Ever pondered on why is it that 70 out of 100 percentage of the youths fall into depression immediately after graduating from tertiary institution?
I think it has a lot to do with diminishing expectations. I mean I graduated from college with so much energy to finally do something for myself. It was hard adapting to the change of not always having cash to do random stuff. I mean nobody told us anything about businesses in school. For someone like me, I did well in school. I read my eyes out to graduate so well only to come out to a society that appreciates affluence over intelligence or a degree from a university.
Then, another factor is the relationship pressure because most of us are saddled with making some crazy decisions on a choice of spouse especially since family wants us to. The cycle is almost unending.
It was quite depressing during my service year because I had no idea what to do with myself. I just had the same routine of going to work and coming back home and doing the next thing tomorrow and the day after tomorrow and it continues. I have a busy mind so I hate suppressing environments. It hurts trying to do something for yourself but yet you’re drowning in so much confusion.
