quarter life crisis

I've been going through what my hippie friends tell me is a "Saturn return", which is something about the stars and Saturn aligning when you're 29 going on 30 and deciding your life should be shitty for a little while.
I ended up calling it quits with John via ghosting method. As much as I need a guy who is more "yea" and not "meh," he needs someone who is going to appreciate him for not only who he is but where he is in life.
Instead of wasting time comparing yourself to others, spend it figuring out what's meaningful to you. What makes you tick. What kind of change you want to see in the world. And remember this: synonyms for the word "crisis" include a turning point, a crossroads.
Whatever it is I may be doing, I don't want to be questioning my choices. I want to be certain that am I doing what I love and what makes me happy. So if a mid-life crisis is anything like these feelings of uncertainty and unhappiness, I'll make sure to sleep through that one.
I dread the question: "So, what are you going to do next?" I'm ashamed to say that I have no idea.
Let's take social media back to it's core: sharing your life, as it's happening, with all the mess and beauty that comes along with it.
I believe we are all put here for a purpose. You were created with unique, God-given talents, skills, and passions -- and I'm a firm believer that our purpose in life is to live out all of those things for which we were created.
While we've never seen people celebrate another's success much like the Internet did, there's a few things we can learn about success from Leo's Oscar win.
Young people deserve to know the truth -- that being 20-something isn't always a dream. Sometimes it's a freakin' nightmare (sorry, someone had to tell you!). But everyone's experience is different.
We're conditioned early on, especially as women, to value security above all else and cling on to it at all costs, and it takes an exceptional sort of fearlessness to tune out the expectations of the people in your life and risk your own security, in pursuit of genuine happiness.
The key with exploration is to welcome and embrace it. Don't expect instant answers, don't force yourself into a box created by others, and most importantly don't force yourself into a box you created.
No, I am not going to know my purpose in life before 30 and I'm not going to quit my job to figure it out.
And, if you're strong enough to hold out long enough -- and sometimes that means just standing in silence while you regain your strength -- you'll eventually break through the walls of your cocoon. The thing is, once you're free, you're going to need to learn how to fly.
You feel like you are actually running OUT of time instead of having too much of it. And the panic starts to set in.
f in the future certain circumstances make staying afloat a challenge again, this time I will have the ability to prevent a full blown downward descent and successfully navigate the waves of change.
Okay so first things first -- this post isn't just for those itching to break out of the cubicle, grab their backpack, and spend all their savings on finding themselves. It's about honoring what's right for you and believing in your dreams and passions enough to take a huge chance on yourself.
Everyone knows about the mid-life crisis. But what about your quarter-life crisis? It's real. But these pieces of advice can help.
And I'm scared to put my agency behind something because I'm distinctly uncomfortable with the idea of slinging my pack over my shoulders and walking over the horizon, knowing I'll never return to this place again.
