Quarter life crisis. Recently, I quit my job to follow my passion. Was it worth it?
I still read articles about this phase because I am not over it. And I’d like to share this article that I read because I can relate to it.
This crisis lasts for two years.
Yep you’re right. Two years… Pretty much a long time. But it also said that you could benefit from it. Which I am really hoping because I am tired of feeling unsure with my career.
There are four phases of quarter life crisis.
This article talks about these four phases.
- Phase 1: The feeling of being trapped. May it be from work or relationship or both.
- Phase 2: Thinking of change by exploring other possibilities.
- Phase 3: Action. You are now taking action of what you want to do with your life.
- Phase 4: The brighter side. Everything is falling in place. The happier version of you.
I started feeling like a robot.
I could still remember how excited I was going to work. However, everything changes when I felt like I was programmed like a robot.
Thinking of quitting.
From time to time, I think of quitting. But I am doubtful about it because I need money. I also thought that maybe.. one day I’d get over it. I was wrong! As I stayed longer, my urge to quit becomes stronger.
Time to quit.
I couldn’t take it anymore. I gave my resignation letter. It was the best feeling ever. I was happy about it and I am excited of what life can offer me.
Right now, I am still on the third stage. I am beginning to explore my passion again and blogging helps me get through it. I can’t wait ’till phase 4.
If you are also experiencing this, remember that you are not alone.
