Who is feeling some fear?
And who wants to be an ostrich and pretend it is not going to happen?
Most people are ambivalent about getting older. There is the ‘I feel more myself, I am more comfortable saying no and I am looking forward to have more time to do what I love doing’. But there is also the ‘I am concerned about my health, dementia runs in my family and lots of people get very lonely’.
A mixture of joy and fear.
