In the past few months, I’ve been dealing with age-related angst in a serious way for the first time.
“When did that start looking like that?!”
“Is this supposed to be happening so soon?”
I’ve found renewed solidarity and humor in Nora Ephron’s book I Feel Bad About My Neck.
Strangely, though, I would say my self esteem is higher now than it’s ever been (we humans are messy and full of contradictions), even higher than just five years ago when I would have considered my self pretty evolved in terms of self acceptance. Today I realized perhaps that’s because five years ago I was working at a yoga studio in Southern California.
Life tip: if you want to feel good about your self, don’t hang out with people who are habitually on juice cleanses.
