Was it you who wanted dthe divorce, if you don't mind me asking?
It's complicated.We loved each other very much, but wanted different things, grew apart and had a lot of problems.The divorce is just necessary so we can both move on without financial ties.
Yeah I can understand that. Maybe a midlife crisis could've subconsciously played into that too though.
I was too busy raising a child and working and taking care of my dad to have any kind of vanity about my age etc.I was very busy and consumed by responsibilities.I also had everything I ever wanted so..
A midlife crisis is often misunderstood. Reading the mental health research on it recently, it is linked more to feeling overburdened and unhappy that vanity. But only you know your situation. I just felt it worth pointing out since it's often subconscious.
To be honest, I was very content in our life.It was more my wife that had a midlife crisis and didn't want to be a wife or mother anymore.Your theory of feeling overburdened and unhappy describes her situation better.
I see, that makes sense.
Sorry to hear that though. Those things are never easy.
Thanks, it was very traumatic to go through while trying to care for a child.I also lost my dad and my brother passed away shortly after.Everything in my life fell apart at once and my wife having her midlife crisis at that point was almost too much.We split up and I focused on my son and work.Thankfully I met another woman shortly after who took my mind off of everything.
No you won't, there are other things to pursue and achieve too
Yeah, I think it's often natural to look back on life choices once certain opportunities end.

Sorry to hear that. Tbh I don’t think the current covid situation is helping, I’m sure many people are experiencing weird situations right now.
Ty and yes i do agree covid is not helping but for me some recent unexpected life events are what caused it. Iam a professional soccer player and i injured my knee so bad that my club decided not to extend my contract even though i was their best player by far.Now i had my knee surgery and iam patiently waiting to recover and then physical therapy..Problem is we soccer players at 35 already kinda retire so i have like 10 years more tops to play if i recover well. My girlfriend leaving me because iam apparently useless now is not helping either. Lol and sorry for the rant.
That really sucks, I feels for you, so sorry to hear it. I also went through some unemployment and a traumatic event with a loved one. You're definitely not alone. The only wya is up, an dbelieve me, things do always get better. Life is a roller-coaster for most if not all of us.
Yep i agree and ty for your kind wordsXD
What makes you think that?
What do you think triggers it?
Lots of factors, but for me, I had an "image" of what my life would be like at different ages and it's not even close. So sometimes I look back and wonder where my life would be if I made some different choices along the way, when I should be focusing on the choices to make in the future
Yeah I can relate to that too.
