Suffering From a Quarter Life Crisis

While in the middle of my graduate program, I felt like I had come to a crossroads and I had no idea in which direction I was headed. What am I going to do with my degree when I finish school? What career path should I take? How do I get my finances in order? What do I want in my personal life? Who am I? What do I want? How do I get it?

From the outside, I was living a single gals dream (and I still am) but I felt so confused and lost on the inside. I am a Christian and Christianity teaches us to have faith in God and lean not on our own understanding. I believed and practiced those things but I still wrestled with all of those thoughts and questions mentioned above.  While on a trip to Barnes and Noble to look for a schoolbook, there was this book literally sticking out on a shelf directly in front of me. The book was called 20 Something, 20 Everything: A Quarter-Life Woman’s Guide to Balance and Direction by Christine Hassler.

20 Something, 20 Everything

Needless to say, I bought the book and read it cover to cover…in days.  Hassler shares stories of young women who have had the same questions as myself and notes that women tend to scrutinize every aspect of their own lives. One poignant moment for me was her statement about keeping things in perspective and denying a need to keep up with the Joneses.  I embodied Christine’s “twenties triangle” theory; who am I? What do I want? How do I get it? I was the exact description of this theory; unsettled and struggling to reassess my position within this so-called triangle.

This book has become a valuable resource and I recommend it to all of my girlfriend’s who are facing some of the same life dilemmas. Only you have the power to change your situation and most times that starts with changing your thinking and gaining an understanding. This resource has helped me to do all of those things and more and hopefully it can do the same for you.  This book is truly for women of all ages. If you decide to pick up this great book, let me know your thoughts and please share in the comments section below or email me at askMeaganElyce@gmail.com. Happy reading!
