An existential crisis is a psychological state in which a person questions the meaning, purpose and value of their life. It can be triggered by various factors, such as a major life change, a loss of a loved one, a personal failure, or a confrontation with mortality. An existential crisis can cause feelings of anxiety, depression, loneliness, hopelessness and despair. It can also lead to a search for new sources of meaning and fulfilment, such as spirituality, creativity or social activism.
