Me and a midlife crisis

"I THINK I'm having a midlife crisis!" I heard myself saying between sobs. I have to admit, it sure felt as if I'd been experiencing an extended period of confusion, frustration, and sadness. My emotions swung between regretting past choices (or at least repeatedly questioning them) and feeling that the future held little hope.

This attitude was totally unlike me. It certainly didn't align with my general view of life or with my work as a spiritual healer. The knowledge of this dichotomy led to self-condemnation and a feeling of hypocrisy. How could I help others find freedom from similar feelings I wondered, if I was nose-deep in them myself and unable to swim to shore?
