A quarter life crisis is defined as “a period of insecurity and doubt that many people in their mid-20s to early 30s go through surrounding their career, relationships, and finances.” This is what led me to start this site. My quarter life crisis sends me into a spiral of self help essays and motivational quotes. But after that, I am always inspired to go out and be better. It’s okay to live in despair for a moment, because feelings deserve to be felt. Just make sure to use that fire to build and grow into something stronger!
Because the QLC is a universal motivator, I asked my friends what their quarter life crisis taught, pushed, encouraged them to do. Here’s what they said.
Move to New York, take a leap of faith, and stretch beyond my fears and anxieties. – Dawn R.
Be my own hero. Ain’t nobody gonna save you from anything, so it’s a challenge of your own strength when you realize exactly how much power you do have over things… #ishowedup
