Somewhere in the middle…
You are at a stage today where you have achieved most of what you wanted, and yet you always feel there is much more to life, than what you had been doing. You job feels like losing its charm, and your partner don’t have anything new to say. You feel you can do much more, and don’t see a direction, or a target to move forward to. Even the most pleasurable activities seem to lose their appeal.
You face multiple questions inside you, and you feel bored to hell. You feel you are going nowhere, and are going there fast.
Is this all what midLife is all about?
These feelings are normal in middle ages. You are not the only one. Each one of us, to an extent, pass through these feelings and times.
You have spend your teens and youth doing what best you could do and what appealed most to you and your situations. You have gathered a lot of learning and formed a lot of beliefs. And now, at this stage, you swing betweens oodles of knowledge and bouts of self-doubt. Each day, week and month seems like taking you nowhere new.
A storm within
Boredom and tiredness seems to be setting in. And you feel the desire to do something new that excites you and takes you further in life. Sometimes you do see the goals clearer, and sometimes, they seem to fade away.
You may go extravagant on shopping, or give more attention to your health and how you look. You start focusing more on your image, Or you just start losing interest in it all. It happens.
Often, you are faced with multiple internal questions – Where am I going? What am I doing? Is this what I want to to? Do you need an Image change, or a career change?
How do most people cope
One of the simplest way to win this internal battle is use your years of learning, loads of experience to redefine your goals of life. You may be inclined to take a long break, a vacation a sabbatical, and yet coming back unsettled. You may rediscover love and passion, you experiment with your ways of life, you may change routines and do much more. You may suddenly become more religious. The list of changes is endless. But one thing is for sure – The changes do set in.
Easing the storm
Seeking help from someone who understands midLife helps you see the unclear path with clearer eyes. Getting meaningful help during a midlife crisis can save you a lot of stress, trouble and depression. It helps happiness set in, and goals becoming clearer. An unbiased help is a boon in such a stage. A holding hand that guides you through midlife crisis without creating any biases is the best help you can help.
