Q&A: How can I encourage my husband who is showing signs of having mid-life issues?

A: Many people who do go through a mid-life crisis often experience depression at that time. They wonder, “Where am I going with my life?” In terms of helping a person through that, you can attend a class at your church that deals with mid-life crisis if they have one, or read a good book on the topic. I also think that talking with the person can help; Ask them questions about various aspects of their life in the past and some things they would like to do in the future. Getting a future vision often brings people through a time of emotional crisis.
