Finding Meaning in the Second Half of Life free pdf What does it really mean to be a grown up in today's world? We assume that once we "get it together" with the right job, marry the right person, have children and buy a home, all is settled and well. But adulthood presents varying levels of growth and is rarely the respite of stability we expected. Turbulent emotional shifts can take place anywhere between the age of thirty-five and seventy when we question the choices we've made, realise our limitations and feel stuck - commonly known as the "midlife crisis." Jungian psychoanalyst, James Hollis, believes it is only in the second half of life that we can truly come to know who we are and thus create a life that has meaning. In "Finding Meaning In The Second Half Of Life", Hollis explores the ways we can grow and evolve to fully become ourselves when the traditional roles of adulthood aren't quite working for us, revealing a new way of uncovering and embracing our authentic selves. Offering wisdom to anyone facing a career that no longer seems fulfilling, a long-term relationship that has shifted, or family transitions that raise issues of ageing and mortality, "Finding Meaning In The Second Half Of Life" provides a reassuring message and a crucial bridge across this critical passage of adult development.
