Researchers have found that most people between their 40’s and 50’s feel depressed and unsatisfied with their lives. Some people go into full-blown depression. This is called having a mid-life crisis. It effects every population of people around the world, whether a person is rich, poor, has children, has no children, married, divorced, widowed, or single. The crisis is temporary and starts to leave in the mid 50’s. Knowing that the phase is normal can help people move through it.
