Did you have a quarter-life crisis?
The expression “quarter life crisis” hasn’t been around for too long. The first time I probably heard it was around 2005, and it seems like it’s only applied to the current generation of 20-somethings. (I’m 25.)
Is my generation just really self-absorbed, or have we finally found a way to describe something that happens to young adults in every generation? I’ve talked to people my parents’ age and older, and a lot of them went through a confusing time as young adults before they figured things out. Then again, it seems like people my age are really confused, and they’re putting off adulthood longer and longer.
(My loose definition of adulthood is basically, being the captain of your own ship.)
Did you have one of these, and if so, what was it like? How did you move past it?
