“I personally think that there are many positive views of aging in our society and more people embrace aging. Society is more focused on who the person is, not their age. I interact with older adults everyday at work. It makes me think that age is just a number and how you live is more important.

The funny thing is, the older I get, the more I feel young. I don’t worry much about changes related to age. I usually accept it and if the change is uncomfortable for me, I try to fix it or solve the problem.

I am more worried about my parents. Me growing older means they are growing old too so when something major happens to them, I wonder if I can be there to help. This is what scares me the most about aging.”
