Worth a Read- Quarter life crisis

While many of us are now past quarter of our lifespan,here is something I want to share ( ofcourse I read it somewhere, my thinking isn't good so much ) which just explains our struggle in 1st quarter of  the "life".

Here is some excerpts of our quarter life crisis :-

It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that there are many things about yourself that you didn't know and may not like. You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.

You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don't recognize is that they are realizing that too, and aren't really cold, catty, mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.

You look at your job... and it is not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.

Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn't. One minute, you are insecure and then the next, secure.

You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly, change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life, but soon realize that the past is drifting further and further away, and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.

You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you. Or you lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you're doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person. One night stands and random hook ups start to look cheap. Getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic. You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself... and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender!

What you may not realize is that every one reading this relates to it.
We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out. Send this to your friends if you feel like ... maybe it will help someone feel like they aren't alone in their state of confusion...

We call it the "Quarter-life Crisis".

>>when I read it ..I just said one thing " wow" ...what a brilliant concise review of early stage of our  life. Whoever wrote it , I just want to say " Hats Off mate ".

Long Overdue

See the two smiling faces in the side-pic, please don't misinterpret the smile. This is the proof of our impeccable friendship which had seen many crest and trough since past 6 years (we joined our graduation college together). We first met during the starting day of our college on hostel stairs, came across during the regular meeting of our college group, shared some unforgettable moments of unforgettable ragging, and enjoyed some teasing moments with our other friends (in which some backfired). However all of a sudden don't know what happened, after 1st year we didn't enjoy like we used to do in 1st year.

After that everything was just casual, nothing was special in our talks and activities. Nevertheless every bad day comes with an end. So does came 3rd year, the other guy in the pic was just sitting above my head (he got 2nd floor room just above me in hostel) and after that 1st year friendship started coming back to track but it never came back in full race; something was missing and that's why we never want to rejuvenate our college life again.

I left college on 25th April 2009. From that date to till today (the day this pic had been taken) we were both waiting to meet again and that's the reason for the million dollar smile.

Fact: - The person in the TEE is "Samtxneo" -author of this blog a.k.a. Sanjay Anand Mishra and in the shirt is "Munna"- my college friend from the very 1st day a.k.a. Rahul Khare
