I don’t know if it’s so much “comfort” as it is “accepting.” I know the beauty of youth has faded. I’m not seeking to change that through surgeries, that could be life threatening, all for the sake of my vanity. It’s not a comforting thought, but I accept it. I may have an easier time with this b/c I have a husband who has loved me for my authentic self as the decades have passed us by.

Interesting question. It would seem that you read the same books that I do, and are working at less “ego” in your life.

Yes, I do find more comfort now, much more so than in my “early youth”.

Yes, I do, but I live alone and make a point of understanding the perspectives of others, too. The same respect as for mine. It’s easier now to dismiss outright cynicism, where before I would waste energy arguing.

Absolutely! It’s freeing, isn’t it? Aging may sap our energy and bring on aches and pains that won’t go away, but it rewards us with an inner peace that has eluded most of us all our lives. For me personally, I find I am better able to listen to God and what He is trying to tell me.

I don’t think everyone does, it is a very interpersonal development that requires attention just like a garden.

You have grown spiritually, emotionally and have attained a sort of self actualization. Your life currently is stable and satisfaction has been reached. It isn’t for the young to be this self actualized, they are too busy setting the world on fire and learning their life lessons.

Yes, as everything starts to sag and wrinkle, it is hard to have much ego left.But, I do have more comfort from within knowing who I am now and where I have been. All else does not matter.

Sure is grand to be able to throw “ego” out the window when your spirituality grows like this.
