I challenge any form of discrimination if I am witness to it! However more and more I am aware that I am ageist to myself! Everytime I get up I groan and go ooh! I forget where I have put my keys, letters, have I fed the dog? What do I think - I have dementia! My hair is going thin, but I have plenty growing on my chin! What do I think - growing older is no joke! I still find the same men attractive, just like I did when I was 20 - trouble is they are still 20 and I am 65! I feel I let the side down when I look at 65 year old men and do not find them attractive! I have become a 'grumpy old woman', moan about everything, shout at the telly and can't remember how many times I say 'why do we keep repeating the same old mistakes' especially in relation to politics. On the other hand:
I love Coldplay, Will I Am, playing Vintage Sindy with my grand daughter, getting drunk, wearing trendy clothes, wearing ankle boots with a lace dress, having my nails done, having my hair highlighted, swimming, walking the dog, picnics, girly chats with my best friend, sobbing over a sloppy film - I'm not too old after all (not sure about the 20 year old boyfriend.) Oh nearly forgot I love my VW Beetle.
Irritating personality traits haven't softened - do friendships change?
Needed but feeling left out - do others feel the same?
