Why Me?

Many people wonder why older people complain so much. While some seniors are chronic complainers, for many complaining is a new occurrence. Constant complaining could be rooted in a variety of causes such as poor health or prescription medications that can have serious side effects including a personality change. According to recent research on senior women, one of the most common sources of complaining stems from boredom. Women no longer in the workforce or raising children and socializing with friends often feel they have lost their sense of purpose. If you have a loved one you think may fall into this category help them find an interest or pastime to keep them engaged and feel needed. The women featured in DON'T FORGET YOUR SWEATER, GIRL stress that finding a new purpose in life, something bigger than themselves leads to a more positive second half of life. And this purpose can come in a variety of ways such as volunteering, learning a new skill, or joining a new social group. http://bit.ly/SistertoSister
