Here is some advice from someone in her fifties, Elaine White, who is presently is an empty nester, speaker and a life coach.
Life advice - To young people in any circumstance…the world is not the same as it was for your parents and your forebears. They confronted challenges that were unique for their time and understanding. You will confront others. What matters is HOW you do it. How’s that? With love. Love for yourself, your family, your neighbor, and yes, your enemies. It will not be easy, I’m sorry to say. But, at the end of your days, you will know that you have done your best to learn to love and to pass on that love to the next generation.
