I would love to hear your thoughts on it.


Does anything like this really happen or it's just a phrase in common culture?

How does it affect an individual?

What are the ways to improve your situation? How to improve it for your elder relatives, like for your father, uncle or friends?

oh, i absolutely believe it happens. haven't known anyone personally to go through it yet though, but most of my friends are younger than me. actually, come to think of it, i do know a guy who might be going through a mid-life crisis right now.

i think the reason it happens is that people spend most of their lives having certain expectations about how things will be down the line. then they get to a certain age, they realize they're not getting any younger, they see life is not what they expected it to be, and they freak out.

To a T. But this thing might happen at any age.
