Should I quit my life and become a hermit?
Hi! I'm a 24 year old dude here (nearing 25). I have destroyed my career by quitting my master's degree before completing it. I made a very terrible and foolish mistake just because I felt extremely terrible symptoms. I still have Bachelor's degree (BA). I took Psychology and Anthropology in the final year of my Bachelor's program. I studied English, Anthropology and Psychology in 1st and 2nd year of my Bachelor's program. I think I won't be able to get any job and remained unemployed.
I still don't know what should I do in my life. I don't know where I am really good at. I am really confused about my career. I am going to be 25 this month and it is too late for me. Will I get employed for the first time at this point of age? I'm also giving a lot of stress to my parents too. I am not able to find a way.
There are religions like Hinduism and Buddhism in my country (India). Some people leave everything behind and choose to become a monk or hermit. Sometimes I feel like giving up everything and become a hermit in Hindu pilgrimage cities. I also have to make compromises like giving up internet, meat, enjoyment and pleasures. My relatives and friends will get shocked if I leave everything behind.
Living as a hermit is not something to be considered lightly, which is why I recommend against it. It calls for a radical adjustment in one's way of life and an intense dedication to living alone. Being a hermit has many benefits, such as less work, more time for thinking, and fewer interruptions, but there are also risks to think about. To become a hermit, you have to give up social interaction, new experiences, and the chance to make deep connections with other people. One must think long and hard about the benefits and drawbacks of such a choice before committing to it.
