A midlife crisis occurs in people of middle age (approximately 45 to 65 years). Typically, one is struggling with some sense of frustration at the trajectory of one’s life, a sudden challenge to self-identity or self-confidence, or with an experience of one’s own mortality. Popular representations of a midlife crisis usually involve rejecting some level of personal responsibility in favor of pursuing something impractical but more fun, even if it has negative repercussions on long-established relationships, jobs, and lifestyles. But for others, a midlife crisis can bring about debilitating depression or intense bouts of anxiety. Regardless of its presentation, a midlife crisis can also be the catalyst for a search for greater meaning and perspective.
