Midlife in a Nutshell

November 8, 2008 |

Though this site on building midlife skills site seems neglected, its brief insights and overview of the sources of conflict that take place during midlife crisis are relevant and enduring. It describes midlife crisis as an internal conflict between our true selves and our socialized selves, the parts of ourselves that learned to conform, to fit in with the values, ethics and behaviors around us. In a nutshell, they recommend a way out of crisis: to identify who you are today, decades later, and to replace the limiting beliefs you’ve taken on about yourself and your possibilities. Straightforward enough - and easier said than done! It can be confrontive, slippery and dispiriting excavation work at times, but the prize of reclaiming oneself is pure gold. A mini-test on the site may provide clues to areas of disconnect and discontent. A note: there is no newsletter, they have apparently moved on to other things.
