Crisis in My Life ?

*information obtained from “Welcome to your crisis” by Laura Day

Most life crises are more subtle (difficult to perceive or understand) but no less dangerous to our well-being. A seemingly tranquil life (free from disturbance; calm/peaceful) can mask an acute existential crisis (an bad, difficult or unwelcome situation)

Questions you could ask yourself to see if you are in or heading towards a crisis in your life:

  • Is there something important — pleasure, success, a relationship — missing in your life?
  • Do you want to change something in your life, but you don’t know how?
  • Are you feeling “out of place” or “not yourself”? Are you feeling “stuck”?
  • Are you more irritable lately with people around you?
  • Are you feeling resentful about minor upsets?
  • Have you suffered a loss?
  • Have you had a recent change (either good or challenging) that left you feeling disoriented?
  • Are you often sad?
  • Do you feel overwhelmed?
  • Do you remember your dreams rarely, if ever?
  • Do you feel hopeless?
  • Do things always seem just to go wrong?
  • Are you finding it hard to imagine a satisfying future?
  • Are you having nostalgic thoughts of the past?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may be in crisis.

DID YOU KNOW — a crisis can be a wonderful place to begin a better life.
