20-Something's Life Crisis

I don't know about any of you but if feels like whoever wrote this creeped inside my psyche and said exactly how I feel. I could not have said this better myself.
You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.
You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met, and some of the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you don't recognize is that they are realizing that too, and aren't really mean or insincere, but that they are just as confused as you.
You look at your job... and it's not even close to what you thought you would be doing, or maybe you are looking for a job and realize that you are going to have to start at the bottom and that scares you.
Your opinions have gotten stronger. You see what others are doing and find yourself judging more than usual because suddenly you realize that you have certain boundaries in your life and are constantly adding things to your list of what is acceptable and what isn't.
One minute you are secure and the next minute you're not. You may feel alone and scared and confused.
Suddenly change is the enemy and you try to cling on to the past with dear life, but soon you realize that the past is drifting further and further away, and there's nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.
You get your heart broken and wonder how someone could do so much damage to you. Or you lay 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 you can't figure out why you are doing this because you know that you aren't a bad person.
One night stands and random hook ups start to look cheap. Getting fucked up every night and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic.
You go through the same questions over and over, and talk to people about that same topics because you cant seem to make a decision on anything.
You worry about loans, money, the future and making a life for yourself...
What you may not think is that everyone reading this can relate in some way. We are all having the best times of our lives right now and also some of the worst... But we are ALL trying to figure the same things out!
