Listening to a prominent male dj on a popular radio station this morning, my gag reflex was engaged to a sexist judgmental comment made about women in their 40s and 50s these days having the female version of a 'midlife crisis'.
It was about 6 months ago I woke up one day and thought Id had enough of mainstream society, clocking in and out of a job i just couldn't bare any longer. The mornings and late nights flicking thru other people's social media posts, wasting my life away thinking what has This world we live in created for us as human beings?
Struggling thru the silly season pre and post Christmas can be a testing time for all. With finishing up the years work or school year, preparing for time off with family/holidays, not to mention attempting to navigate the busy parking lot of a shopping centre, only to drag ourselves into shops to spend money we dont have on gifts other people dont want. The stress levels of everyday life at this time come a distant second place and tends to leave us feeling frazzled and all the more ready to embrace 'the time off'.
