The aging factor stereotype has been endured and has taken in numerous counts to the behavior that varies to one another. Let me make it simple for you, old age is also known as the second childhood as a stage of life where the lifecycle returned to its beginning. We’ll not step into the scientific reason to know why this happens, but to let you guys know that it feels like being in late adulthood. In this stage, the body sees many changes, physically as well mentally, the more wrinkles are shown in the skin, the more it starts lowering the functioning of the brain, which leads on to act opposite to their age.
Life after the 50s?
The thought sounds quite responsible and stressful because you’ll be in the middle of your life, though life is full of uncertainties we can take it as a rough guess. We never think about our parents who are already in this phase, rather we tend to complain all the time that they’re acting weird nowadays. They are not weird but the changes they face are. You should encourage them to follow their curiosities and their hobbies, what they’d wished once but couldn’t be reached, and if you’re already in your 50’s and reading this, forget if their any society exists and what will they say if you pursue your passion at this age, they’ve got a mouth, so they gonna say it anyway whether it’s good or not. Do what you’d ever dreamt of, whether it’s traveling, connecting to new people or communities, learning something new, or could be anything, also if you’re single and seeking a partner to live the life with, just give it a shot. You might be facing opposition from your family or society, but remember they’re gonna leave you alone one day anyway. So, do what your heart says!
One might feel like being a burden on their children because now it’s their time to serve their parents. Who feels their parents are a burden, some left them in an old-age home, some left them alone in their home, or some left them open over the road alone. We have seen movies like Baghwan, lead by Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, a drama film depicting the harsh reality of today, where one parent can raise their 4 children together but when their parents step into old age, then their children set such a cruel arrangement that they make their parent’s hearts bleed.
It’s just an example of a drama movie, but a couple of months earlier, as the case came into the rise when the son of an old lady of ’70s left her alone on the train and didn’t come. The woman came into the eyes when people noticed that the lady hadn’t moved from her seat for 2 days in a row and had nothing in hand, no food, no money, no nothing, then the local police took her to the nearby old age home and made the arrangements for her stay. My point is to show the cruelty of the man who left her mother who’d taken him in her womb for 9 months straight and to heat up the fested(toxic) mentality of the people towards their helpless and obligate parents who want nothing but their children’s love and care.
Relive your glory days
Never think of old age as an age of being left helpless, this is almost an age where you’ve achieved almost everything you thought once in your life, you are almost free from every responsibility, and it’s now time to revive those adulthood days whether with your partner or by enjoying your own company. Consider this as your glorifying time, re-enhance your vibes and soul, bring the new in you. Be limitless and change the definition for all boundaries of aged hypocrites.
