It is described in psychology as a crisis, which is generally brought on by things that are highlighted a person’s growing age, inevitable mortality, and shortcomings of life accomplishments. Midlife crises can bring about feelings of depression, remorsefulness, anxiety, and the desire to be young again. This desire to feel young again tends to bring about life changes, such as purchasing a sports car.
