hi, whisper, welcome to our board. you definitely aren't alone here. i don't know if you're familiar with the term "quarter-life crisis", but it's a really common phenomonon for those of us in our late 20s/early 30s. i had one for a few years, i think i'm almost done with it (i'm 33), but my brother (31) and sister (29) are having theirs now. basically, you hit rock bottom and you think there is no way you'll ever get out. it's like a really long depression/anxiety phase where you start questioning yourself and everything you've done up to this point and you freak out about what to do next. breakups are common, job hopping is common, moving back home is common. i think it has to do with fear of becoming an adult or something like that. but it is just a phase and you will

you're welcome :) the journaling idea was just something to think about; i think it would be more of a personal outlet for your feelings than something for others to read (that would be more like a blog, i guess). you are definitely not alone. i'm glad you found us, too, and feel free to post whenever you need to.
