In reply to aging issues in and out of therapy, posted by pegasus on August 19, 2011, at 11:38:12

I'm almost 60. I start to feel strange, not in a good way, not to mention the whole appearance thing. When my nephew turned 21 a video was made of us all when we were maybe 35 and unappreciative and we all said 'We looked so good' and then 'We didn't think so then, did we?'

It's a complete f*ck up. No one can find anything good to say about it. I like to take an interest in it though, and with, for example, my wife, I want to be with her on the journey and if it is her turn to go first, help her with that. You may not be thinking in those terms. I think of it as being very close now, at least experientially. It is perhaps harder for women, I don't know? But to lose youth, doesn't it make you value it? But what use was it when you had it? Not like it would be if you had it now. You never compared yourself to old people then.

This is why old people can enjoy looking after the young so much.
