I’m turning 24 in a couple of days. I have a feeling I’m undergoing QLC. A Wikipedia search defines this as having the following characteristics:

  • feeling “not good enough” because one can’t find a job that is at his/her 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 regarding present accomplishments
  • re-evaluation of close interpersonal relationships
  • disappointment with one’s job
  • nostalgia for university or college life
  • tendency to hold stronger opinions
  • boredom with social interactions
  • financially-rooted stress
  • loneliness
  • desire to have children
  • a sense that everyone is, somehow, doing better than you

Some of these certainly apply to me. If so, how do I get out of this crisis?
