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?

Worst of Both Worlds

Wow! You have to deal with a man's midlife crisis and a woman's self esteem issues. I cannot relate, but it might be a good idea to address one at a time.

It sounds like you are comfortable with your sexuality which is a good thing.
