Mid-Life Crisis

I don't know exactly what a mid-life crisis is, but I'm beginning to understand.

It happens at the point in life when you realise that all the things you thought you were going to do are never going to happen. A time when your defeats and disappointments outweigh your hopes and aspirations. You no longer know who you are or what you are doing!

Maybe I'm wrong but it seems like you spend your teenage years creating a personality, answering the question of "Who am I?" Then sometime in mid your 30s or 40s, you realise you've constructed your life on a falsehood. A dream thats no more real than the childhood fantasies you once had.

You realise that life is empty and void, and the rest is indeed silence!
