In my world, well maintained women of 50 look great.
50, still. But great.
And while, by comparison to average women, they look years younger, I can see them coming and going.
Problems arise when women lose touch with what people around them actually see when they look at them.
It’s kind of like older men in arrested adolescence who express shock when women half their age call them daddy.
Self-actualization is a hard pill to swallow, and it cuts both ways.
This is why therapy should be a part of maintenance. alongside dental visits and annual physicals.
