lost in my early 20's - hannahg

This quote was added by hannahgustin
They weren't kidding when they said that you go through a quarter-life crisis. Who knew that after you graduate college and have to get a real job and be a real adult life would be so hard. It's all paying taxes, living paycheck to paycheck. Crying over childhood trauma and nursing a bottle of wine at 2 AM. I'm trying to be the best version of me and utterly failing. I feel like it's not supposed to be this difficult.

Life is not meant to be easy. It can be but the normal program your soul is invested into your dear body is to grow the soul closer to God, in this world outside the Garden of Eden, it is thorn-filled, painful, and in the end, deadly. Develop awe, fear even, of God, closeness and love for God and one way needed to do that is to love and appreciate creation and the highest part of creation: other fellow humans. You can't do that when you don't love your work, your career, your livelihood. So adapt that come to love it, so your are a glory to us all.

IMO all the years of school are only for the purpose of conditioning us to accept a lifetime of mind-numbing work and an utterly pointless existence. If people aren't willing to accept that kind of life, then our society collapses. For most people, it works. They're able to integrate themselves successfully as a lemming of the adult world. But for those of us who aren't able to conform, we have to find another way to live, because the 9-5 life will be complete misery until we literally drink ourselves to death. I think there are 2 ways to go about this. One is to lower your standards of necessity so that you don't have to work so much to survive. The other is to find an alternative way to earn a living, such as starting a business, Forex trading, etc. Something that will require a relatively short time of intense effort, in exchange for long term financial security and time freedom.
