Middle age crisis

He ceases to enjoy life, falls into depression, dramatically changes his mood, stops doing his favorite things, and leaves his family. From the side these actions seem absurd and unpredictable.

All that was not able to end in adolescence, suddenly pops up and comes down with an obsession: to show everyone their desires, and not the desires of the parents. Adult enough, who already has his own grown-up children, sees in himself a loser and a hypocrite. He rebels against his life principles and intends to show his "I" to everyone.
However, there are still explanations for this behavior. Often it is fame, career, confusing people. He does not see what else you can strive for.
