“ The worst part of life is waiting. The best part of life though is having someone worth waiting for” — Anonymous

Gerascophobia. The fear of growing up. Philophobia. Fear of loving. These two things are indeed common phobias. most of us went through this, or maybe even going through it until now. The fear of growing thinking about the future responsibilities and problems of an adult and then look old. The fear of loving someone then thinking maybe it’s not worth it.

Sometimes I wonder what could happen if we do not face these Phobias. Maybe we will never get out of the cage that has been keeping us a child throughout the years we live. Admit it or not, “Growing up” and “Loving” are part of life and eventually, some point in our lives, we have to accept them and live our lives with them. we are not forever children. At some point we have to look out for ourselves and grow old and maybe meet the one that we are “meant to be” for.

Am I afraid of growing old? Ha! No. That’s a simple answer. No. Nobody can stop growing. All of us will grow old, look old and maybe smell old. But its normal. At some point in our lives, we will look at the mirror and see the wrinkled faces, and weak body. But, it’s because we have already done our part in lives and have to rest at that point of life. But that’s a long way ahead. so as children let us enjoy our lives first and think of who we want to be in the future.

Love transcends all material things and even physical beauty. Why? Actually I don’t know. But for me, the thing about love that transcends all is not the pleasure and not the looks. It is the feeling of someone actually cares for you and you actually cares for that someone, and the feeling that you two are actually compatible for each other. And if you love someone fight for it, don’t be afraid, be optimistic, don’t be negative, because that negativity will only bring you anxiety until someday, you couldn’t reach the one you love.
