Acceptance of one's age is the first step towards enjoying it. Sadly, many people try to hide their real age, and desperately try to look young, while they should feel proud of their age. Perhaps this denial is partly due to the awareness of morbidity and mortality as age progresses. The fear of unknown death can make ones remaining years on this earth quite miserable. Not accepting the ageing process gracefully lowers one's self-esteem, and even develops a sense of insecurity and worthlessness. It is a fact that the younger generation never has time for the older one, and it is futile to expect any generation to change.
