I Feel Like My Life Is Over.

I really do.  I'm past the big 30 and moving closer to the big 40.  The tabloids say 40 is the new 30.  Ha.  Only if you can afford the surgery and botox injections.  How do people afford those anyway?  I do my best to keep in shape, but I'm just not turning the heads I used to.  I hate looking in the mirror.   I am married, but I do like to feel attractive.  Men my age are looking at girls barely older than their daughters.  I'm too embarrassed to be a cougar, I guess.  ::LOL::  I wouldn't want a 22 year old stud to notice my stretch marks or c-section scars.  I guess old guys don't have to worry about such things.

 I just really feel like my life is over and now I just exist to serve my family.   I work.  I cook.  I clean.   There is nothing in it for me any longer.  I have turned into my mother.  ARG!!!

Awww, let's start by saying 40 it's the new 30 for real with people living longer and all the beauty treatments. Also confidence is key to turning heads; there is not one thing sexier. Three detox. You will feel better about yourself.

I was reading the post of LadydeWinters (in her Late 30's then... ) desperate plea about old age,the("horrible") ageing process,consequent" loss" and perhaps "only" gain(Of wrinkles I presume?).Why do you fear old age more than death itself, since you have not yet experience it(old age) ?
If life has only left you with only few wrinkles and a couple of stained teeth....please count yourself lucky.Much love. Michelle

Have you watched the dvd BEST EXOCTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL, yet?
Please do. I beg you.Watch this movie!
It will most defenitely re-ignite all your flames, for life itself... Perhaps also for love if you dont look for it at all.
(and just trust you are where you are suppose to be at this point in time)

Me too... its always about every one else anymore and yea there is sex and youth every where around.. seems even when I do the face,the lace all of it, it doesn't matter to my spouse. No dancing, nothing fun. It makes me so sad because my heart is still very young! I feel like I'm just disappearing.

God loves you.

Never been pretty and now at 55 I dont care anymore about being pretty. I wonder what all the fuss is about and why. I put on the "face" every morning, go to work and the days blur. how can there be so many people in the world and there are so many of us that feel this way. Why are we here? Am I where I am supposed to be?

beautiful soul..... you are beautiful and your light shines as well as a 18 or 20 yr old girl... it just me YOU have 2 realize that YOU are perfect... accept ..... thats a key word for you... thank you for sharing

Johnny 179 How do I look outside the dotted lines? I'm being sincere, not snide. I did a huge career change a few years ago because I wasn't happy in my old job path. It's helped some. Perhaps I need a new set of friends. ::LOL:: Congrats on the new marriage!

Dont be silly. Chage your life around. I am 49 and just re-married and have 20 or thirty or forty years of loving planned. Its never too late to start again. Look outside the dotted lines look at the good things in life and what you can do not what you don't want to do.
