23-Year-Old Doesn’t Know What To Do After Graduating College, Gets 9 Pieces Of Advice From Different Professors

The 20’s is probably the toughest time in anyone’s life. Or at least that’s what people in their twenties think. Being crammed by so many seemingly life-changing choices and decisions, young adults often find themselves utterly confused. Many of us feel like this decade is the time when everyone should figure out their passions, aspirations, goals and of course, lay the foundations to their careers – basically figure out life.

However, sometimes it takes a lot longer than one decade to solve all of these things. So it’s not surprising why so many young people are so stressed out when they are pressured to decide what their life is going to look like right now.

The best advice in a situation like this is to let things figure out themselves. That’s the number one advice a recent grad student, Carrie, received from her professors.

After having to ask herself, “What to do next?” after finishing her studies and finding no answer, she decided to ask for advice.

Asking her professors to share their own wisdom seemed to be the best choice.

What’s even better, she decided to share their wisdom with others and her Twitter thread has been flooded with people expressing gratitude for this inspirational message during their own time of uncertainty.

Here’s how people reacted

Yeah, listening to your parents IS worse. After all, they have no wisdom, because they have no life experience, they don't really care for your wellbeing... and they certainly haven't done anythinh for you since you were born. Those selfish b@#$%! Listening to them is the worst. Just like the professor said

It's hard to get past the authors handclapping over how inspirational she is. Or how much money and education her advisors have. However, asking advice from elders is always a good idea. They may not say what you would like to hear, and not everything is going to sound like Live, Laugh, Love. But, searching for wisdom from others paths can only benefit.

If you don't know what you want to do with your life, college is a lousy place to try to figure it out. (A lot of people disagree with that, saying that college is a fine place to park people when society does not need their services.)
