At mid-life, there is a second struggle with identity, parallel to the one that occurs in adolescence: "Who is the real me, anyway?" Uneasiness about one's choices naturally surface at this time. One becomes more acutely aware of what has been left out — is there still time left to squeeze it in? This is a time when career or marital dissatisfaction is often experienced. Perhaps the children are getting older and no longer in need of as much attention and focus. Maybe your current career is no longer challenging and satisfying, or you are feeling overwhelmed by the demands of the "lifestyle" you have built in the last 20 years. While we often think of a mid-life crisis as the acknowledgement of the loss of youth, it is also an opportunity to find deeper meaning and new challenges in one's life.
