quarter life crisis Marso 7, 2006

an email was sent to me by my friend Joyce. I’ve known her for a while and i am glad we are keeping touch again…

i do believe i am at this point in my life…

‘They call it the “Quarter-life Crisis.” It is when you
stop going along with the crowd and start realizing
that there are a lot of 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 do not
realize is that they are realizing that too and are
not really cold or catty or mean or insincere, but
that they are as confused as you.

You look at your job. It is not even close to what
you thought you would be doing or maybe you are
looking for one and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and are scared.

You miss the comforts of college, of groups, of
socializing with the same people on a constant
basis.

But then you realize that maybe they weren’t so
great after all. You are beginning to understand yourself
and what you want and do not want.

Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what
others are doing and find yourself judging a bit more
than usual because suddenly you realize that you
have certain boundaries in your life and add things to
your list of what is acceptable and what is not.

You are insecure and then 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 to get to know better. You love someone but maybe
love someone else too and cannot figure out why you
are doing this because you are not a bad person.

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 and money and 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.

That’s Life — enjoy the ride”

Never take someone for granted.
Hold every person close to your heart
Because you might wake up one day
And realize that you’ve lost a diamond
While you were too busy collecting stones…=
