Quarter-life crisis

September 14, 2009 4:15am CST
I'm turning 27 this month and I think I'm experiencing this kind of emotional crisis, which affects people ages 21-30. According to wikipedia characteristics of this are: *feeling "not good enough" *frustration of relationships *confusion of identity *insecurity regarding the near future *insecurity of life goals *insecurity about present accomplishments *disappointment with one's job *nostalgia for school life *tendency to hold stronger options *boredom with social interaction *loss of closeliness in high school and college friends * financially stress *loneliness *desire to have childran Anyone from mylot experience this things?

I am forty three and still feel all these things you have mentioned. This should be your time to shine,life is what you make of it. Turn all those negatives to work for you in a positive way.This will help you to make some changes.Only you have the power to do this. Good Luck please be happy your not staring to get wrinkles. I would give anything to tun back the clock 20 years.

HI there, when i was almost 30 I don't like my job anymore, my co-workers, and I don't like to go out with my friends. I was so bored with life, the routine, the nonsense that one day I just cried so hard and told my mom that I don't want to work anymore because O don't like to see the faces of the people in the office. Then I went back to school and took up some masters then I felt good. Then when I heard that some people at my workplace were retrenched, I went back to work.
