I'm 23, but why do I feel 100?
Recently, I lost my job, but I've been actively looking and focusing on my writing. For some strange reason, I've been feeling like I'm just lost. Like I'm doing too much, but not enough. I don't know why I feel this way. I'm just tired of not having a steady income. I feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders and I need money soon, but it's not coming in fast enough. I just feel 100.
There are lots of issues here! First off, you just lost your job. That can be a tumultuous time both emotionally and financially.Try to learn from your mistakes if there were any, otherwise don't dwell! Everyone is bound to lose a job here and there. Don't let it get you down or cause you to doubt your abilities and your worth.
Any way, your old job is in the past. I suggest you put every effort into finding another job now. Even if it is not in your field, a new job makes us feel great and gives us purpose. You learn a lot and meet new people. It can help us burst out of whatever ruts we were in socially, emotionally, mentally, physically, doing our old job day after day and seeing the same people every day. Your new job will also take care of many of the current financial worries.
Beyond that, you have a dream, goals beyond your day to day life. Once you are engaged in steady employment, you can start directing your energy and effort toward making those dreams real. Right now, get a job hipster! Seriously, I hope this advice helps. I mean it all with love.
Strange but realistic.
Well, it depends on the level of responsibility you have. We live in a generation where age is no longer defined by the number of years, but defined by one's ability and capability, which in turn increases our responsibility. Knowledge is what defines age, that's why God can bring something out of nothing.
Looking at the story of David in the bible, he conquered a man, called Goliath. Goliath was literarily 10 times David's age, and so is his stature. What do you think made David to make such a sophisticated choice/decision? His Knowledge. He has grown in knowledge and wisdom, but his physical strength just seems abstract. Don't forget! God was also with him. [ Job 12:12
"Wisdom is with aged men, With long life is understanding"]
"I'm 23, but why do I feel 100?" also depends on what you've been exposed to, which could be of good or bad. Our experiences in life increases as time passes by, but it's either this experience adds to us or even takes away from the little we have. But, the bible says in James 1:2 "Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds."
Our challenges sometimes can make us feel old at a young age, but just understand and believe that its just for a little while. God Bless You!

Hey all,Just wanted to talk about what I did today. I quit my job to go in a completely different direction with my life. I'm a little scared because it was a good job, good people and good hours and I hope I won't regret it. The thing is, I am not happy with what I'm doing. ...

Yep...it's true. I give great advice, encourage others, offer support, stay devoted, remain committed, work like hell (darn, I cussed) to sustain my committment, and say positive things. I write articles about reminders of new love in a marriage and publish love letters I got from spouse...
