Society has so many expectations, rules and demands.
In our youth we aim to please. To create an image of ourselves that won't be held up to criticism.
I have found the greatest freedom in being middle-aged. I simply don't care any more what others think of what I do, how I act or who I associate with.
Advancing age is quite liberating. Though I may yearn for the physical attributes I held when I was young, I never want to go back to that insecure, fearful girl I once was.
I think the term 'grey-power' says it all.
