During certain phases in life, particularly when reaching maturity, some people look for a new meaning in their lives.
This might be part of a major life transition like in midlife, or as a result of difficulties . Then comes the need to reassess the goals we had set for ourselves in life. “What do I really want out of my life?” might be a recurring question.
“ Midlife is a time to look back and a time to look ahead, a time to ask how are things going and what is left to do” (Lachman)
