Enjoying Friends in Your Old Age


Just because you’ve gotten older, you’d think that you now need to stay at home and basically live like a hermit. These people often just choose not to do anything and become that typical older person that some have come to recognize. To fully enjoy life, you need to break away from that stereotype.

Many of you may find it difficult to make new friends as you get older. You get nervous with your health and think that if you do something even remotely stressful, your health could eventually pay the price. Yet, there are some of the older members of society who are still able to maintain an active social life.

No matter how old you are, you have every right to enjoy the company of your friends. Why give up your social life in the first place? This could be your source of fuel to live your life more optimistically.

As you become older, you will meet people along the way. These new connections you make can actually become your friends. If you actively seek out activities that expose you to men and women of the same age range, you will see that there are many out there who are just as lonely for company.

In fact, it is more important to get friends during this stage in your life. The younger generation may be too busy with their families and jobs to have time to spend with you. It would be nice to know that there are actually those who are in the same boat.

When you feel isolated, you tend to experience more problems with your health. A poor quality of life is the shortcut to destruction. A good network of pals helps you realize that there is more to life than meets the eye. In fact for some, life began after retirement.

Older people often feel that having a group of great friends is actually more difficult to establish because there are many out there who become less physically mobile.

They are forced to keep themselves confined at home. And because you no longer have your monthly source of income, you may also feel that you now have to think about how much you spend on recreation and entertainment.

Part of life is also the experience of death of a loved one. Aging people have seen the deaths of long time friends. Their circle of social and emotional support starts to dwindle away.

This is probably why it is more crucial to become more active in creating a whole new group for yourself. If you don't this sort of commitment, you will definitely feel the loneliness and isolation.

Getting friends as you grow old may no longer be as easy. But this doesn’t mean that you simply stop trying. After all, you can have that group you were so craving for if you just try hard enough.

No matter where you are, you shouldn’t let yourself become that generic aging person. Friendship is everywhere. Anyone can be your friend, you just have to know what to do and how to become one.

Interesting women in their older years
by: Barbara Bartocci

I say Thank you! each day for the gift of friendships. I'm 73 now and close friendships enrich my life enormously. I have time to spend with friends and I make sure to plan get-togethers. Periodically I host "Evenings for Interesting Women" which bring women of diverse ages together.
I'm speaking at an event for older people in two weeks about the joys of relationships in older years. Friendships keep us younger in mind and spirit.
