The Truth About “Midlife Crisis”

The Truth About “MidLife Crisis”


Now that I am 46, I finally understand the whole term, “mid-life crisis”


When I was younger, I really didn’t get it


And until I went through, what I would NOW understand as my own “mid-life crisis”, I need to share with you some very important information that may just help you understand better and NOT feel like you are losing your mind


First let’s talk about the definition


Webster defines this crisis as follows:


midlife crisis. noun. : a period of emotional turmoil in middle age caused by the realization that one is no longer young and characterized especially by a strong desire for change.


Others would say this


“A midlife crisis is often seen as a period of self-reflection, questioning, and emotional turmoil that can come in middle adulthood — usually happening for people in their 40s and 50s. The journey through a midlife crisis often unfolds in three stages: the trigger, the search for meaning, and acceptance.” defined it as this:


“The definition of a midlife crisis is a period of transition in life where someone struggles with their identity and self-confidence. It happens anywhere from 40 years old to 60 years old and affects men and women. A midlife crisis is not a disorder but is mainly psychological.”


I can definitely say in my early 40s is when I hit a period of self reflection, questioning my purpose and had a helluva lot of emotional turmoil


I had lost myself, lost my parents, my older brother, many friends….as people started dying, it also forced me to look at how much time I had left on this earth and wanted to course correct


I literally didn’t like the person I saw in the mirror.


While some people might go and buy a ferrari or buy a new home or new wardrobe at this point, I chose to have a spiritual awakening instead 🙂


But here’s the kicker


After I went through 2.5 years of healing and actually DID remember who I truly am and reconnected with my life purpose, I also found out some really important information about roughly WHY so many go through a huge shift or “crisis” between ages 40-60


I saw what I am about to share with you in myself, my husband (who is 7 years older than me), as well as in many of our clients (the average age of our clients is roughly 40-50 years old)


While the definitions above is mostly reflecting on the “physical realm” and “psychological” (although not a disorder or mental illness), I am here to tell you that this mid life crisis is anything BUT psychological in nature


There is so much more to the story


I will discuss this today in both my blog and here on my podcast

There is so much more to our Midlife crisis than emotional and psychological

So if you only address those two areas, you are missing the point and it is why I believe so many people live their lives feeling unfulfilled
