    I really appreciate this post. I’ve been having a tough time lately, and I realized that I’m lacking healthy, older adults in my life for which to emulate. I’m 25 now and didn’t realize that I would notice such a gap, but as I am becoming an adult myself, I wish there were more people in my life that I could connect with. My professors in college were the closest I had to healthy mentors. I’m determined to keep a positive outlook and only consume social media and content that helps me feel empowered and uplifted. Thank you!

      Hi Samantha,
      Thank you for your comment. You are on the right track. Years ago I ‘adopted’ an older barber called Louis. He gave facials for a cheap price. He was attentive and loving. I imagined he was my Dad saying affirming and uplifting words. Keep noticing the voices, the head nods, and the smiles of delight around you. Spread your social circle; maybe volunteer or attend a faith community. Find welcoming and affirming groups and people. Then one day you’ll be a role model for someone else.
