Frequenty Asked Questions

Existential crises can be triggered by deep grief, a significant event, a major loss, or a trauma. It can happen when a person experiences the major loss of a close family member, losing a loved one in death, or having guilt about something.

Existential crises are not directly recognized as mental illnesses or mental health conditions. The consistent crisis will put you in depression and anxiety, directly affect your health, and trigger serious mental disorders. The psychologist recommends you get some counseling sessions when dealing with severe grief or extensional crisis.

An existential crisis can last for some days or even for some years, but the intensity of existential crisis emotion will probably be lower over time. It varies from person to person, and some people are more sensitive than others; it also depends on your connection with your loved ones.

An existential crisis is normal human behavior, but when it’s turning to depression or affecting your overall health, it will harm you. It needs to go away and lower the intensity on some days, but if it keeps steady and you’re still stuck in it, then it needs to be treated by a certified existential crisis therapist.

What is an Existential Crisis?

Existential crisis is the confusion and questions that swarm our minds regarding our purpose in life. It leads to people becoming perplexed about what they want from life, what their values are, what is the purpose of everything, and what they are doing with their lives.

Often, an existential crisis is brought on by serious events like death, loss, or a setback in life. An existential crisis in young adults is particularly common, as it is a very perplexing time in people’s lives.

What Does it Mean to Have an Existential Crisis?

As the term existential crisis is used colloquially often, the meaning of existential crisis can vary from person to person. For some, it can be dissatisfaction with where you are in life because you are stuck. For others, dissatisfaction can be brought on by following wrong pursuits.

Remarked by agitation, sadness, and lots of perplexing thoughts, an existential crisis has a trigger. It could be something serious like a loved one’s death, or something banal as well, like thinking about where your peers are and where you are in life.

A good existential crisis example was the coronavirus pandemic; when the world suddenly shut down, many people started to have panicking thoughts about the purpose of their life, which led to an existential crisis.

What are the Common Issues Associated with an Existential Crisis?

Some of the common themes of an existential crisis include:

What Does An Existential Crisis Feel Like?

How to Deal with and Treat an Existential Crisis?

While an existential crisis may feel very overwhelming, there are things you can do when you are having an existential crisis. These not only teach you how to get over an existential crisis but also contain your answers as to how to stop an existential crisis. Some helpful steps include:

Shift Your Perspective

Your mindset determines the outcome of things; you can either wallow in misery or use it to fuel your determination. Take it as a failure or use it as a learning moment. So, shift your perspective to look for the good in situations. It will help you feel less dissatisfied with your life, whilst helping you be motivated to do better.

Write Your Goals

Ideas in our heads can be abstract. To achieve what you want, and to get over your current lack of performance, make goals for yourself, achieving which gives you pleasure. These do not have to be merely about your career but can also be about more meaningful things in life.

Talk to Other People

Feeling isolated can exacerbate the crisis. So, connect with people. It will help you feel better not just because social contact lessens stress, but loneliness can also cause more mental health problems.

Also, from afar, people’s lives seem to be perfect, which can make yours appear drearier by comparison. It is when you talk to people can hear about their struggles do you gain perspective.

Read Up

There are many existential crisis books that help people center themselves. These may include guidelines for to deal with an existential crisis or may center around altering our worldview.

Be Grateful

A lot of the time, our dissatisfaction is rooted in lack of acknowledgement for what we have and complaints about what we do not. So, to be more humble and grateful, count your blessings. It not only promotes contentment and empathy, but it also makes you less sad and aggressive.

Leave the Cycle of Regret

If you continue living the past, chances are you are going to ruin your present and even future as well. So, rather than ruminating over past mistakes, learn to leave the cycle of regret. The practice of mindfulness can help you be more present in the now, instead of dwelling futilely in the past.

Go Back to the Basics

If you are not happy with your life, go back to the drawing board. Try to change your approach to working, so that you can achieve greater results. Find your happiness and strengths and play on them then. Redirect your energy to what fulfills you.

Get Therapy

It also helps to get therapy, especially since an existential crisis can lead to problems like anxiety, depression, and stress. As there are low energy levels during an existential crisis, remote counseling at Fitcy Health is very convenient.

You can also choose from various packages, which are priced competitively. Moreover, you can also message your therapist whenever you are accosted with poor mental health.

Turn to Writing

Writing is a cathartic experience. When you pen your thoughts, not only do you become more introspective, but you can also pinpoint what exactly is causing you problems. You can then produce a game plan, rather than being inactive and stressed.

Meditation and Mindfulness

As an existential crisis can cause chaos in the mind, turning to meditation and mindfulness can help. They are good for dealing with negative thoughts, improving mood, and lowing stress levels.
