3. STOP fretting about the future.
In the wise words of Marty Hart from True Detective, “For someone who thinks existence is futile, you certainly fret about it a lot.” Being hopeless and giving yourself an anxiety attack about the future don’t make sense fool.
8. STOP thinking you are alone. These feelings you are feeling are pretty common.
10. STOP thinking that not knowing what will happen is a bad thing.
Think back to the kid you were who felt the promise of a new school year. Not knowing where the F your life is going means you have the OPPORTUNITY to decide what it is you WANT and equally as important — what you DON’T WANT.
Your quarter-life crisis is exactly, that — YOURS. This time is “ME” time and you don’t have time to deal with “friends” who make you feel like their life is perfect and you are the only one falling apart. Think of your quarter-life crisis as a sort of social spring cleaning. Assholes to the left.
15. Now START doing the things that make you happy.
THIS IS THE TIME. Leave all the indecision, nostalgia, and helplessness behind. This is when you will figure out what career you are passionate about, which friends are worth keeping, and what you want in a significant other. You got this!
