Re: [CHAT] Life After School

I think I might be in the middle of a mild quarter-life crisis right now Smiley Tongue I'm just trying to remind myself that it's ok to not know everything about yourself right now and that it's going to take some time Smiley Happy

Re: [CHAT] Life After School

While some of us manage to escape it, a lot of us fall victim to the dreaded quarter-life crisis at some point after we finish school. Is this something you or someone you know have experienced before? How did you/they get through it?

 

I went through this for a while, and eventually I started getting more involved in things I was passionate about and decided that I could figure it all out at a later point in time Smiley Tongue I also learned during this time that sometimes everything becomes a bit too stressful/anxiety-inducing to face alone, so when things get tough, seek help!!

@Chessca_H I think that thought pulled me out of my crisis honestly!!

I definitely went through this! I moved out of home and lived with some... less than respectable characters... Decided I would throw away my studies and didn't really care what happened after! Ended up taking a year and a half off, struggled through a lot of it but came out the other side with some pretty strong conviction for my future. I am very lucky though, I have seen a lot of friends that get stuck in a rut and still haven't been able to see the other side of it yet. It's so easy to get lost in this world!

@FItzChivalry its great to hear you came out so strong in the end!!

Re: [CHAT] Life After School

@FItzChivalry Wow, it sounds like it took a lot of strenth to get out of the other side of that!

Even tho I haven't figured out what I want to do it didn't hit me as a crisis. I was pretty relaxed about it and had lots of other stuff to focus on. Getting a career became secondary to my mental health issues

Yup, this happened to me during my first year of uni. Having just accepted that I chose what I chose, I think that having social expectations and being sad about my choices was quite a struggle for me. So, I didn't do so well at all that year. But I went to a guidance counsellor, went to a few student workshops run by my uni's student services, as well as applied for alternate examination settings to get myself on track. Needless to say, it all worked out Smiley Happy

@redhead That's a good attitude to have about everything I think!! It's best to focus on yourself and your health before anything else
