I have had these same thoughts for most of 2020, and I am turning 60 in November. Several years of ill health and managing a changing body have played havoc with my self-confidence. I recently went to my GP, a wonderful woman. For the first time, someone listened to me. Her response has changed my life. She said you are in good shape, your weight and vitals are fine. You are intuitive about your body and take care of it. You have nothing to worry about, you have beautiful skin and hair. As she was standing up, the doctor looked at me and said, my assistant, can’t believe you are 59. At that moment, my life and outlook changed. I can’t turn back the clock and be younger but I can enjoy my life and be thankful for all I have: rewarding work, a loving family, and a sweet dog who greets me at the door every night. Please try and enjoy your life, don’t worry about caring too much, you are who you are and the world is better for you being in it.
