‘Going with the flow of ageing, not against it’ is the philosophy espoused in an article on Asahi.com, a Japanese enews publication.

According to its author, since ageing is a perfectly natural process bringing maturity and acute life understanding, the expression “anti-ageing” should be replaced by “for ageing”, which implies “a willingness to age with grace, instead of fighting it”.

This attitude would go along way to overcome prejudice about ageing and help everyone accept and understand the elderly.
