Abstract

Krisis seperempat abad merupakan fenomena psikologis yang akhir-akhir ini menjadi perbincangan hangat di kalangan para millennial. Krisis seperempat abad erat kaitannya dengan permasalahan dewasa awal yang mengalami perasaan cemas, bingung, disorientasi, dan kehilangan tujuan dalam hidupnya. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk membahas isu krisis seperempat abad melalui tokoh utama, Mona Mireles, dalam novel Mona at Sea (2021), dengan menggunakan pendekatan psikologis. Data dalam penelitian ini berupa monolog dan dialog yang mencerminkan isu krisis seperempat abad. Hasil penelitian mengungkapkan bahwa; (1) tokoh utama, Mona Mireles, telah mengalami krisis seperempat abad yang ditandai dengan beberapa gejala seperti kesulitan dalam mengambil keputusan, perasaan cemas, kehilangan arah, ragu, dan terus-menerus membandingkan diri; (2) gejala-gejala tersebut disebabkan oleh beberapa penyebab, yaitu kekecewaan atau frustasi yang berkaitan dengan karir pekerjaan dan kehidupan percintaan; (3) untuk mengatasi quarter life crisisnya, Mona terbukti telah mengalami beberapa tahapan krisis, salah satunya adalah tahap pendirian kembali sebagai tahap terakhir, dimana Mona pada akhirnya mampu mengatasi krisisnya dengan memiliki motivasi yang lebih kuat, keyakinan dalam diri, dan tujuan dalam hidup.
