Oftentimes people think of themselves as a certain type of person: you’re either outgoing or reserved, easy-going or a bit high strung; maybe you’re an optimist or maybe you’re someone who always worries about things turning out right. At some point in your life, you may become used to inhabiting certain roles in your life. You’ve developed a particular way of handling challenges and stresses and have certain communication styles in your relationships. Sometimes people say that “change is going to be too hard” or that “it's too late.” Others might worry that change will complicate other relationships in their lives.

Here’s the good news: It’s never too late! Contemporary views of development emphasize the potential for change throughout adult life. In my experience as a therapist working with my clients, I know that positive change and growth are possible at any stage in a person’s life. The years of midlife and beyond can be a unique and rich stage of development where you can reap the benefits of your life experiences. Many middle-aged or older adults are planning for an extended work life, even starting a new job or are pursuing additional education, instead of thinking about retirement.
