I feel so lost. I feel like I'm going to explode. everything feels off. like I was doing okay but the depression seems to be back. maybe I'm having a quarter life crisis? 😅 I'm 23 and haven't done half the things I've wanted. I hate feeling so weak and chaotic. I don't know what I'm trying to say I know you've answered many questions like this.. I just feel so lost
23 is so young… I don’t know why we’re made to believe that we’re supposed to have it together at this really early stage in our lives, but our twenties are for fucking up, for exploring our passions & priorities, for LIVING and learning and growing. Why do you have to do all of the things you wanted already? You’ve got your whole life to. You don’t have to squish it all in under ¼th of your whole experience. Give yourself permission to fuck up, to feel terribly depressed and then find the right ways to pull yourself out of it. Give yourself permission to not know what you want or where you are in life. Give yourself permission to BE lost. Wander around aimlessly then. You’ll stumble into something that feels right. I think that is what’s supposed to happen. I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing with my life and for a long time I felt frequently anxious and depressed over that thought (and I’m sure I will again) but something shifted recently and I feel free because I don’t know. I’m young, the world is open to me. I don’t have to have it all figured out right now. I don’t have to do all of the things I want to do right now. I have time. I’m setting semi-distant goals. I’m living and wandering around and I’m gonna run into something good. So will you.
