    In your twenties

    Being Twenty-something - they call it the "Quarter-life Crisis".

    It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that

    there are many things about yourself that you didn't know and may not


    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 don't recognize is that they are realizing that too, and
    really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as


    You look at your job ... and it is not even close to what you thought

    you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing

    that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.

    Your opinions have gotten stronger.

    You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual

    because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your

    life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is
    and what isn't. One minute, you are insecure and then the next, 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


    You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do
    damage to you. Or you lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone

    decent enough that you want to get to know better.

    Or maybe you love someone but they love someone else too and cannot

    figure out why you are doing this because you know that you aren't a

    One night stands and random hook ups start to look cheap.

    Getting wasted and acting like an idiot doesn't seem as fun.

    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, money, the future and making a life for


    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
    can to figure this whole thing out.

    Pass this to your twenty-something friends... maybe it will help
    feel like they aren't alone in their state of confusion...

    "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the

    moments that take our breath away."

    It's really amazing when two strangers become the best of friends, but

    it is really sad when the best of friends become two strangers.

    Love from another twenty-something!!
