The mid-twenties is one of the most exciting times of our lives and no one can argue with that. Back in the days, this specific period of life was once considered the perfect time to settle and start being contented; say it’s the time when our grandfathers already had a stable source of income, a spouse, and a family to feed. However, times have changed dramatically and it looks like more and more of the young adult population these days seem contented being stuck to their adolescent or teenage years.
There is good reason why you’re here, reading this post. It’s safe to bet that you or maybe someone close to you is currently having some tough time identifying where life is heading. Do you feel like your age is getting older but you still haven’t achieved anything of significance yet? The good news for you though is that there also are millions of young adults out there in the world who happens to share the same sentiment. This kind of guilt or fear that you haven’t made any progress in your life in this particular stage is something commonly referred to as quarter-life crisis.
Be reminded though that we aren’t saying that you already are in the middle of this crisis. Now in this particular article, we’ll help you by revealing the signs that you’re on your way, and then you can use the information here to at least do something about them, provided you already have these signs.
1 – The first major telltale sign that something’s not right is when you start questioning the purpose of your existence. In more than two decades of living your life, the fact that you still aren’t sure what your purpose is something you need to be concerned about.
2 – You’re feeling very terrified by the idea that your best years in life may already be behind you and that you have not made anything important in your life.
3 – You feel so down and anxious whenever you hear news from your friends who happen to be the same age as you, especially when the news is about their engagement, pregnancy, new job, or new house. While a huge part of this feeling is caused by your own desire to get those things before you reach 30, the fact remains that in your twenties, you definitely are having a very slow pace in terms of improving your life.
4 – You’re not even prepared to live separately from your parents.
While those signs above are surely a major cause for concern, they’re not really a threat to your very existence in this world. However, you certainly want to address them if you’re planning to live a better life in your 30s and onwards.
