Maintaining Self-worth as we Age

How does one maintain Self-worth as they age? A recent video I posted on North Star Senior Advisor’s Facebook page, which I’ve shared below, touched me more than I thought it would. In the video you see an elderly lady speaking about what she saw in the mirror and how she maintains her self-worth by caring about what is on the inside rather than the outside. As we get older we tend to criticize ourselves more than anyone else. We try so hard to not become an antique, that we forget we are a living gem of unimaginable worth. This video makes so many great pointers that it’s truly food for your soul. The elderly lady mentions that we tend to look at the gift wrap and not the gem that is contained inside. Which is very true and that is why we should always learn how to appreciate ourselves and becoming older should not be an exception. The wrinkles we gain, the scars we attain and the grey hairs we grow, should not be frowned upon. We should consider our bodies as a roadmap that shows everything we have been through and have conquered throughout the years. You are the only you in this world, so keep striving to become all you can be.
