Elders treat you as unproven theorems. Teenagers feel that you are too old to have you in their group. On the other hand, you seem to enjoy both cartoon and news. You can no longer eat whatever you wish to, without putting on weight. You hate your big nose, chin, forehead wrinkles, etc, etc. In truth, you look as good as you're ever going to look, so embrace it.
You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved so much could do such damage to you. You lie in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough that you want to get to know better. Or maybe you love someone but love someone else too and cannot figure out why you're doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person.
You go through the same emotions and questions over and over, and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about study loans, car loans, home loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender!
No one is ever alone in this state of crippling confusion and constant flow of failed expectations; everyone relates to it or has surpassed this fear and this age of mixed emotions. It is like being in the best of times and even the worst of times, trying as hard as you can, to figure this whole thing out - quarter life crises, I call it! :P
