We are so bound by what we see and hear about what we should have and do. I'm not saying l'm not effected by this but l do keep my mind as free as I can. Do you

Not at all, I do my own thing. If others don't like it too bad.

Actually, I find being older very freeing in this one respect - I don't worry anymore about being in fashion or "fitting in." Not saying I wear or do anything outlandish. But I'm more likely to just do what feels right to me, wear what I'm comfortable in, etc. than I was when I was younger. If that's a kind of "ageism" towards myself, then so be it.

But Penny, did you realize you posted the same question 3 times?
