Fine, I Will Get Older, But Does Everyone Else Have to As Well?? November 2, 2011Posted by lisawifemom in Random Thoughts and Observations.

I actually really don’t want to get older, physically anyway. Mentally I’m pretty much loving it, except for the stereotypical crap, the crap we hated hearing when we were younger, “it’s too loud,” “that skirt is too short,” “I can’t eat spicy food late at night,” etc.
However, it’s all a part of life and I’m learning to accept it. What I’m not learning to accept though is watching my loved ones around me get older. I’m having a really hard time thinking about my family members as older, and worse yet, what that means. When my mom, aunts, uncles and in-laws were 10-20 years older than me ten to twenty years ago, it was nothing, we all functioned pretty much the same. But now that I’m older, them being 10-20 years older than me is starting to look different, I see them aging just like me, and I hate it. I want them to live forever, imagining growing old without them is very painful.
