Summary

When it comes to menopause, we all get there at different times, with different circumstances, for different reasons, and at different times in our lives. There’s not one thing about menopause that’s exactly the same for any one of us—but we all arrive at that place, that intersection, at some point or another. Midlife is about infinitely more than menopause. And while menopause plays a role, it’s not the be-all, end-all of midlife.
