    My son, not quite 13, and I share a lot at his bedtime every night. Before he goes to sleep, we lie together in the dark and sometimes he tells me about his dreams and aspirations, sometimes about issues he's dealing with, sometimes he asks questions about stuff, sometimes I just...

    The years! I'm 41 and so miserable and depressed about it. Just a moment ago I was in my early thirties and my twenties just a little earlier than that. I don't know how I became 41. It's like a horrible lie someone told and now it's gained credence. It's not about the...

    Well I look in the mirror

    and see the gray hairs starting to show up in my beard. Never thought about getting older until now. Have a long life to live yet but it's kind of funny seeing the grays, lol.

    I hate getting older.

    Not for my own aging, but that of everyone around me. My uncle passed away today. I have had several older family members pass away this year, and it scares me to think who might be next.

    As We Age Our Loved Ones Get Older

    I Know

    Especially since I had such a miserable childhood and growing up for me was the pits. Also, there are so many things I always wanted to do when I was younger, but now it's too late because of my age. I wish there was such a thing as the fountain of youth.

    I guess a lot of people on here are going to think that I'm still too young to complain, because a lot of people on here are in their 40's, 50's, and beyond; however, if we can all remember, things can start to change in our early 30's. I will be turning 32 in five months. The...

    Older On The Outside.

    Ok, I admit it, I'm getting older.. physically. Not that you would actually guess it really, except a little extra padding around the middle which I'm working on. I have good hair genetics and when I have a haircut there are very few grey hairs visible even on the temples of my...

    I'm fifteen, and I'm just scared to death of my life slipping away from me. I haven't done anything remotely important and if I died today, I would have  no lasting effect on the world. As I get older, I know that this mindset will just stay with me until whenever I do die...

    43

    43 is a difficult age for me and probably for all women. Yes, we CAN have more children but we probably will not. You begin to look at your children and feel sadness that you will not be able to see another day one of a precious life. Of course I love my children, but I miss...
