Fading beauty ...
by Dillon Chase
I am a mid -40s gay male who was lucky to have looks through my life, even up to now. But the looks are fading seemingly faster every day and I am feeling really overwhelmed by these changes.
It makes me realize that much of my self-worth was based on my appearance, which creates feelings of shame and isolation.
I have a great friend who is always willing to listen to me, however, it is hard to talk about everything I am feeling because of the shame. Anyone else feeling the same?
