Here are three things you can do to help yourself or your partner through a midlife crisis:
1. Realise that the crisis is a good thing. Although you might feel a bit uneasy about where your life is going, the fact that you have decided to break out of the rather dull and predictable patttern of your old life is the start of a process of renewal.
2. The dead zone comes about because you closed down your heart and stopped feeling all your emotions (to protect yourself from difficult ones). Now the time has come to open your heart again and to experience all your emotions. Work to heal anything negative that comes up.
3. Moving through a midlife crisis is really about finding the real you - somebody who has a big heart, is creative and full of love. This is your natural state and you are well on the way to finding a lifestyle that brings you contentment and joy. Remember that it is your relationships that will bring you lasting and profound levels of happpiness, so embrace them wholeheartedly and invest in them every day.
