It used to be that people looked at where they were when they were 40 at mid-life and said I hate where I am. Today people look at where they are when they’re 30.
This is a sentiment Think Out Loud producer Julie Sabatier says she identifies with. Julie says:
It’s not something I am currently going through, but something I feel like I went through recently in my life and something I’ve seen a lot of my friends in their 20’s and 30’s struggle with. (Some have a quarter-life crisis, others have a third-life crisis). The guests and callers were really thoughtful and that made the show.
When our intern at the time, Sam Sanders, first pitched this idea I remember a lot of us thinking “hmm… I’m not sure…” We were clearly proven wrong.
Are you in the midst of a quarter-life crisis? How’d it happen to you? And what are you doing to get out?
