When does a midlife crisis come and how to survive it?
How does a midlife crisis manifest?
A midlife crisis in women usually occurs after 35 years. On this segment of life, both men and women get the feeling that the best years are over, because youth has passed. People lose their sense of what lies ahead. They do not see prospects, do not know what to do next.
When a person enters a phase of a negative emotional state, he often has a need for cardinal changes. For this reason, some of the men leave the family, preferring to lead the life of a single person. This behavior can also occur in women.They begin to think that a happy family is in the past. Adult children have moved away from the mother, and there is no past passion for the husband. No one knows exactly how many marriages broke up due to ignoring the psychological problems of partners related to age-related changes.
A crisis can be expressed as dissatisfaction with work and career. Equally, men and women are beginning to be unhappy with the level of wages, the number of years spent on promotion, the total result of efforts. To overcome the zone of psychological discomfort associated with professional activities, many decide to quit their previous job.
In some cases, people after 35 years of age achieve great success when they start their own business. Sometimes they start building a new career from scratch or lose their desire to work at all. As you can see, such a person’s condition can adversely affect not only his mental health, but also the level of financial well-being.
For many women and men of 35 - 45 years of age, isolation is characteristic; they stop communicating with friends and relatives. Lost "taste for life", the joy of communication.Emotions are not as bright as before. People lose excitement, enthusiasm, internal energy. They cannot understand why such changes happen to them, and what to do with it. In addition, they can darken the life of resentment of friends, who have been given less attention.
Unlike men, women add complexes about their appearance. After 35 years, the first signs of aging are most noticeable. Wrinkles appear. The representatives of the fair sex hormones are changing, which causes excess weight. Any woman, even one who has not been affected by the mid-life crisis, suffers a similar condition. If psychological problems caused by a crisis are added, then aging is transferred even more painfully. Ladies believe that they no longer attract men.
