We have long feared that the big emotional and financial crisis of adulthood would hit us in middle age.
But these days, we should be much more worried about a meltdown in our 20s.
A study of attitudes across the generations has found that young adults are under more stress than their parents.
The midlife crisis is a myth… it’s the twentysomethings that are REALLY stressed
Middle age or Youth.
Which is more stressful?……….arggggggggggggg!
Is the proverbial “mid life crisis” a mere myth.
You no longer like your job.
You want to sell your house; perhaps buy a boat and sail to some obscure island hideaway.
You buy a red sports car.
You face is wrinkling.
Your once taut muscles are lookin mighty flabby.
Your waist is thickening. Your hair is thinning.
You join a gym fast!
You self medicate to ease the pain of unspoken wounds and long held secrets.
You drink, you smoke…you try desperately to look “hot”, to fit in.
You are left to morally defend for yourself…and you simply do not know how.
Youth has limitations, as does aging.
Who is “more” stressed……….youth or middle aged folks…….
What are we all in search of………Ultimately..ourselves.
Young or old, sweet friends……..
Therein lie the answers.
What say Y’all?
