I also found out, at a younger age than was typical in my industry, that the more responsibility and higher pay you receive as a manager and above level...makes you quickly feel older.

When I was perfectly able to stand, but people on the Paris Metro got up to give me their seat.

When I was 49 I had all three kids out of high school and was feeling pretty young, a month later my oldest got married so I was doing great. And yet a month later, still 49 I was diagnosed with cancer and started chemo and have felt old ever since...

Smile You Asked to Feel Old

Some look for reasons to feel bad. Example: Why do you celebrate Birthdays. They are to highlight that you just moved older..why do you think about feeling old, like this question and answer. Some look for reasons to feel old. I still believe one of the biggest killer is STRESS and we do a lot to give ourselves stress. As my 102 year old grandfather said.."You people worry too much". He had been a sheriff, a farmer,etc and I never remember him being stressed. He had a great "just accept it" as a way of living.

Some days I feel like I am sixteen and some days like a hundred and sixteen.

I think I knew I had passed some point when I discovered there were no answers to some questions I have.

I thought I was young when a bartender said " What can I get you sir? That happened many years ago but it opened the floodgates of many sirs to come. Now I take it as a sign of respect.

I do not feel old (71) but I do seem to have more "events" lately.

I am; however, thankful that after 15 minutes, I have coffee, work out the kinks, find my bearing and am ready for the day. I am happy to say that I still do all my own yard work, fix my own plumbing as needed etc, etc..
Well, i feel great now and ready for a new project.

Happy aging to all.
The first day I when to work and realized I would be chained down for long, long, time. Now, that I free of the chains, I no longer want to the stuff when I was young.
