It seems that everyone around me is having the same problem, we are going through the quarter life crisis and there’s nothing we can do about it. This is just another phase of life that we need to overcome.
To be honest, I’ve been here for quite a while. Not when I turned 25 no. But I think it was a few years back after I graduated from college. Let me tell you a bit about my situation, I love traveling. For me traveling the world is a dream and reason of my existence (lebaay). It also involved me living in other countries and traveling to lots of cities, however, the reality is, my mom is quite strict. My mom loves me that much that she just won’t let me go anywhere far from her. Whether is for school or work, no reason can get me out of her side. So that’s one dream down. Yeah, thankfully I feel okay on not chasing my dream and being a corporate slave for the rest of my life. Isn’t that ironic.
Another thing, my generation hates being a corporate slave, including me, but most of them are brave enough and have the courage to gave up on monthly income, throw some of their money and time to open a business. because I’m not. I started working since 2011 , since then I supported myself financially and never asked anything from my parents. So if I want to open a business and take it seriously, I need to save up quite a lot because of unexpected situations (what if to build the business take longer than I thought, What if it fails, etc). And I just don’t have the courage to give up on my monthly income, I just need reassurance that’s all.
So how do I overcome it? I don’t. I’m still in this situation, but I feel like it’s almost ending. Why?
- I started to accept the reality that I’m in
- I’m firm on some of my choices
- I’m not confused anymore
- I have fun and feel happy because of the small things
So did I overcome quarter life crisis? not really. I just live that’s all, but of course, I also pray to god for it to be over quickly. lol. but other than that, you just need to live and figure out everything slowly. Stay chill and have a moto of “hmm okay, whatever”, only then you survive. (another lol)
How about you guys? any tips and trick to overcome the quarter life crisis? just leave a comment 🙂
