How To Have a MidLife Crisis in 18 Easy Steps

Wow. This is meant to be a joke, but if you read it knowing it is a joke you will see the TRUTH through the funny.  No one likes funny more than me, and as much pain as this subject has brought me over the years, I actually like this creative piece of writing.

For just a moment, I hope you enjoy the Midlife Crisis in 18 Steps for what it was meant to do:  bring humor to a sad, sore, destructive happening in our world today.

The point is to read the Midlife Crisis in 18 Steps as if YOU were the one wanting to have a crisis and you didn’t give a flying f*#k what anyone else thought.

If you read it as if you were WANTING to have the MLC, then you will see what is going on inside the head of a person with MLC.  It’s perfect.  Beyond perfect.  Do Not take this too seriously (I don’t want hate email).

Again, please pretend that YOU are choosing to go thru a midlife crisis but don’t know where to start!

Be Prepared:

If you are involved with anyone that you believe is having a midlife crisis, I send you love and compassion.  The fact that you are here and reading this in the first place means you really care and love your spouse enough to look into what you could do to help.

To give proper credit, this exerpt is adapted (I added and changed a lot to make it funnier) from a site called:  http://midlifeclub.com/midlife-for-dummies.htm. 

The following “book” originated on The Midlife Club forum several years ago in a thread started by a member with the forum ID of “Boosbrde”.
