Quarter life crisis

Feel free to post your experience and thoughts with this matter, and advice too. :)
Have you ever go through this point of your life? Where you feel like you don't know what to do with your life and the world seems to fall apart?

Well I realized I have this crisis months after I graduated from college, until now. I read some articles and the signs are freaking accurate. I felt really pressured by other people. Also, I feel really devastated whenever I fail or even get rejected over and over and I was like "What's new anyway?" since I got used to it. When I know for a fact that I do something, give my all but in other people's eyes, it is NOT enough or they were NEVER enough. I also felt insecure because I thought other people have their lives figured out (though I learned that everyone almost go through this phase too) while here I am feeling lost. I also experienced thinking that it's already too late for me to achieve this and that and my time is running out, or I feel that I don't deserve my dreams because I think I lack in so many things in the eyes of others. I feel terrified. I also experienced crying episodes at night and I don't even know if this is already depression.

But I am holding on to one thing, that everything will work out in the end and that this too shall pass.

How about you?

According to Wikipedia:

The quarter-life crisis is a period of life ranging from twenties to thirties,in which a person begins to feel doubtful about their own lives, brought on by the stress of becoming an adult.

LOL Actually, I'm only in my teen years, but matters regarding going to college is overwhelming to me. I've never been far from my parents yet I want to go far for college. It's a bit scary and thinking about becoming an adult is also a bit stressful for me at times. I'm also learning to drive and will get my license soon. I still want to be a kid... lol

Yes-I periodically experience a panic attack where I think it's too late for me to achieve my dreams and I should just settle for a life in retail aka hell!!!!
But then I realized that it's never too late to turn my life around and go for my dreams. I'm not perfect and I didn't do things perfectly but there's always a way to get what you want out of life. You jut have to find it.
