I get so tired of hearing this cliche "age is just a number" or "I don't feel age X." Do you agree with these statements? Why are they necessary?
I agree that one's age is not a stereo type or limitation, but age is NOT just a random number. Your age identifies how long you've been on this earth, how long you've been working at life and "trying". It represents some amount of life experience that you have. So I don't know why people insist that age means nothing. To me, it's something to be PROUD of and honor and respect in others.
As for "I don't feel X age," what does that mean? How do you know what X age feels like, or is "supposed" to feel like. It's all based on preconceived notions that much little basis in fact. If i am age X and I feel how I feel, then I feel what I feel at age X. Who is to say it's right or wrong? Who is to say that someone at a young age is supposed to feel energetic and boundless and that someone at an older age must feel weak and decrepit?
Are you proud of your age, trying to hide from it, embarassed by it? How do you feel towards others of various ages?
Hoping for an interesting discussion, otherwise Rant OFF.
