The Mid-Life Crisis/Transition

"Midlife transition" is a natural stage that happens to many of us at some point (usually at about age 40, give or take 20 years).

Midlife transition can include:

  • Discontentment or boredom with life or with the lifestyle (including people and things) that have provided fulfillment for a long time

  • Feeling restless and wanting to do something completely different

  • Questioning decisions made years earlier and the meaning of life

  • Confusion about who you are or where your life is going

  • Daydreaming

  • Irritability, unexpected anger

  • Persistent sadness

  • Acting on alcohol, drug, food, or other compulsions

  • Greatly decreased or increased sexual desire

  • Sexual affairs, especially with someone much younger

  • Greatly decreased or increased ambition.
