SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The most honest answer is, "Until the transition is completed. Until all values can be sorted out and the person accepts that they are either entering their LateLife years, or that they have become a LateLife person, instead of a young adult."


Generally, a LateLife crisis takes three to five years. During the first year or so, tension and anxiety will gradually increase, as well as some lifestyle changes. The middle phase can be quite traumatic, including depression, running away, or a drastic job change.


After values are sorted and realigned, a gradual, but fluctuating, coming-down from anxiety occurs. There is a return, surprisingly, to life structures quite similar to the previous ones, only now more refined, focused, and effective.
