Quarter life crisis

On my 28th birthday, I had a quarter life crisis. I was depressed and questioned everything about my life. It didnt feel like I was where I should be or planned to be. I was sick! 

I think we get emotionally sick partly because we hold to what and who we thought we should be. I have a definition of me in my twenties and I like it but as a person shortly entering her thirties, can I really hold on to this definition? Is it even possible? It’s too hard. Another thing I have noticed is that the definition of success changes greatly. In my twenties my goals were pretty clear; progress to the next year, finish grad school, buy a car, get a job, buy a house, get a masters etc. In my thirties however this definition doesn’t hold anymore. I would like to find this definition but the process is very scary. A friend of mine said “rachel what you need is to really be honest with yourself, redine it the best way you see fit”. 

I don’t know a lot but I am committed to the process. I am trusting that I am right where I need to be. 

Learning still
