How to Accept Growing Old

How to Accept Growing Old

Last update: 24 May, 2016

Every stage of life is marked by different evolutionary aspects, such as the innocence of childhood, the spontaneity of youth and the maturity of adulthood. However, when life brings us closer to old age, sometimes we have trouble valuing, accepting and enjoying this final stage of life.

Old age is marked by physical and mental deterioration that we at times don’t accept. This generates conflicts and  difficulties in our adaptation to new life circumstances. But still, we must try to enjoy each one of our stages, without leaving out this last one.

As we were saying, each evolutionary stage has its own characteristics, which we tend to accept and evolve with, without too many emotional conflicts. This process is important: in order to reach the next stage in life, we necessarily have to live the previous one.
