Quater Life Crisis

Another e-mail from Tracy

> “Being Twenty-Something…”
> They call it the “Quarter-life Crisis”. It is when
> you stop going along with 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 people 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 that too,
> and aren’t really cold, catty, mean or insincere,
> but that they are as confused as u.
> You look at your job… and 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 are
> going to have to start at the bottom and that scares
> you. Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see
> what others are doing and find yourself judging more
> than usual because suddenly you realize that you
> have certain boundaries in your life and are
> constantly adding things to your list of what is
> acceptable and what isn’t.
> One minute, you are insecure and then the next,
> secure. You laugh and cry with the greatest force of
> your life. You feel alone and scared and confused.
> Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling
> on to the past with dear life, but soon realize that
> the past is drifting further and 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 lay in bed
> and wonder why you can’t meet anyone decent enough
> that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you
> love someone but love someone else too and cannot
> figure out why you are doing this because you know
> that you aren’t a bad person.
> One night stands and random hook ups start to look
> cheap. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot
> starts to look pathetic. You go through the same
> emotions and questions over and over, and talk with
> your friends about the same topics because you
> cannot seem to make a decision.
> You worry about loans, money, the future and making
> a life for yourself….. and while winning the race
> would be great, right now you’d just like to be a
> contender! What you may not realize is that everyone
> reading this relates 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.
> Send this to your twenty-something friends…maybe
> it will help someone feellike they aren’t alone in
> their state of confusion………
