I’ll be the first to admit that I have no idea what I am doing with my life. I have reached the point of having a quarter-life crisis. With stress from school, work and life, I realized (as I hid underneath my bedsheets, which can qualify as my version of a fort, reading my favorite books and hiding my stash of junk food I claim to avoid eating) that I am not the only one failing to truly handle the “growing up” phase in life with ease and confidence.
Rather than write out my feelings in journals that are continuously stacked in piles residing in boxes collecting dust in my attic, I figured why not share my stories and thoughts about this roller coaster of a life. I can’t promise you that my story can help you in handling your transitions, but what I can promise is that you aren’t alone in your journey.
Our twenties are an era in which we are forced to grow up, set our future, figure out who we are, who we want to be and do it with confidence that we should learn to embody by now.
I don’t know about you, but I am just as lost now as I was when I was a child. Only in childhood, I believed with everything within me that I was going to be the next Indiana Jones or the next Disney Channel Star.
Right now reality has set in and I am currently a human form of contradictions. I know what I want, but have no idea. I like myself, but critique every little flaw. I am calm, but over think everything. I am outgoing and fun, but then quiet and shy. I have lots of friends, but then only a few close ones. I know where I am going in life and want to hide with my stuffed animals and avoid adulthood.
Basically this is going to be a journey, but I don’t mind sharing mine with all of you. Hope you are along for the ride….
