We live in a youth-obsessed society, that tells us our value declines as we get older. Simply being alive implies growing older, but after a certain point, what may lie ahead becomes more real. We may desire something that we can’t humanly have, as we are made to believe that our youthfulness is our ticket to remain relevant. Then, we might feel shamed for not better preserving that youth. It’s exhausting. And it’s merciless. Instead of seeing aging as something to fight, what joys can we amplify to mitigate the losses of youth, so that we continue to embrace who we are?
