According to new research, the quarter-life crisis is now the next big thing. The study shows youngsters around 25 year mark are showing unprecedented levels of anxiety as they stress about their future and life.

According to the LinkedIn research, young people are feeling the pressure as they put too much importance on finding their dream career.

 

Furthermore, the study finds, social media is also adding another layer of stress as it dominates young people’s lives, allowing them to compare their success to others.

According to the research, almost two thirds of 25 to 33-year-olds are more anxious about their careers than personal relationships and many millennials admit to feeling the pressure to succeed before 30.

Study says that the reason young people are so anxious about their careers is because of the uncertainty surrounding them, as well as the fear of missing out on what else life has to offer.

 

According to the LinkedIn findings, while there isn't one simple solution to getting over a quarter-life crisis, getting advice from people that have had similar experiences can help people when they are at a crossroad in their career.

Clinical social worker Debbi Carberry told The New Daily that social media is creating emotionally fragile young adults, adding that having 1000 friends of social media amounts to nothing and having three friends in real life is more beneficial.
