My PROSPECTIVE on Being OLD….

Getting older for most… is never fun..

Getting older means being treated with less respect and less everything..

Your children started to treat you like you are now the child.. and everything is reversed.. they control your every move….. they now make all your decisions .. you lose your independence..

Everyone treated you like you now have no choice in anything.. you have to succumb to their way… you are left with no personal choice..

When I recognize this…

I get very annoyed and I tried to think of ways and how I can implement stipulations that won’t allow my kids to act in this manner when I get to this age…

But……

How much control will I have when I’m old and all alone in my world…

How do you respond to your children when they talk to as if you are a child .. or if you lack intelligence…

How should you feel when they put you down or try to overpower you with what they think is right.. when you know what you are doing works for you…

Everyone learns differently and yes things change drastically with time..

But…

Does this means you have to give in to their way and give up your independence … allowing them to think and do for you…

I have a son that thinks he is the most intelligent one around and cuss me out letting me know that I am as dumb as they come…

Yessss… this does hurt my feelings.. knowing he has completely forgotten who raised him till he is an adult…

I tried to ignore him at times but I wonder if this is what I have to look forward to this rest of my life..

The utter disrespect… the discrediting of my intellectual intelligence… the putting me down for knowing what I know and sticking with it…

Old age is definitely a bitch…

I guess one does get undermined no matter what age you are..

But ….

It’s really sad when it’s from children you birth and raised to adulthood…

I fear losing control of me… I fear losing my independence..

I fear getting so old that I have to succumb to being treated like a child… and yet I hope I live a long life…

I want to see my grandchildren grow in adults…

But…

I fear the consequences of even being fortunate enough to get this privilege…

We just have to to try maintaining our control as long as we can hold out for… and try not to get too discouraged or upset when these adult children decided to treat us in reverse.. as if they are the the parents and boss of us…

And hopefully most will maintain their respect… and remember that we have earned our independence…
