An Overview of Midlife Transition & Crisis
The term midlife crisis brings up many images. In America, it brings up deriding images of a person buying a red sports car, daydreams of flings, broken marriages and people acting like a child again.
A midlife transition can be a positive experience. In reality, midlife change represents a deeper possibility for a person to become their dreams. However, those dreams are harder to realize within a nonsupportive society and without a clear personal understanding of the experience. People often end up hurting themselves in their process of transition. A person’s life carries a lot of momentum from the past that tumbles them about heedlessly upon trying to transition to be something new.
