It hit me when I was asked “So does the hair coloring helps cover the grey’s?I am planning to get one”. I thought “ What the heck! Yeah I do have few grey hairs but am coloring my hair coz I have been doing it for years and I like it not coz of greying!”. I fumed... When I was younger..people commented “stylish! Looks beautiful” and now it is coz of “greying?” What could be the reason? AGE. So? Now everything I do is connected to aging? The way I dress,behave,think has to change? Isn’t age a biological number? So many questions.It got me irritated.How do I get over this? Be at peace? ACCEPTANCE. I feel physically fit and still have so many dreams and desires like a twenty year old but am supposed to give up all that coz I age?I can’t! However..I need to reprioritize! At 40 years..I should not be worrying about peer pressure,Whether it is okay to work outside or be happy being a homemaker,what my relatives think about me,still hating on my high school bullies who are in my fb account..it is ridiculous yes. I should be calmer and more decisive. I shouldn’t be reacting and take life easier. However..everything goes for a toss when I still see my 72 year old mil competing with me which makes me feel emotionally people will never change but only physically. I change emotionally and then Things will fall in place. How did you accept aging and how did things change for you?
