Quarter Life Crisis and How it Hit Me

I must say this year have been so different for me. Different in a way that my priorities and views in life had completely changed to a new level. Birthdays always excite me because that means people will be greeting me, celebrations and gifts. This year, I felt like I wasn’t in the mood for something fancy or loud. I even did a social experiment where I removed my birthday from Facebook to see who will remember it naturally.  And yup, there were just a few of them! I felt like my heart was filled enough. Somehow, there is a more emotional touch when you feel that you are remembered than being bombarded by Facebook greetings from those who just realized it is your birthday because of the notifications.

This year I also focused on a lot more important things. And when I say important things- that means adulting stuff like financial goals and personal improvement goals. I made myself a digital dream board on the website called Trello so I can have a glimpse of what I want to target for both short and long term periods.

In terms of beauty and skincare, 25 is a tricky number. You are in between age categories that define the type of skin care you need to use. As for me, being 25 is a step closer to aging skin and I came to realize that I need to start taking a second look on products that has anti aging properties. Well to be honest, I am still being mistaken as a teenager and I want to keep it that way.

Lastly, I started putting away all negativity. I am a worrier and I get stressed a lot. This year, I felt more calm, more organized and more prepared. I think that’s how quarter life is. It’s just really a mentality, but the actions and results will still depend on you. It will come early or maybe on a later time, but one thing is for sure- you will be evolved to a better version of yourself, the one you always wanted to be.

Don’t be afraid of what’s in the future. Quarter life crisis is a way for you to reassess your life and for you to think better of the things you want to do moving forward.

  1. Oh hi there Quarter-life-crisis sister (that sounds weird and confusing, but I know you get what I mean πŸ˜‰
    I’ve experienced the same thing. Last year, on my 24th birthday, I was wondering why I haven’t got any birthday greeting from friends and some special people in my life on Facebook. I then noticed that my birth date was on private. It made me realize that in today’s digital age, its easy for other people to rely on technology for information compared to our old school moms and lolas who remember special dates by heart.
    This year on my 25th birthday, my birth date was on public. But it just felt taxing for me to reply to those people one by one, knowing that most of them did not “truly” remember my day, but only because FB prompted them too.
    That same day, I did not open my account. And haven’t logged in yet till now. I’m on an FB detox (but that’s another story.)

    Luck you for always being mistaken for a teenager! πŸ™‚
    I also get mistaken to be younger, but there are also people who thinks I’m already 28-29. -.-
    Makes me wanna ditch my eyeglasses.

    Anyway, I also noticed that you don’t post much about eye creams. Guess you don’t need them badly yet? I was gonna ask for a great eye cream.

      Thanks for reading. πŸ™‚
      You know mikki galang? I attended her event last 2016 and according to her (and her derma), eye creams are a waste of money. It doesn’t really help!!! I know it’s quiet shocking but since then I never got interested with buying – they can also be so expensive you know!!!
