identity foreclosure: the quarter life crisis of a college athlete

Updated: Feb 21, 2021



@christina_chenault wrote an incredible article called “The Quarter Life Crisis of a College Athlete” which discusses how student athletes transfer into a different time of their lives. She talks about her personal experiences as an elite Track & Field athlete and the important topics of the cyclical lifestyle of an athlete, ego depletion, and identity foreclosure during the transition after college. Head over to our Facebook account to read the entire article, follow @christina_chenault, and read her beautiful piece on @flique.editorial.

“Although the life of a student-athlete is often pictured with attractive perks, it actually can be a psychologically damaging process, called identity foreclosure, that permeates within this culture or mindset and doesn’t fully manifest itself until the transition after college.

Identity foreclosure is when someone is committed “to an identity before one has meaningfully explored other options or engaged in exploratory behaviour, such as career exploration, talent development, or joining social clubs or interest groups.”
