Do you always ponder the finite quality of time and what anything means? We’ve all heard the term “mid-life crisis” before. It’s when you approach middle adulthood and realize that time is limited while working to establish meaning for it. This is known as existentialism. While it’s common to wonder about these things from time to time, for some it can be an overwhelming experience. We made this video to help you understand more about existential depression.
