21 and Beyond

Two day ago, my mom came into my room with this necklace in her hand.

Gosh, it’s a golden key necklace! She told me this [necklace] is for me, and that I have grown up now. She also did refuse to tell me the price of that necklace. Lol. As corny as it may be, I appreciate my mom for getting that necklace for me although there is no way I gonna put that on my neck. Haha!

So, just like any other young adult, I have to come to terms that there is gonna be lots of changes in my life and new responsibilities to shoulder upon myself. Perhaps one way or another, all of us have experienced the Quarter-life Crisis one way or another. I thank God I found refuge and comfort under the support of my church friends and girlfriend.

Some charactertistics of the Quarter-life Crisis include:

  • realizing that the pursuits of one’s peers are useless
  • confronting their own mortality
  • watching time slowly take its toll on their parents, only to realize they are next
  • insecurity regarding the fact that their actions are meaningless
  • insecurity concerning ability to love themselves, let alone another person
  • insecurity regarding present accomplishments
  • re-evaluation of close interpersonal relationships
  • lack of friendships or romantic relationships, sexual frustration, and involuntary celibacy
  • disappointment with one’s job
  • nostalgia for university, college, high school, middle school or elementary school life
  • tendency to hold stronger opinions
  • boredom with social interactions
  • loss of closeness to high school and college friends
  • financially-rooted stress (overwhelming college loans, unanticipatedly high cost of living, etc.)
  • loneliness, depression and suicidal tendencies
  • desire to have children
  • a sense that everyone is, somehow, doing better than oneself
  • frustration with social skills

But no matter what happens, come what may, I am ready to take on the new challenges and obstacles in my life! Gonna get the best out of my life!
