Toni Braxton

Everyone knows someone who is experiencing the dreaded midlife crisis. It is that stage when adults who are nearing 50 or over 50 begin dreading the loss of youth.

A midlife crisis is an inner conflict between our declining youth and our advancing maturity.

Some women (your blog auntie included) easily transition through the midlife crisis stage.

But other women who have depended on their looks rather than their intellect tend to have the most difficulty adjusting to life after 40.

According to Psychology Today, women who suffer the most from midlife crisis tend to be successful women who are high achievers, i.e., celebrities, doctors, nurses, scientists, CEOs, journalists, narcissists, etc.

"It is possible that women without careers go through significant explorations each decade as well. However, self-sufficient women fall down a deeper rabbit hole."

How do you know if you are experiencing a midlife crisis? Most women don't realize it until a friend says, "You're going through a midlife crisis!"

Signs of a midlife crisis include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Spending more time in the mirror
  • Excessive retail therapy (overspending)
  • Dating younger men or women
  • Changing habits
  • Changing job fields (downgrading)
  • Dressing too young for your age
  • Driving expensive sports cars (men)
  • Comparing yourself to younger co-workers (women)
  • Feeling lonely
  • Unexplained weight gain or weight loss
  • Seeking out younger friends
  • Considering plastic surgery
  • Obsessing over your looks and hair
  • Sudden interest in hobbies
  • Changing sleep patterns
  • Insomnia

  • If you are experiencing a midlife crisis, talk to friends who might be going through a similar experience. Don't try and "tough it out on your own." Find a non-judgmental friend who is also interested in personal development. A good lifestyle coach can help as well.

    Here are some questions you might explore together:

    1. What do I feel I should have done by this time in my life?

    2. Is there something more important and fulfilling that I can focus on now?

    3. What do I want more of in my life? What have I imprisoned that is crying to be free?

    4. How can I ensure my commitment to living a significant life?

    Above all, don't let people tell you that you have no right to be unhappy with your life. It is okay to lose your equilibrium when others think your life should be smooth sailing. It is okay to question your life's purpose. It's okay to say, "I don't know who I am." It is better to ask the questions and seek the answers than to live a numb life.

    This has been your Medical Minute. Take care of yourselves.

      My big sis is 39 and pregnant. I thought it was because her and hubby liked to do the nasty. I gotta tell her she got a gut full of midlife crisis instead.

    • Buttercup

      If Toni likes it, I love it. I think I'm going to prefer being a Angela Basset type of sexy cougar.

      Changing job fields (downgrading)

      ^^^^^^^^^^^
      IDK if this is a midlife crisis. Cause I been contemplating a REAL long ass time, like YEARS on how I can become the youngest Wal Mart greeter or cashier at the McDonalds and still make my bills. I want a job I can leave when I purnch the hell out. Hell I WANNA be able to purnch the hell out.

    • puppylove

      Lmao. Tell her stop maknig long term decisions based on lust.

    • Emily post

      No u didn't shade miss Toni Braxton like that..... #dead
      She honestly looks gorgeous shape and body wise hell I hope to look half as good at her age.
      She deserves to be happy. She can pull sexy off for other people the struggle is so real.

    • Buttercup

      how I can become the youngest Wal Mart greeter
      ===========
      LMBO. I think you have to at least have your AARP card.

    • mela.reign77

      Or maybe she's just embracing the fact that she looks darn good to be 50ish. Wait,well maybe not 50 ish but you guys know what I mean. I think the real problem is not a midlife crisis but something so much more. Heck she's dating, fondling, swapping spit with a dude that calls himself Birdman. Showing a little cleavage is the least of her worries at this point.

    • Da Puppet Mistress

      And see. I applaud SisSoul. But I truly think another pregnancy at 39 would KILL MEH. I BUR-LEE made it through my last one in 2005 at 28!

    • puppylove

      If it makes you happier it's not downgrading.

