Can you face the fact that you are getting older?

All of us get older. This is for sure. But some of us cannot accept it. They are hiding from the reality using plastic surgery and go to cosmetic and spa saloons. Me, I think each age has its own charm and we should live it as it is without fighting against it. What do you think?

I think that people are cowards for just changing they're body because they want to look good, its just ridiculous. Why change yourself, unless you needed it? I think that you should love yourself for who you are, and what you look like no matter what you look like. Beauty is only skin deep, and people keep pileing plastic up on top of they're skin.

I think the most difficult thing is to accept and love yourself as you are. When I was a teenager I was never happy with myself but now I would not change or want to be somebody else.

i think truely accepting yourself as you are can only come with age. For me the realisation that i am as i am and this is all i will ever be did not dawn on me until i turned 40 blessed be

Ok... I am the dissenting voice again. I am turning 40 in a month and I must admit it bothers me. I see myself aging and I miss and long for my youth. I think it all probably has to do with the fact I am going through a nasty divorce and consider the last 14 years of my life wasted, and as time I wont get back. (not including my kids who are the best thing ever). cheers

i hate the thought of geting old and wrinkly but i accept it as part of life it happens to everybody. i wont be having any cosmetic surgery. when i do start to age i will just grow old gracefully and hope i can still look good in my 40s and even 50s i do eat healthy and look after myself so maybe i wont look so bad by then.but ill never have surgery. im going to enjoy my youth and beauty while it lasts.

The minute we're born as babies, the aging process starts! And there's no stopping and turning back. Most would feel OK until they reach the age of 50s or 60s. It is not the look that bothers me but the loss of physical strength, memories, agility etc that limit your ability to perform any activities you used to love doing. You now have to review and re-invent your new hobbies and new interests such as gardening, reading and writing. http://healthysite.blogspot.com
