For Many, Old Age Brings Happiness

9 posts in this topic

Growing old can bring a renewed sense of happiness and wellbeing, despite physical and mental declines, researchers report today in the American Journal of Psychiatry.

The finding adds to growing evidence that aging is not all "doom and gloom," said Dilip Jeste, a professor of psychiatry and neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego. Instead, old age can be a time of growth, and older people can be a helpful resource for younger generations.

"As people get older, they are less bothered by some things that stress them out when they were younger," Jeste said.

There is something to be said for growing old when you look at the alternative.....

"Never fear growing old; there are many who have never had the privilege"

Less about physical age and more about mental age. I believe it to be true especially with the young body old soul type quotes that float around out there and would explain some of the exceptions to the rule.
