Midlife Crisis Starting as Early as 35 years Old

UK researchers have released a finding that the traditional midlife crisis that people tended to experience around 50 and upwards is starting in people as young as 35 years old. As a Life Coach, I personally do not find this surprising.

The research done by Relate UK say:

  • That 1 in 5 aged 35 – 44 feel lonely a lot of the time and have suffered depression,
  • 22% wish they had a better relationship with their family and the same number feel closer to their friends than to their family
  • Nearly one third think their family relationships would improve if they could reduce their working hours
  • 25% wanted more time for their family
  • 23% want more time for their friends
  • 22% have suffered depression
  • 28% have left a job because of a bad relationship with a colleague
  • 40% have been cheated on by a partner

People in this age group also work long hours and have the added stress of managing family, mortgage and other financial pressures that go along with it.

To fill in the time with family/friends gaps, the 35 to 44 year olds are prolific users of communication whether it be mobile phone calling and texting, using Skype or webcam, Facebook and Twitter to stay in touch with family and friends.

From my coaching perspective, most of my clients range between 33 to 45 years old and fit in perfectly with the above statistics.

Clients come to life or business coaching because how their life or business is right now needs to change. It isn’t working for them.

It takes courage to take action but if your desire is strong for change, you have the determination to see it through, the discipline to take action each and every day, you will see the results! I have tons of clients that have proved it.

A Poem About Listening

Years ago when I was studying for my Counselling Certificate, we were given the following poem about Listening. It struck a cord in me and wanted to post it today.

I hope you can make time to Listen to someone today, tomorrow and each and every day of your life. Not just a day that needs to organised to bring it to our attention.

The core of this poem is that most of the time, people just need you to listen and hold the space for them to express themselves. I hope each of us will learn the gift of listening and when its appropriate to give advice.

Message to Parents – Please take heed of the message of the poem.

Please Listen – Author Unknown

When I ask you to listen to me

and you start giving me advice,

you have not done what I asked.

When I ask you to listen to me

and you begin to tell me why

I shouldn’t feel that way,

you are trampling on my feelings.

When I ask you to listen to me

and you feel you have to do something

to solve my problem,

you have failed me,

strange as that may seem.

Listen! All I ask is that you listen.

Don’t talk or do—just hear me.

Advice is cheap; 20 cents will get

you both Dear Abby and Billy Graham

in the same newspaper.

And I can do for myself; I am not helpless.

Maybe discouraged and faltering,

but not helpless.

When you do something for me that I can

and need to do for myself,

you contribute to my fear and


But when you accept as a simple fact

that I feel what I feel,

no matter how irrational,

then I can stop trying to convince

you and get about this business

of understanding what’s behind

this irrational feeling.

And when that’s clear, the answers are

obvious and I don’t need advice.

Irrational feelings make sense when

we understand what’s behind them.

Perhaps that’s why prayer works, sometimes,

for some people—because God is mute,

and he doesn’t give advice or try to fix things.

God just listens and lets you workit out for yourself.

So please listen, and just hear me.

And if you want to talk, wait a minute for your turn—and I will listen to you.

Note: If any of you know the name of the Author of this poem then please let me know and I will update. Thank you.
