To think that someone in their 40's, 50's or early 60's is not old?

I am a fed up of hearing people who are fairly young moaning about being old and how it limits them. Obviously if they have a medical condidtion it is different. AIBU?

My great uncle always said that the 60's were the playground of old age, he lived to be 90 I think and was young the whole time I knew him.

On the other hand I am 40 and was born an old lady...

I am 42 and don't think of myself as old. Have some nephews who are catching me up though!

I used to think that 40 was old, but as I am rapidly hurtling towards it, I have now revised my thoughts and would agree with you that early 60s isn't that old at all.

I am in my 50s and I would hate people to think I was old!

I don't think age limits people that much any more, if it ever did. But I guess some parts of growing up - like having bills, a job, a partner, children - limits your choices to some extent. That's not about being "old" though, it's about not being a child any more.

You change your mind on age as you get older. I am going to age disgracefully! I certainly don't let age limit me.
