I'm 25 years older than OMG-he-didn't-call-me-back and 25 years younger than I-wonder-if-this-is-my-last-birthday. So I'm right where I want to be.
It isn't always easy getting older. But this is not the time to simply give up, give in and hide away in fear. On the contrary, this is probably the most important time for you to rise up and stare those fears down.
So is this where cougars, short term marriages, early mid-llfe crises and, most of all, an illusion that the years are something to be ashamed of come into play?
