Ok guys, this one’s for you….rather, this is an invitation for you. In the next six weeks, in anticipation of the new course I am rolling out, “Surviving Midlife,” I will be writing a LOT about midlife….specifically the midlife journey. Being a girl and all, I can only speak to this from a woman’s perspective and out of a woman’s experience. This is where I need your help! I suspect that the male midlife journey is somewhat similar to a woman’s journey including:
- physical and emotional changes and upheaval
- relationship issues
- anxiety, depression, etc.
- Facing empty nest and the relationship changes that come from that!
I also believe the goal/destination of the journey is similar: seeking to find fulfillment beyond what one has known in their current profession, relationship, etc.
BUT…I’m just a girl….what do I know about a man’s journey (other than what male clients have shared with me.)?
So…..here is where you come in. Send me your stories (they can be anonymous if you wish). Email your experience of the midlife journey as a MAN and from the MALE perspective. What are you feeling, experiencing, hoping, wishing, dreaming? What in your life frustrates the hell out of you and what would you like to see changed. Or…if you’ve survived midlife and found fulfillment on the other side…HOW DID YOU GET THERE??????
I will share your stories on this blog (again, your story can be published anonymously if you wish) and in the sharing we will all learn, grow, be informed …..and we just might help a few men….and women along the way.
Thank you in advance for your contribution which you can send to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing your stories and growing through your open sharing.
