So often I find myself at social gatherings with friends saying how guilty they feel about wanting time for themselves over and above what they do for their husbands and family.
Why? I ask them. We are all much happier in all relationships if we have space and time to do something for ourselves and pursue an activity or long term ambition. I am quite lucky though I have several female friends that are my study buddies and achieving all sorts of great things..I know I say it a lot it really is never too late.
For those people who are unhappy with their life there is only one person who can help you move on to a more rewarding life…and that’s you! If you need life coaching or counselling to help you achieve it then seek it.
I repeatedly remind people that are feeling they are in a midlife crisis that there is nothing wrong with wanting to feel fulfilled. Just don’t ask too much of your partner we have to make our own contentment and not expect that to be the sole responsibility of others.
I read a very interesting article today echoing what I have been saying for a long time men’s position in today’s society is a struggling one for many.