      Wonder if Sandra was going through a crisis when she left nursing to become a photographer, then left that to be a blogger.

    • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

      You left out dating men that look like cartoon characters, and may be sexually adventurous/bi-sexual / Trysexual etc.

    • L.T.L. Since 2007

      Just called my mama and told her I was sorry and that I loved her. Had no idea she was going thru a MLC when she had baby bro.
      She kindly, in her most professional voice, cussed me smooth the fukk out for calling her JOB with this bullshyt.

    • Buttercup

      I BUR-LEE made it through my last one in 2005 at 28!

    • Let Your Soul Glow

      Wow. We are blessed with easy, breezy pregnancies in my family. I loved being pregnant. But if you had a rough pregnancy, I don't blame you. To hear you describe it before, I would have been one and done. Dub11 would have been Dub Never.

    • MsSincerity

      Ever since Toni appeared in the Aaliyah tribute video "I Miss You", she has gotten the side eye from me. That was supposed to be a serious, emotional video and this chick in there touching huh self, trying to be all sexy and whatnot. I was like, girl what are you doing? #cutthatshitout......and not to long ago, she got on national tv and embarrassed herself (but she was too clueless to be embarrassed) talking about "I got divorced the WHITE way"....... as if beige people don't have bitter divorces. *eyeroll* I know that had nothing to do with this post, I just had to get that off of my chest. lol

    • puppylove

    • Buttercup

      See, that's one of my biggest fears. I had the easiest pregnancy with Lil Butter and he was such a sweet baby. I think the next would be the polar opposite and just a complete terror.

    • MissyJ

      So you dress inappropriate? like right nah? Whatchu wearing? *no homo*

    • kiddo1

      So Toni is 48, Bird man is 47...how is she in a Midlife crisis, is it because of the way Bird man dress and his tats... maybe he took care of all that debt she's in...anyway Toni has been dressing like this for a very long time..she might be happy, we shall see!

      A Couple of More things I'd like to add that I am experiencing that really might not qualify for the list above:

      -Since the baby factory is closing down and eggs have turned powdered-the need for grand kids
      -I've already covered the heat flashes and night sweats, but needing to be nude
      -cutting off all hair
      -crying...all the time, like at commercials
      -marriage before death
      -cold legs and feet
      -rambling in a conversations..............
      -memory loss
      -a sudden need of religion, and needing to get into heaven
      -not wanting to leave the house
      -blacking out on all customer service reps

      It's obvious TONI is suffering from this.?Hope it fades soon. She's a beautiful woman, there's no need 2 use a rapper & thighless dresses 2 validate it. Madonna is another 1 that's n denial & not embracing her age.

    • B.Loveitt

      They say more women are waiting much later to have children married or single. Most definitely if they marry later and both don't have any children at all. They said it's been going on for a while but the media teaches otherwise. Are they all weak and going through a midlife crisis as well as their husband?

    • KayCal

      I mean birdman could be, however a quick google search shows that Toni B. net worth is $10 million vs. Birdman's net worth is between $110-150 million.....So in this case I am with momma Evelyn, Birdman is a nice young man lol lol......

      What is it called when someone 55 quits their job after 13 years moves to another state with no job, cant find employment in that state, lives off savings and 401k goes through their 401k, cant pay their bills then shows up one day at their long lost daughter door step with no where to go expecting to live off their daughter who is married with two kids. Okay so you let her stay and try to get her a job, your best friend is a recruiter for a good paying company and she wont call the recruiter back because the job is too far. Is that a mid life crisis? Or is this person crazy?

    • Erin

      But other women who have depended on their looks rather than their intellect tend to have the most difficulty adjusting to life after 40......So basically unattractive people don't have mid life crisis I guess when you ugly all life is a crisis.

      I think folks are pursuing careers and sometimes they get on that career track and they INTEND to start a family, but they don't realize how quickly the time goes by. then when they finally feel financially ready, they may find that they're 10 years behind in their parenting plans :shrug: people want to say women have it made, but it's still tough out here and we are still faced with some hard choices. I don't judge 'cause I've only walked in MY shoes.

    • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

      well see, you're just selective about what you'll leave home for... nothing wrong with that!

    • Fendi

      The guy I was eyeballing yesterday had swag. Cute Y-3 t-shirt, baseball cap, nice jeans that sagged a little but weren't hanging off of his ass, nice kicks... He was in the Adidas store. He was a cuter version of Nigo from BAPE. He was a decent height, too. Not "regulation height," per se, but not titty height, either.

      I'm here for the Koreans, but my favorite is Chinese. There's a tall Chinese man at Twin Dragon who calls me his wife. ? I've known him since I was a teenager. I don't see him often, but he is basketball player height. He aged beautifully. The difference between him then and now is that his hair is a bit grey. That's it. When this one woman who works there sees him flirting with me, she always looks so funny.

      Filipinos are cool, too. I had a Filipino office husband once. He was a sweetheart. Nothing to look at physically, but we got along so well. Some of them have great personalities and can hold the best convos.

      I'm going to start getting out more, so hopefully, I'll snag a nice one. Lol

    • Jusstlookn

      If I may add to this Fancy. You are correct and I also agree. Most recently when have a conversation that I was invited to with a relative, she spoke of feeling that she waited to late, she finished school and have amazing career and all the material trappings that most men would desire, but most don't match her swag. "I don't judge 'cause I've only walked in MY shoes."

      I take it this is purely hypothetical? LOL!!
      j/k... I'm not gonna call anybody's mom crazy, but there's something there. and it may not have anything to do with age/aging. I have a good friend whose mom (RIP) was extremely 'entitled' when it came to her expectations of having her children provide for her, long before she was even nearing retirement age. she basically reared them in poor neighborhoods and had 'difficult' relationships with their fathers, which made it harder for the kids, but she genuinely expected them to take care of her. For instance, my friend inherited her grandmother's house, so the mother moved in with her and brought along her younger sister and her older brother. now, mind you, they were all adults, so there was no reason for her mother to leave her spacious rent-controlled apartment and drag this girl's grown siblings into a house that was actually smaller in sq footage.

      I mail ordered a jumpsuit last summer and was so sure it would look real cute on me. alas, I put it on and I looked like what can best be described as 'an egg with legs' ...I gave it to one of my nieces and it looked on her the way I had imagined it was supposed to look on me. it had an elastic waist, so now the only elastic is wear is in my bloomers.

( prolly neva had a regular job) so SHE IS A MILLION LIGHT YEARS DIFFERENT FROM MS. THERESA..WHO is tryin to club with her young nieces....dating their friends. Wearing their clothes n makin weird azz young girl choices. Cant expect toni to age " Normal & secure like..when she HASNT BEEN A REGULAR NORMAL CITIZEN SINCE SHE WAS 19. Smh

      I'm not sure how old the person who wrote this article is because I experienced a lot of the things on that list in my 20s and 30s. There is a difference in posting from life experience and from text book definitions. I guess the pic of Toni Braxton has a lot to do with her dating Baby (she can do better, he's messy) but if he makes her happy who cares. Many of the signs posted are not signs of midlife crisis, they are signs of being human, being an adult and life in general. Seems like it makes more sense to not define her life but to allow her or others to live (especially if they aren't hurting anyone).

      You give me hope! I'm 36 with none yet, but hopefully I'll find a great man and have one before 40.

    • ShadesofEMPRESS

      I don't have or want kids but to each their own. People are not going by time frames anymore.

    • B.Loveitt

      That's how I feel if their happy let them have those kids. Plus it's nice to see that some try to family plan and go in some type of order. Perfer seeing you are all right than straggling. All these 19 - 22 - 29 yrs old with 3 and 5 kids. I wouldn't make it my kids would be burying me at 30.

