Don’t ever be ashamed of your age. I know some of us haven’t had some things before, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have it now. For example you never had a girlfriend, never married, and your 47 years old. In fact it’s never too late of reaching that goal. Some people start late in their age of becoming famous celebrities, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Most people have gained things way before us, but we can have most positive things happen to us at any age. Be proud of your age, and forget being depressed about it. There are times for anything like having a college degree at any career. I think we feel ashamed of this, because we see most people have positive stuff happen to them way before us. This isn’t a reason to feel bad about it just because you haven’t for example had many friends at your 20’s. Think of it this way your age brings wisdom and courage. It brings great expectations and great hope for you. Once you see the movie Failure To Launch about a man who didn’t get out of his parents’ home and it’s in his forties or thirties. At the end of the movie he go out of his parents’ home by marrying a nice woman and he didn’t feel ashamed by it. To make you feel better I never had many friends in high school, but I have many friends now. Once you graduate in school it doesn’t matter what happened before and after school. Some loners give up and think it’s too late to do anything. I never give up and am proud of trying to accomplish my dream of becoming a genre fiction novelist. I keep fighting. I am a warrior. You are going to hear many stories from average and famous people who overcame their problems. The simple logic is they’ve believed in themselves. This could be you. I believe in myself. Do you? The journey and answer is up to you. The next days will be brighter once you embrace your age, past and present.
