Are you growing older? As growing old is a responsible task still there are few things that are difficult to realize unless felt into the situation. No one can tell you some basic facts that a person faces as they grow old. A few of the facts you should know to stop hurting yourself are as follows:
You need good friends and family
It does not matter if you are a millionaire or a simple office clerk. As you grow older it is a time you want to spend time at home with family. When you are outside instead of working or earning there is a need for a friend.
So, a person should never be so intimated to work and earning, that they don’t have their friends and families later. When in need especially after 60, despite several works a person needs them. Ageing turns to make a person feel weak and lonely, family and friends are the strength.
No one owes you
Yes, it is true! No one owes you anything, this is the first thing to keep in the mind. It will always keep you strong, enabling you to stay happy. You will be able to stop expecting from anyone it can be from your friends or your family. It is hard to train the mind in this way but if it is possible then you are your own master.
You may end up alone
At the end of the day, you will find yourself alone. There may be anyone around but the mind will always want to be one it’s own. It seeks for its own space in which a person thinks about himself. The job he has done and the results within the upcoming days.
Beloved will not always be with you
Once again you will not be able to stay with your close ones always. It is not possible unless you and your close ones have the same lifestyle. Your children are the close ones, so are parents but it never tries to hold them. At a point in time, you will find yourself away from them. It can be due to a change of your thinking or it can be your need to relocate.
Don’t depend on anyone
There are many stages of life you will feel completely alone. On certain difficult times, no one can help you to rise to accept your decisions and determinations. Few tasks are necessary to be completed by your own calibre and interests. Seeking help often does not help rather it increases the problems keeping your mind confused. So, try to stay independent.
Be proud of yourself
Always be proud of yourself. Never let yourself down, remain open to the world and it will return lots of pleasure to you. Whatever you do should be a reason to be proud? If guilty then overcome with a valid reason to remain with your pride and happiness.
Self-appreciation makes you happy
When did you make your last cup of tea? Or, is it that you like to make your own cup of tea? If you like your own hand made tea or food then you love your own company. Self-appreciation can always keep you always from ignorance and lowering of confidence.
As you grow old it is necessary to clear your mind from any kind of unreal expectations. Also, remove any wrong thoughts that may disappoint a person growing old.
