Too Old

I was talking with a guy the other day who is in his 40’s and all I could think was that he is too old. Too old for what? Too old to have low self-esteem.

With age, you should not have low self-esteem, but if you do, you need to pull yourself together and pretend like you don’t to the outside world.

I hate myself, but I don’t have low self-esteem. Why? Well, because I am a better person than a lot of others, which in and of itself is rather frightening.

I understand feeling bad about yourself when you are younger because you are awkward and unsure, but how does a person enter midlife with these feelings?

As an adult you should have better coping mechanisms.

Who is going to respect a person who does not have self-worth? Nobody, that’s why when you are young and you display your low self-respect you get eaten alive by your peers, they see your weakness and they attack.

I’m too old for a lot of things like knowing who JoJo Siwa is or knowing the lyrics to Cardi B’s Money, but also for low self-esteem.
