When you're in your twenties you shouldn't have anything to complain about. You're young, you have the freedom to do whatever you want, and you have your whole life ahead of you. Right? So why are so many of us feeling confused and disappointed with the "real world?" I must say ever since college I've been wondering, what am I doing with my life, what do I really want to do and when is this or that going to happen? Lately I've been consuming myself with questions, worries, and crazy ideas. Then I came across these books and realized that I'm not alone.
I never knew the term quarter-life crisis existed until I read 20 Something, 20 Everything. This is a great book that helps you think about what you want while explaining why you are going through these growing pains. If you like exercises, this book has plenty. I loved the reading but I must say I was a little overwhelmed with all the exercises per chapter. You almost have to do them to get the full effect of the book.
Right now I am reading It's A Wonderful Lie, a collection of stories based on the experiences of twenty-something women discovering themselves while learning to enjoy life. I am REALLY enjoying this book, it's fun, touching, and some stories are hilarious.
I'm curious to know how many of you are twenty-somethings who are going through the motions of being a twenty-something? What about my thirty-somethings and up, did you experience a quarter-life crisis? Please share your thoughts on this topic.
