QLC

August 12, 2008

So then today this colleague of mine walked upto me and started telling me about this disease he is suffering from.I was a bit surprised because he is generally on the quieter side and always engrossed in his options strategies and his techincal charts. Basically this is what he is currently going through

  • feeling “not good enough” because can’t find a job that is at his academic/intellectual level
  • frustration with relationships, the working world, and finding a suitable job or career
  • confusion of identity
  • insecurity regarding the near future
  • insecurity concerning long-term plans, life goals
  • insecurity regarding present accomplishments
  • re-evaluation of close interpersonal relationships
  • disappointment with one’s job
  • nostalgia for university, college, high school or elementary school life
  • tendency to hold stronger opinions
  • boredom with social interactions
  • loss of closeness to high school and college friends
  • financially-rooted stress (overwhelming college loans, unanticipatedly high cost of living, etc.)
  • loneliness
  • desire to have children
  • a sense that everyone is, somehow, doing better than you

Dang!! That’s exactly what I am going through.

Which is nothing but ย  ‘Quarter-life crisis’ …

So now my frustrations and worries are not mine alone??? I yearn for exclusivity..
