Female, age 55 – (click on image to enlarge)
Anti-aging product advertising, it’s very annoying. You feel like, am I getting old? Do I have to use it? I’m a mother, a caregiver, I’m a wife and I’m happy. When I was living with my father in my twenties, I felt more pressure living with him then it is now. I have accomplished having my kids, but my goal was to be more in a position to help others. I stopped my education because of having kids and now I just feel like – do I really want to go back to school? But I think I do help people in other ways. I had planned on going into counseling. I wouldn’t change anything in my life. I feel satisfied. I’m most proud of my kids. I see aging as positive because we’re all going to have to get old while we’re alive, so I just live a day at a time. What else can you do? But I would like to travel more, Europe, Asia.
