    Default Do you believe you’ve experienced a “quarter-life crisis” in your 20's or 30's?

    I got this question in a survey..
    Here's the question

    Do you believe you’ve experienced what psychologists would call a “quarter-life crisis” in your twenties or thirties?

    This is the feeling that you aren’t satisfied with where you are in your life and time is running out. This can cause anxiety or depression.

    As a Christian what should be our response?

    Yep lol

    That's what I called it myself after I turned 30.

    I realised I haven't "done anything" with this life I've been given in regards to work.
    For some reason I've always been afraid to pursue my interests and I allow procrastination to set in.
    Even now as a Christian I find I struggle to do the things I have desires in my heart to do because I think, is this God's will for me? When I go in prayer, ask and hear nothing I get anxious.
    I'm slowly getting over that but yeh...So the Christian response? I don't know? Continue to submit your life to God, do what is right, submit your plans to God and see what He will do.

    Are you asking because you feel the same way?

    But now I am really learning to allow God to move freely in my life..

    Thank you again for sharing your story

    Im going through a real midlife crisis now. I already threw my whole life away and started this completely insane life. Nobody knows what came over me or what I have been doing. It even has me moving to another state and making life long investments. Im having fun and before this thread I thought gave up and lost it and started chasing my real dreams, but maybe thats the same thing.

    Thank you for sharing bro. Let's just keep asking God.

    I believe it's God's way to re-direct us.

    I feel like I'm have a quarter life crisis.

    But on a good note, that means I'll be living until my 130s yay!

    My entire 20’s experience was a crisis.

    I can definitely identify with the feeling of "I'm not getting any younger...what do I have to show for my life??"
    I feel like that a few times a week....
    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.
