Leaning in to aging out
I find it particularly refreshing to have stumbled upon this network. The micro-tiktok trend doesn't suit my needs for connection and emotional oversharing either.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts on aging. The line about limiting beliefs really stuck with me and is something that we have talked a lot about amongst ourselves at SSC. It is nice to hear other women feel the same pressures or get into similar thought patterns.
Yeah. I am the same age as you and really bothered by my 11 lines. Every day I’m like I should just get Botox!!! My eternal struggle. I don’t color my greys either. I find myself missing feeling “attractive”. This is embarrassing to admit! I don’t exist for the male gaze! I *intellectually* know that aging is a gift but little things like this surprise me.
this is a comforting read. growing older sounds genuinely freeing 🥰
There’s so much good in this essay but most importantly, earplugs at concerts make the whole experience so much more enjoyable, they are life changing
