Aging and the end of life

the font can be bigger

I want to be in my own age, age of 37. People could say that I’m not young anymore and the old age is so close. But…this is not true. I want to be in my age and not some other age because, as I think, I have enough life wisdom and experience, I had so many happy moments in life which I will not forget. I don’t want to be younger because the problems which I have already had, they’d cover me again. And in my case, I had to overcome so many difficulties in my life and I did it with success, not always but mostly with success. It was too difficult for me to raise children alone but anyway I’m happy that I have my angels and that I’m strong due to all these difficulties. I really like my age. I’m still attractive, in enough good shape, I’m healthy and in a good mood. I’m always trying to be optimistic even in rainy days. I want to live a long life but I don’t want to become senile, I want to control myself and the situation around me, I want to be able to solve all my problems myself without any help. Well, if my children help me – this is so pleasant, but this doesn’t mean that I cannot do this myself (in particular now). But on the other hand, why being old is bad? It is not at all. You will not have to work, you will not have to worry about some serious things, you’ll just sit down in your chair and watch TV or just go swimming, or just go for a walk for the whole days without poignant thoughts that you must cook for your children at this time and you must launder for your children….everything a person will have to do is just do what he wants to do and when he wants to do. Old age can have one serious negative side – bad health. But if you are doing your exercises every day and keep being a lively person, your health will be good and your physical shape will be no worse than some other people.

I want to be young and I feel myself young, and it seems to be that this feeling will be with me for along life if not for the rest of my life.

John Swift said: “All people want to live a long life, but nobody wants to be old”.

Many of us, to tell the truth, are very afraid of old age. We are afraid of loneliness and changes of our social status, we are afraid of illnesses and our helplessness, we are afraid to lose our external attractiveness, we are afraid to become not interesting to our own children and grandchildren.

People state that individual’s aging is a multifarious, difficult and genetically conditioned process. It is impossible to avert it but it is possible to slow down it, this is absolutely possible. A person becomes old and very old only in the case if he allows this himself; it is possible to be old at thirty-forty years old and at ninety-100 years old – only to be elderly. Everybody has three ages – astrological or calendar, biological and psychological. The calendar age id defined by the quantity of spent years, biological is based at the functional state of the inner organs and blood-vascular system; and psychological age a person defines independently by orienting at subjective perceptions. In youth, usually, the psychological age is overstated but with years – vice versa.
