Feeling a little lost? You’re not alone. More people are going through the so-called quarter-life crisis than ever before. With social media making it easy for us to compare our lives to our peers, it’s no wonder why so many of us are feeling stuck.
If this sounds like you, here are some ways you can get through a quarter-life crisis:
We all know that we only post the best parts of our lives on social media. So why do we still look enviously at our peers when they’re showing off their relationships, careers, travels, and kids?
If you really want to get through a quarter-life crisis, it’s time to ditch social media. That doesn’t mean you can’t login occasionally and check your messages, but you need to stop the endless scrolling, Facebook stalking, and mentally comparing your lives to the people you went to high school with.
Get some guidance
Sometimes, we don’t know what we want from our lives until we’re older. And that’s OK. A numerologist can come in handy here, as they can help give you some guidance. At the very least, this is a fun way to think about your life and consider some options you may not have been aware of.
If you’re starting to feel depressed and anxious, it may be time to speak with a professional. A licensed therapist or counselor can help you pinpoint what’s holding you back and give you some strategies to help you get through this time in your life.
Remove ‘should’ from your vocabulary
How often do you use the word ‘should’ when you’re talking about your life? “I should have never done this major. I should have a better job. I should have gotten married by now. I should have kids.” It never ends.
One of the best things about our generation is that there really is no one way to do things. Some people are delaying marriage and children, some are travelling, some are career focused, and some are stay-at-home parents. It’s your life. Remove the expectations and enjoy what you’re doing now.
Invest in yourself
Once you’ve decided how you’d like to change your life, it’s time to invest in yourself. This could involve creating a website for your brand new business, getting a life coach, going back to school, or going backpacking. Whatever it is, you deserve to puts some time, money, and effort into your own life. These are the types of investments that pay off in the long run.
