As we continue life past our prime, we hit upon a period where we feel a sense of panic. A sense of dread as to what an ageing future will look like for us. Will we start to look ugly, encounter sickness and pain like the way our ageing parents experienced or are experiencing?
Then we start to regress and try to relive our past glory days as our mortality has dawned upon us, that we are a step closer to death. Perhaps this could be referred to as the midlife crisis. We start to behave differently, unpredictably, perhaps even shamefully. The more subtle manifestation is the constant search on how to maintain or revive our youthful looks.
This desperation will lead us to believe any potion or pill that promises this solution. For those with more cash to burn, cosmetic surgery seems to be the answer. With all the botched surgeries and the resulting monstrous looks, why would people take the risk time and again. Because that need, no matter how desperate, is to be connected to happiness.
We all know that we will age one day, but when that day comes we wont’t accept it calmly. Our denial will lead us to do things we didn’t expect we would actually do. The fading of our once attractive physical looks is enough to depress us especially with a partner looking around and admiring younger, more attractive male and females. The threat of loneliness has now reared its ugly head. But wait, before you start to cut yourself up on the operating table there are other less extreme options. Try the non-invasive procedures first if you feel you have to do something about your looks.
