The midlife crisis usually occurs around 40-55, but actually develops when your view and ideals of what you’ve been led to believe in the first part of your life doesn’t match up with your current reality. It’s a process that we burnout from any type of diversity, loss of job, loss of reputation, divorce, death of a loved one or illness occurs. We become dissatisfied with life and we start asking questions about ourselves and what we want and don’t want anymore.
In the first half of our lives we listen to our parents and serve a social agenda. We develop sufficient ego strength to leave parents, venture out into the world, commit to obligations, partner up, serve citizenship roles, create security, status and conform to what is expected. We give our freedom away to others and act in accordance to societal expectations and neglect what’s important to us.
The investments we make in the first half of our lives ultimately betray us in the second half of life. As Carl Jung, once said “What was great in the morning will no longer do in the afternoon, and what was true in the morning will become a lie in the evening.”
