People in their 20s and early 30s experience periods of uncertainty and anxiety during which they question their goals, plans, and even relationships.
"Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice."
- Steve Jobs
Are you at a fork in the road?
Are you considering switching to another field but are afraid of starting over?
Are you in a long-term relationship and wondering whether you should break up or get married?
Do you feel you “should” have accomplished certain things by this point in life?
Are you starting to wonder who your real friends are?
There are a lot of decisions to be made in your twenties and thirties - what type of job to get, where to live, whether to start a family…It can be a daunting time! Pair that with social media making it so easy to compare our lives to others, it's no wonder so many of us feel anxious and lost.
Many people experience a quarter-life crisis - a time of confusion and uncertainty about their future. If this is you, know that you are not alone - many feel just as lost and uncertain as you do. This is a time of great change and it can be hard to adjust and adapt.
While there is absolutely no need to rush any major decisions, it can be helpful to talk to friends, family, and mentors who can support you and give their perspective. If you want to go deeper, our therapists are available to help you learn coping skills and find your true identity and passions.
