  1. This is a very general question, an existential crisis is a crisis that is associated with a person's experience of certain givens of his existence: mortality, imperfection, freedom and responsibility, loneliness and the search for meaning in life (or the absurdity of it). A crisis is experienced in the context of a certain life story and is often associated with the search for valuable things and activities for a person. Without knowing the context, life history, and nature of the crisis, it is difficult to recommend anything other than a course of psychotherapy.

  2. To answer this question, I can recommend you the book “Comments on the 4th dialogue of the Philosophy of Weapons”, because it very accurately describes how a person gets into such a crisis, i.e. the reasons. And by eliminating the cause, it will be easy to overcome it. We are always unable to cope only with what we do not know. Link to Yandex. disk https://yadi.sk/i/NusmRrVBbXis2g

    Those who have already read it wrote their review as follows:

    Well, what can I say, I read it twice already, because I couldn't believe my eyes the first time. The book is more suitable for strong-minded guys who have “dead eyes in their eyes”, because whom life (or mother) still cherishes and cherishes-they are unlikely to be able to perceive the above. Specifically for me, reading this part put my brain in place. Before that, I had vaguely matured my own ideas about the issues raised based on my rich experience, and for me it became something like a balm for the soul-first pain, and then a pleasant healing.

    Carranza (let me remind you, this is the founder of the Spanish school of fencing Destresa) in the 4th dialogue concerns such concepts that are close to every man! Since childhood, we have been making movies about how we defeated someone, won, managed, overcame, became the first, we are honored, admired and proud of us. At the same time, when we grow up due to ignorance or fear, many things seem impossible to us, and because of these reasons, we do not realize ourselves in many ways, and if we try somewhere, we already understand that we don't need to climb there again, they say “don't stand anywhere-it will fall again”. That is, it is quite normal for most of us men not to do our duty, i.e. not to do what we should do in our place. And we are not tormented by conscience, but we are tormented by all sorts of depressions and crises of different ages about what you did not become, could not, and what you have is not quite the same.

    So Carranza just writes what is the reason for male unrealization and answers the question of what is more important than justice or strength. When I put it all together, I realized that I was going against the wind and mostly fighting with myself. Carranza went through every concept – conscience, honor, dishonor, justice, duty, the conflict between reason and instinct, as people remain in the memory of many generations. He gave an understanding of what a person is fighting for in this life, what he is protecting, why he needs weapons, why he needs spirituality.

  3. Only work, mental or physical, is a panacea for all kinds of mental crises. Idleness, laziness, and excess create it.

    A person should work all his adult life. Reaching it

    after that, consider that you have coped with the crisis.
