This is the time when we start to think about what kind of legacy we want to leave behind. But there is also our inner bitch that yearns to be heard, silenced for many until midlife. As a forty-eight-year-old woman said, or rather, ranted, Is it too much to ask for it to be my time now? For my husband to think about what needs to be done without my telling him? For my son to not act like Im a piece of crap? For my boss to recognize Im not his personal productivity machine? For my friends to stop being so needy? For boomer women, the second half of life presents unique challenges and opportunities. This is the time for asking, What do I really want? While theres no one answer for everyone, the stories and voices in Its Not Just Me will show readers how others have coped with their own twists and turns. Rueful, funny and wise, women at mid-life have learned lots of lifes lessons and are more than happy to dish it all out for us.
