Each and every one of us has some idea what a mid life crisis is. However, I want to know what it really is. All I know is that it is somehow different for men and women and not everyone experiences it. From my point of view, young adults get middle life crisis because they dread the changes they fear will make their lives different. Of course, this is true but it is not as scary as you might think. Once women and men understand that they cannot turn back time, everything goes back to normal. Even though it is called mid life crisis it is not a "crisis" for every middle aged adult.
