But how do you know you’re in the middle of such a crisis? And how will you survive it?

Let us explore what this is all about and find out ways on how to deal with a midlife crisis.

What is Midlife Crisis?

Have you ever felt like your world is shattering and all your best-laid plans don’t make sense anymore? Like you have no idea what’s going on and you just decide on impulse without really thinking. Like you just want to give up and wait ‘till it all passes. But then, you wonder if you come out of it fine, that you will ever be confident and composed as you were.

This is how midlife crisis is.

More specifically, here are the tell-tale signs of midlife crisis.

  1. You are apathetic. You go on with life because you need to. You feel no driving force behind your every move.
  2. You find it hard to get out of bed, dread it even.
  3. You question things, wonder about ideas in your head, but don’t do anything about it.
  4. You don’t have a goal in mind. You simply take every day like you are supposed to.
  5. You feel like your life has no purpose.
  6. Your plans don’t work and you don’t make new ones.
  7. You feel jealous of others and think about them a lot.
  8. You are convinced that you are doomed to fail.
  9. You feel tired about everything.
  10. You are not satisfied with your success.
  11. You are willing to walk away from success.

When you experience these signs, you are definitely dealing with the midlife crisis. But you don’t have to succumb to it. You can deal with it effectively.

You simply need to focus on the positive things in life at the present. Put the past in the past and find a goal to achieve. Then pull yourself together and find ways to reach that specific goal.
