    Mid Life Crisis

    Anyone here had one?

    If so, what was the cure?
    Our beauty is our power, our strength. We can’t allow them to change us, to lessen us. I will never grant them that satisfaction, and neither should you!

    Growing up again... I went the fast little sports car and girls half my age route... I don't really recommend it.

    To give myself a little credit, it was precipitated by a nasty divorce (Not my choosing), but still, I think I acted like an idiot.

    I'm just glad it didn't result in any little Hammiches, that would've been the topper.

    So, I guess I'd say, just getting back to who you really are.

    In the big picture, more little Hammishes is always a good thing.

    Mid-life "crises" are just reminders that we are still alive, and had better do some living while we are.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    I lived a wild life when younger, and then again after my first wife so when I hit mid life I guess I reverted back to the things I wanted in the first place, house, land, going hunting and decent woman.

    I agree with HoM being a little wild and having some adventure makes you feel alive.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    How can you live against your inner self for so long that you collapse? I was 29-31 when I realized what I had to let go and what to fight for in my personal life. Of course, I also went through my university phase of a bleeding heart activist when I was 16 and dropped it before the millennium. I felt like living my own life and not joining any crowd of lemmings. By the time I got my degree, I never had to deal with campus social activities. Online classes are great.
