A Thought...




I just had this Sudden Thought at 3.30 am...






What IS Midlife Crisis? Does anyone have any idea? Does it only happen to Men? What about Women? Have you experienced it before? At what age is called "Midlife"? Mid-30's? 40? Mid-40's? Come! Come give your 10-20 cents! I wanna know the answer(s) because I am...

I think it's a bit overblown, this mid-life crisis, in movies, books, lectures, notes, songs, poems... I have no idea what it is!
My 5 cents.. for the moment.

I often experience midday crisis when it's 12 noon, I'm hungry and don't know what to eat. sometimes I get midnight crisis when it's late and I'm still not sleepy.

hmmmm... midlife... I still have a long way to go before that! *denial* *denial*

I have midheight crisis - not tall enough, but not short leh.

I have also midincome crisis - not rich enough, but not poor oso.

Other crisises I have, midfunny crisis, midlame crisis, midfit crisis, midintelligent crisis, midlengchai crisis and midlucky crisis.

*scratches head*

This midlife crisis thingy, I think I don't have it yet. I think midlife crisis is when you're not alive enough, but no quite dead. Is it? Is it?

Seriously, I have no clue. I have seen so many people go past that age when they're supposed to have midlife crisis, but normal only.

ppl say 人生七十古来稀... so midlife should be around 35... but with advancement of technologies, now ppl can age up to 80-90 on average... so make the midlife to be around 40-ish la :P

Hi Angel, I'm not too sure what 'midlife crises' is, maybe ada three young sniffling kids, one more on the way and wish single again? Maybe have to wear glasses to eye SYT's, or need reading glasses to look at photos or read papers? Or feel we not getting anywhere in life? Or feel life one big 'ho hum' and 'yawwwnny'?
Or on the hand getting a call from SYT at doctor's clinic at 10.45am with a "guess what..."? Now, THAT'S a crises. Best regards, UL.

sengkor said...

mid life crisis ah.. i think it's when someone already achieved something at certain age and dunno what to do next.. so, the mind will start to think funny things and that leads to depression and suicidal.

-prof sk-

凯西 said...

Midlife crisis... like what KW say, for men it's sports car/harleys and young chicks. For women, it's dressing like a young chick??

I guess it hits you when you realise you've achieved all you wanted to achieve and done all you've wanted to do but still feel empty and unsatisfied. Does this help?? That'll be 25 sen, please!

don't mind my previous comment... just melayang-ing a bit there!.. ;)

Tiuniasing said...

Midlife Crisis does happen to men and women. It happens when someone worries about it.

yenchiew said...

hello :)
bout the mid life crisis matter..
had a personal experience with a close relative..
middle age, he gets depressed ever since he retired from work.. he felt hopeless and useless.. easily agitated..overly-sensitive over small, puny matters, goes into depression..
it was really bad..
thank God things got better after much support from family members..

angel said...

Dear ah nel,...
Neither here nor there means not here nor there.

Whichever mouth hungry, I'll still have food for it...

**********
Dear winn,...
A great definition! I agree...

**********
Dear frostier,...
Gee... for one moment, it sounded like you have experienced it before... or maybe you have had... o.O

Let me tell you what is Midlife Crisis:

* Discontent with life and/or the lifestyle that may have provided happiness for many years
* Boredom with things/people that have hitherto held great interest and dominated your life
* Feeling adventurous and wanting to do something completely different
* Questioning the meaning of life, and the validity of decisions clearly and easily made years before
* Confusion about who you are, or where your life is going.

Dear ah tiu,...
Haha... I think you already have!

Dear jl,...
Betul! 10 markah!
Don't worry... be happy...

Haha... practice makes perfect! *wink*

Dear yenchiew,...
Hullo hullo!
*brings Red Carpet*
Cum cum.. make yourself comfy.. coffee? Tea?

I'm glad things turned out okay for your relative... it must have been stressful for the family as well, huh?

Hey, do come around again, okay? ;)
