One reader admits to losing his spark, in all areas of his life 😞: "I’m bored. I’ve got a good career, good home, good marriage, and three good kids. But something is off.⁠ ⁠ "I thought I’d escaped midlife-crisis territory (I’m 65 ), but I’m underwhelmed by everything: holidays, books, conversations, life…⁠ ⁠ "To my wife’s amusement, I’ve joined a squash club, invested in buy-to-let properties, but nothing helps.⁠ ⁠ "The idea of a PhD (one friend’s suggestion ) bores me. And please don’t suggest a cruise or writing my memoir. I’m not depressed, just unstimulated, and I’m counting down to a retirement I’m not sure how to fill."⁠ ⁠ What would you say to our reader? 🤔 Check the link in bio to read @themidult 's reply⁠ ⁠ #midults #family #advice #retirement #unhappy #bored #boredom
