Does getting old scare you? why or why not?
Why do people resent old age to the extent that they want or wish to remain young by all possible means?
Old age changes the body. Our body is dearest and most valued. It is difficult to accept the old age changes like winkles, grey hair etc.
Not at all. I look forward to gaining more and more wisdom with every grey hair which I refuse to color. I have felt better with each birthday milestone. Of course, I'm aware of physical changes that tell me I can't do all that I used to at a high level but that comes with age. Declines in memory and recall can be frustrating, too but it's to be expected. But remaining young and vibrant in spirit can be done actively by anyone.
I think fear of old age is connected to fear of being all alone and ultimately, fear of death. If you live a good life with fulfilled purpose, moving to the other side should not be scary. Staying active and connected to others keeps you alive for your allotted time on Earth.
I prefer dying before getting that old. 65 years old is a great time for death. Life is not worth it after that age.
Scare me? Of course not. I love a challenge. I have phobias, but aging is not one of them. Unreasonable fear of anything can only burden us and hold us back from living every day to it's fullest potential.
At the present time, "getting old" has not been conquered. Even with all the assistance available for humans to "appear" youthful, it's merely an optical illusion. If you listen closely.....the inner clock continues to click.
Enough! Get moving......we're wasting time! Peace, Paula
I'm there and while I wish I was one of those "up" people that say I love being my age--I do not. Aging is very hard because the first thing that changes is younger people's assessment of you. They assume certain things about you.
What young people fail to understand is that while we have aged and our bodies look and operate differently than they once did--we still feel 25 in our heads and are often shocked when we see who we are in the mirror.
Aging is not for the faint of heart. No it doesn't scare me but I detest it.

Can an old man (60+) fall in love with a young woman (20+)?We all know that love ignores all barriers like: religion, race, distance and age. But is it really possible for a man of 65-70 years of age to fall in love...

... you spend ten minutes trying to thread a needle before you give in, hunt out your glasses, use them and thread the first try.Actually, it should probably read 'it's time to acknowledge you need to use your glasses...
