Quotes About Getting Older For Anyone Still Stuck In The Denial Stage

Getting old is a tough pill to swallow.

In fact, some of us have such a hard time accepting it that we just sort of...spit the pill out, and pretend we never even saw the pill in the first place, because ignorance is bliss and we're determined to stay young forever.

If you're also the sort of person who's stuck in the denial stage of aging, I think you're really going to relate to these quotes.

Maybe one day we'll be able to accept that we've had a few more rotations around the sun than others have.

But until then, I'd say we're more than content to stay firm in our denial and continue to comment on how people our age are "really looking old these days."

Like I said, ignorance really is bliss.
