EP #186: What Makes you Squirm in Midlife?

What You’ll Learn in this Episode about What Makes you Squirm in Midlife

  • How you can be surprised by what makes you squirm in midlife.
  • Why it’s important to notice when you’re uncomfortable and ask yourself why.
  • How you can use your feelings of discomfort to help you understand yourself more.
  • How it’s common for your thoughts and feelings to change over time about what makes you uncomfortable.
  • How you can have fun increasing your awareness about what makes you squirm.


Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle podcast!

What makes you uncomfortable can change in midlife. I like to call this kind of discomfort “squirm worthy.” This is when you don’t know whether to laugh or cry, but you know you’re uncomfortable even if you don’t know why.

You can use your feelings of discomfort as a clue to what you’re thinking about whatever it is. Perhaps it’s language, sexual innuendos, entertainment, images or something like comedy. Perhaps it’s being uncomfortable with heights.

What’s particularly interesting is to increase your awareness of what’s squirm-worthy for you and decide if you like your reasons or not. Your thoughts and feelings may surprise you because they may have changed over the years. Any way you slice it, it’s a great time to be more curious about yourself, especially if you do it with compassion!
