I have often ask, “Do you know why older people are so sensitive?” quickly followed by my version of the answer; “It is because unlike joy which is somewhat limitless, our ability to deal with rejection which is the source of most sadness, is like being born with a book of tickets. Each time we face rejection we would use one or more tickets. As we grow older, we realize that we still have a long life ahead of us but not enough tickets left. So we choose our battles and weather the rest”.

  1. A beautifully caught image, and some deep thoughts to go with it.

  2. Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking the time and actual effort to make a top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.
