Midlife Crisis Counselling


When a middle aged man has an affair with someone much younger than him, suddenly starts paying too much attention to his looks, buys an over-expensive impractical sports car or gets a divorce without any reason; we usually dismiss it as a midlife crisis. But, what exactly is a midlife crisis? Is it just another phase of life or is it rooted in something much deeper and needs a closer attention than it usually gets. To an outsider, it may seem like the person is just acting out. To the sufferer, it is a lot more than that. It is fear, regret, uncertainty, depression and anxiety all rolled into one.

Though midlife crisis is something that is associated with men, it is faced by countless women as well. In order to battle this mental health issue, it is important that you learn to recognise the signs of midlife crisis.

What are the signs of a Midlife Crisis?

Men and women are different individuals. They react differently to certain situations. When it comes to the signs of their mental health issues, those are different as well; though there may be a few overlapping ones. Depending on the individual (male or female), he or she may display a few or all of the tell-tale signs of midlife crisis mentioned below.

  • A change in their relationship status - A sudden change in the status of a relationship is a major indicator that a person is going through a midlife crisis. It can be an extramarital affair, a divorce, a break-up and/or beginning a new relationship. The person going through a midlife crisis seeks affection, attention and respect from a new person even if they’re receiving these things from their current partner. So, they either break-up with their current partner or get into an extramarital affair.
  • Mood swings and change in habit - A person who is facing a midlife crisis has to cope with a lot of different emotions. At times, things can get a bit confusing. Hence, they may suffer from severe mood swings where they change their mind about things constantly and even lash out on people around them. There is also a drastic change in their daily habits and routine.
  • Changing their career path - A midlife crisis makes a person question everything about their life, including their career choices. So, a person who’s experiencing this issue may look for a change in their career.
  • Obsessing over their own appearance - They may also pay extra attention to how they look and what clothes and accessories they’re wearing. Looking the best they can becomes extremely important to them.
  • Long spells of depression - Depression is quite rampant among people who are going through a midlife crisis.
  • Thoughts of death or dying - They may also be obsessed with the idea of human mortality and constantly think about death or dying.
  • Restlessness and disinterest in everything - Another big indicator is feeling restless or bored all the time and getting disinterested in everything that used to be interesting to them before; a cherished hobby, a job they were passionate about, sex, everything!
  • Putting blame on others - Going through a midlife crisis can be a very confusing experience. Like it has been mentioned above, the ones who are suffering often try to change many things in their life. And they often try to blame others or accuse their family/ friends of hurting them when they are stopped or questioned about all the drastic life-changes being undertaken by them.
  • Increased use or abuse of alcohol or drugs - If a person was already used to consuming alcohol or drugs leisurely, then this activity may go into overdrive and end up as an addiction when a person is going through a midlife crisis. If a person stayed away from alcohol and drugs before, then that person may start experimenting with these substances just for the sake of trying out something new and exciting; and in the process, end up being addicted to these things.
