Today, I saw a quote, and it struck me in a certain way. "Never regret growing older. It's a privilege denied to many."
I feel that's a good way to look at aging, instead of with negativity. A good deal of my lady friends and a couple of guy friends all fear aging like nothing else. The wrinkles, lines, and creases, losing their 'good looks,' and all the such that comes with aging. And it just never ceases to get on my nerves when I start hearing them talk like that. I'm also quite sick of the 'party hard, die young' mentality in a lot of people.
I know that for most of them, eventually, they'll mature about their opinions of aging, I hope. Yet, does anyone else feel similarly about this state of mind people seem to have? Am I alone in being so unnerved by that kind of attitude?
It just seems like people should appreciate, and almost cherish, every wrinkle, crease, and line that they get. It shows that they made it this far, when there are so many things that could have ended them far sooner. I'm not saying they should look forward to aches and pains, but at least appreciate that they're still alive.
I look forward to seeing what other men here think about the subject.
