Almost 50 and starting to hate mirrorsPage 7 of 7    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)
While having a skin cancer screening, I told the doc, "I never realized I would come to hate my skin so much!" And I don't like it at all -it's wrinkly, has brown spots, falls here and there...but as a "feminazi" I totally resent the opinions that women were taught by the feminists to look like construction workers - nothing could be further from the truth! What we taught was to be comfortable with who you are and make your own decisions as to who that person is and if that includes makeup, styled hair, so be it, just don't want to be judged as a piece of meat instead of a warm, giving loving human being. I do not like getting older and my appearance, but it sure beats the alternative and I can be oh-so-grateful I am not lying in a burn unit somewhere, dying from skin cancer or merely surviving on a few grains of rice per day - it's all in one's perspective as to what is and what is not important. We all age, like it or not...

50 years old is not crucial," I believe that beauty first before age." I am 56 years old and I thank God that I reach this age because not every one is lucky to reach this age. Beauty is not really, on the smoothness of facial or greying hair and bikini body but the kindness ,compassion to others and a passion for life. The wisdom that I gathered on my years makes me tranquil,loving,wise and appreciate what the providence hand to me. Ps my photos was taken 3 months ago

I AM past 50 and figure if I made it this far then I made if for a reason. But I do agree with alot of the posts you got. Do things for you now. Whenever I hear a comment about someone approaching 50 I just tell them they are at the age where they should say "so what" to everything. We had our days at being young and firm and now its our age to say YEAH we made it! Just relish in the fact that you can laugh at how dumb some of these youngsters are. Get yourself a nice car, dye your hair and look around you. I guarnatee you there is another woman out there who is younger then you and going thru the same feelings, we all do. I just put the mirror in a different bedroom so i don't have to see myself til I am ready to go out. And NEVER go out without taking pride in yourself and looking good at least for you!!!!!

We started in diapers.. Yep we will end up that way.

Ive never won the war with the mirror,,anyway that I turn it doesnt look right..
Just for the record, I work out 6 days a week, I do physical labor, I dress appropriatly, I have manners, brush my teeth.. have manners and dont judge others..
Because I know how much trouble I go through , I dont need to add to anothers.
Stevelfun: Love the Ibuprofen,,,Yeah BABY!!! Just waitin for the GERITOL to kick in..
Want a good laugh,,get 2 mirrors, so you can see front and back..You might want some tequilla first And the threading thing..How many threads can you get at one time..is it only for you face????? Other parts need love tooo!!!!!

heartuvgold: We can not be 18 yrs young forever, You can be beautiful at any advance age. Think* beauty first before age*...The trick is to invest on moisturizing creams and hair coloring , facial and body exercises, make up etc. But the real trick is to love and cherish yourself and have a loving heart to others... Check my profile eh, not bad for 56, these are pics are only less not a year old...

Honey don't hate that mirror- Look in it and smile let it be your best friend
tell yourself that you are someone that a age is just a number and that your
young at heart and be proud to be here on God's Earth. Turning 50 OMG I'll
be doing that in Three months and I'm in my sexual prime and at my best and
looking forward to climing that hill cause to me I am someone and I'm happy
to be alive here on earth and having the love , support of my family and friends.
Learn to love the mirror tell ya self dang I'm looking good if I do say so myself!
Smile sweety count those wrinkles and I find gray hair sexy so be happy with who
you are all the best to you in life and love.
