Best is to love it all. No need to live in fear. No need to have grudges. Forgive the people you are angry with. It sours our own lives.
One of our friends is getting old and with it is coming all the difficulties of aging. It is painful to see somebody in pain. They are depressed some days due to lack of independence. I got discussing all this with my senior nurse colleague and what she told me, kept me thinking all day yesterday.
Getting old is not for the faint hearted but then if you die young you lose out on a lot.
So really, either ways it is going to be difficult.
I do respect old people but to feel that they are not faint hearted fills me up with pride for them. Their endurance to get through life and bear with physical, mental and emotional assaults around them can’t have been easy.
Old people in some ways give me a lot of hope. Life is beautiful. Love it all and be happy.
