When you are 90 you will still curl up in a ball like a child if you are in pain. The bucket list did a good job at portraying that.
We get more responsibilities but we still have our core emotions and insecurities.
It is amazing how we go through complete rewirings as we get older. So i have heard it gets easier as you get older.
But then again will it ever be easy? We just have to climb those stairs one at a time and sometimes just step off and sleep on that floor for a little.
