Getting Old Is HardI've never considered myself an overall beauty but I had a nice face. There are remnants of it, yes but it's definitely fading fast.
And, life has a way of showing on your face.
It makes me wish I was more resilient - maybe I could have stalled the inevitalbe.
There are always beauty treatments but then I wouldn't be able to eat so it's definitely robbing Paul to pay Peter - not an option.
Besides, I can still 'live" without feeling attractive.
Then there are stages when it all gets too hard to keep it all together and if you have to sacrifice something, the outside crumbles to protect the inner sanctum.
And whilst it was nice to rely on it to avoid really "engaging" in social situations....I mean, well....if the focus was on the way I "looked" then I didn't have to come outside myself much.
Now the time has come to face the inevitable and I will have to find myself and face a new dawn.
