Your life gets better during midlife. It is a transition period (midlife crisis). Midlife crisis and its stages help you to make an easier and smoother transition, to accept this natural stage in your life.
After a period of hardship and reflection it enables you to learn how to be and stay happy and healthy. To fullfill your potential. So your life will be awesome. And you know: you can make your dreams come true.
Either you choose to be happy or you stay unhappy and dissatisfied with your life. It’s up to you.like women, men encounter a phase in their life when their hormones start changing. Mostly between 40 and 60 the production of testosterone (male hormone) slowly declines slowly. You will start noticing changes in your body.
Besides that, there is a mental shift. Often thoughts pop up like: Is this all there is? Why am I not happy with my life.
Why am I not satisfied with the things I have? Why do I have the feeling my life is over?
I have a lovely family, a good job. Why do I have the feeling I no longer have choices. I have everything, yet I don’t feel happ, but Idon’t know how to solve this problem.
What you do not realize yet is that it is a natural process and part of life.
You might not be aware or might not know about this phase in your life, the so called midlife crisis.
YOU ARE STILL IN DENIAL
Sometimes when you get up in the morning and you look in the mirror you think:Who is this man? Do I know him? Is that me?
Suddenly you see wrinkles, a tired face, a declining hairline. And when you look down you see your belly is bulging. Your waistline is expanding.
You feel tired and stress most of the time. You are not eager to work on the job you have been doing for a long time.
In this period of denial you have a strong feeling of:
Now or never. It will be too late to do all the things on my bucket list.
You don’t want to talk about your feelings and denial, because for men that’s not done. And besides, men don’t have a midlife crisis or depression.
If you talk about it with your wife she will get upset. Your friends will laugh at you. Your doctor will give you anti-depressants or send you to hospital for a medical checkup. You might have a heart condition.
So you become withdrawn. And you are not very approachable for your wife and children. You are often unresponsive.
But don’t worry. All of this is to let you understand you are still denying you are entering into a new phase. A transition period is starting. And just so you know: soon you will enter the second phase.
You will become very angry
But remember there is light at the end of the tunnel. Your life will be better after midlife crisis.
