Love and midlife crisis ....illusion or truth?

She could not pinpoint the exact time when she started thinking that maybe love between a man and a woman does not exist.

Maybe it is a firmament of our imagination? or maybe she had lost the capacity to love? It all felt numb in the heart area or wherever that part was that made her feel warm and tingly and hopeful about life.

Love felt like something distant, a legend, something that was constantly ahead of her. It's as if she was running after a mirage and each time she thought she held it, the image would melt between her fingers.
Was this what they called midlife crisis or was she experiencing some form of early menopause?

It was tragic because she was incapable of discerning a man's love anymore. She was not talking about the physical longings, but about feelings and emotions. There was a void and a hollowness and as a result she felt trapped in a sound proof transparent room. She could see him but she couldnt hear him...

Most women would definitely relate to such feelings. Life is weird when it comes to the heart, and dealing with emotion never seems to let go of us.

I sometimes ask myself, why do we have to be so emotional? Why is it when we're alone in the dark of the night, wishing we could look up and see stars in the ceiling?

I know exactly what you mean. Im going through such an episode too.

Thanks for sharing.

It's hard to see your blog: two colors of dark purple on a dark purple background. But I can see it when I highlight the text.

Hello Ibeebarbie and welcome to my blog. I hope that you will be able to successfully negotiate this stage of your life as I hear the next one is more fun.

Abdullah, thank you for your encouragement. I do love writing.

Sparklin Motivation, I think we relate because these emotions are relevant to us. What do you think?

Luna, you're welcome, it does feel good to out these emotions I guess. what is happening with you ?

Thanks Dmarks, I'll see what I can do about this, but you are the first person who said it was hard :P Glad that you are still reading my blog though.
