Abstract or Introduction

Midlife crisis is a phenomenon characterized by much turmoil in one’s life on the realisation that mortality is inevitable and achievements and desires have not been satisfied. The Greek poet, Homer, in his two poems, Odyssey and Iliad, extensively highlights the challenges and aspects experienced through this phase. In many dimensions, midlife crisis creates a loss of sense of self-leading to rush decisions, hopelessness, anxiety, and aggression among many other reactions. On the positive note, the realisation of what aspects of life to change enables a positive outcome that transforms one into maturity.
