Q: My wife is the center of attention. Not only is she beautiful, her personality is magnetic and she’s
always giving back to our community and to the less fortunate throughout the world, putting everyone
else’s needs above her own. I, on the other hand, am not even half the person she is. The love handles
have crept in over the years, I have a receding hairline and my crow’s feet make me look like, well, a
human scarecrow. I spend most of my spare time lately on the couch watching re-runs of my favorite
childhood shows online. I didn’t used to be like this. What can I do to get back to the energetic college
kid I was that wooed my wife to marry me shortly after graduation so many years ago?
A: I love the way you see the beauty in others especially in your wife. The way you describe her and
admire her is the kind of admiration any woman would envy. As you describe yourself, it does sound
like you are feeling down. It concerns me to find this once energetic college kid lying on a couch all
day. Age can slow you down a bit, but it seems you’re still young and may be experiencing a mid-life
crisis. A routine check-up by your physician is recommended just to make sure you are not depressed.
When you look at yourself in the mirror it’s important to love the reflection you see. If you don’t, you
could work on your physique by exercising, eating healthier or considering a cosmetic procedure.
You speak so positively of others. Start to speak more positively of yourself. Find your passion! Look
back and revive those things you liked most about your life. Bring it back and improve it with your
newfound knowledge and life experiences.
