    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………
