i might have mentioned it before…but perhaps by mentioning it again, i can impart the severity of the quarter-life crisis.
it is real folks, regardless of the parental scoffing, and underage questioning. it happens.
according to a brilliant article from discover magazine, there are five undeniable phases:
Phase 1– A feeling of being trapped by your life choices. Feeling as though you are living your life on autopilot.
Phase 2– A rising sense of “I’ve got to get out” and the feeling that you can change your life.
Phase 3– Quitting the job or relationship or whatever else is making you feel trapped and embarking on a “time out” period where you try out new experiences to find out who you want to be.
Phase 4– Rebuilding your life.
Phase 5– Developing new commitments more attuned to your interests and aspirations.