    • B.Loveitt

      Don't know if it's true but a friend who's getting married told one of the groomsmen auntie that she didn't want anybody really attractive in her wedding party. Well she told her nephew and now the groomsmen are mad. The auntie told me and another friend we wouldn't be asked and we weren't. LOL

      On the other hand I can't stand you! To the corner! BOL

    • hottlanta

      Never thought about a trumpet player. I like watching a man hands stroke the piano and play the guitar. 71 huh. I will be going to a jazz concert this weekend. Thanks for the tip.

    • LipstickANDlace

      That belly button ???

    • hottlanta

      That is a broke crisis. Ain't got nothing to do with age.

    • hottlanta

      That is a broke crisis. Ain't got nothing to do with age.

    • hottlanta

      I must have as well because at the age of 59 I have never had sex with a man 50 years or older. At this point I am not trying to either. They look creepy when they talk to me and I visualize them being naked with saggy skins and saggy balls and wanna throw up.

    • hottlanta

      Mini skirts, halter and shorts. It is not about the clothes being age appropriate but a lot of these women in their 20/30's are wearing clothes that are not body appropriate. Then when they see someone in their 50's rocking an outfit and look better than them they start hating. I wear my clothes tastefully. Women are always ragging women about how to dress but never tell Breast Ross to put his shirt on. I love being sexy. I refuse to be an old hateful broad dressed like Aunt Bea hating the world. Tina, Cicely, Chaka and Patti are my idols.

    • hottlanta

      Tina rocked her heels and mini dresses.

    • hottlanta

      That is your right to own it Bravo for being brave to say it. Kids are not the road to happiness. Glad you have faced the reality of having kids instead of having kids trying to please the public. Love your honesty.

    • Torae

      She wasnt broke when she woke up one day and decided to quit her job and break her apt lease to move out of state.?

    • esh

    • free

      did yall see the picture going around of the braxtons when they were little girls? i couldn't figure out two of them.

    • Guess Who

      I have a while until I reach 50 but age never bothered me. I don't get the big deal, hell beats the alternative. You take care of yourself, your body and looks will thank you. Now you may not look 22 anymore but you can still look good. That's such a stupid thing to worry about as it's inevitable. You grow older each day and you'll eventually die and there ain't shyt you can do about it so stop tripping, take care of yourself, cherish your loved ones and make great memories.

    • ShadesofEMPRESS

      Thanks so much. It means alot hearing this because people have given me a hard way because they say women should have kids. Smh

    • TeeTee

      I believe a midlife crisis is partially responsible for Prince's suicide. Ms. Braxton needs her blood pressure checked.

      She is too dayum old to still be doing that. She has sons for goodness sakes. Yes she still looks good but keep it classy. Sexy doesn't have to be still showing your goods after all of these years.

      DEAD!

    • Sincerity7

      Hell - based on these symptoms the majority of women are potentially going through a mid-life crisis.

    • Enoughsaid2020

      A lot of men having kids in their 50's is a midlife disaster! Nothing wrong with a women dating a younger man, these older men are sad these days. Get you midlife transition on!

    • Molly Church

      Yep! ??

    • Kim

      Toni has being dressing like this on and off for over 25 years,was she in a midlife crisis 25 years ago? GMAB

    • stanley

    • usher #1fan????

    • Genia W-m

      OMG! J. Lo dresses like this too. These older women dressed like this in their 20s and now want to Keep Up with the Trashy Kardashians who don't know any better. Toni is a mother of boys too. Ugh!

    • Rhyme and Reason

      Good Medical Minute! They give us two decades to be and do everything, which is unrealistic! Ladies reinvent yourself every ten years, from your 20's onward! I can understand why celebrities or narcissists struggle more than others, sometimes too much can really be too much, while less earners and not as successful individuals have to stay on their toes, and keep things tight and right (updating skill-set, more degrees, paying for kids' college tuition, overcoming setbacks w/o big loot, dating, remarrying, etc.) as they go on in life!
