do not want to live till I am very old. i like to die when I am in good health and without giving physical pain to those around me. the only fear i have of growing old is that I might be a burdon to those who look after me if I am bedridden or have some serious illness. I would like to age gracefully.

Hi Zhizho, this is my respond to your discussion. Yes, I am afraid of getting very old because I would not be able anymore to do the things I usually do during my younger years. That is why, while we can still do what we want, we have to do it now. We've only got one life so we may as well accomplish something that the world will be benefited more than can be conveyed and give ourselves something to remember and be truly proud of when we look back in our old age and reflect on our life. What better way to keep the fabric of society together than to plant a seed of friendship and cooperation that will never die. That said, we can be sure that those who come after will say of us that in our time, we did everything that could be done. We finished the race, we give them peace of mind, we give them the true value of unity.

I got your point friend and I agree with it.Just do something when we can do and fill your age with goodness.So,when you growing old,we could look our past age as sweet memories,proud of our life.So,we don't need to afraid about growing old because what we plant now,we'll get the result letter.

I try to enjoy my life as much as I can and not think about because it's a life cycle and everyone will get old one day and say goodbye to the world. I don't want to think about getting old now, it just makes you feel down. Just like when you are little, people ask you what you want to be when you grow up, most of us don't think about it until later in the future when we get older. You can't stop aging but you can try to make yourself younger by using some anti-aging products and eating healthy to live longer.

To be really honest, I am really afraid to grow old. Afraid not because of getting weak and not looking young anymore. Its more like I don't want to be a burden to my family. We know how hard it is to take care of old people. here in my place we do not put our the old people in house for the aged instead they are being taken care by some of the family members.

Hi.Thanks for your response.You are right,there are many people who doesn't want to be a burden to their family.I know from my mom and my sister who stay with my grandma.I think,it's not solution to put old people in house for the aged because I think,it's time to us to reply our parent's merit.

There are only two choices in life. Grow old or die which would you prefer.
