My mother told me the other day that one of her friend’s mom passed away and a few days back some other friend’s mom-in-law passed away. I told her that she is at a stage in her life where all she will hear is someone’s parents or in-laws dying. I know it is hard but get used to it.
I also told her that at my age, all I hear is someone either getting married or having kids. I don’t check Facebook anymore because all I see there is friends either posting pictures of their wedding or their kids doing hundreds of poses, all of which look the same to me.
Anyway, that being said, its kind of amazing and scary to see how things change as you grow. From a kid to a teenager to a responsible adult. There was a time when we didn’t have to think twice before eating something and now all we do is think before eating.
There was a time when we were so active that we did not have to worry about doing 3hours of physical activity in a week. There was a time when remembering phone numbers was not a problem. When we did not have to worry about carrying pills or checking credit card balance.
Life changes as we grow, it doesn’t wait for you to accept it. It doesn’t wait for you to mature, it doesn’t wait for you to get used to it. The sooner you learn to embrace it, the merrier it will be.
