Waking up to our own reality, our own mortality, our own limitations – call it whatever label works for you. Or don’t label it. Simplifying something complicated with a catchy label doesn’t de-complicate it – doing that serves only to take it off the table. For instance, mid-life crisis. Something so quickly tossed off as a quip more than a discussion illuminates nothing.
As perverse as one word descriptions: success, failure.
Or ‘not living up to his/her potential’.
Do these labels inform any discussion?
I don’t have something better to offer – just a caution, every time we have a simple label for someone or their behavior/experience, we know little or nothing at all. If we dig, if we care to dig – if we explore, true gems of knowledge are likely buried.
