want to settle down for good because now all of a sudden that has become top priority. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic. We begin to think that a companion for life is better than a hundred in the shack and for once we would not mind standing tall for that special someone which otherwise we had never thought of until now. We go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with our friends about the same topics because we cannot seem to make a decision. We start worrying about the loans, the money, the future and making a life for ourselves... and while winning the race would be great, right now we'd just like to be a contender!
Every one reading this may try to relate to it. We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out. Dear friends maybe it will help you all feel like you people aren't alone in their state of confusion as we all are feeling the same way...For this is what we can call as the "Quarter-life Crisis" of our life. And together we will all pass through it successfully.
