Why anyone took time out of their day to create an image like this is beyond me, but this depiction of an older Kim Kardashian just might be enough to give me bad dreams for weeks to come.
And no, I'm not horrified because she looks awful as a little old lady, because the truth is, this particular photo actually shows the aging process being pretty kind to her. (Why wouldn't it? She's a Kardashian, for crying out loud.)
Sure, she looks a bit more haggard as a somewhat elderly person, but not nearly as wrinkly or saggy as you'd imagine. And yes, she looks sorta like mom Kris Jenner.
But can you even think for one second about generating a similar image of yourself 30 or 40 years down the road?
OMG. I'm absolutely shuddering at the thought. Yes, I'm all for aging gracefully and not going under the knife or getting any Botox or other sort of cosmetic enhancement to make myself look younger, because that stuff scares the heck out of me.
But I'm no dummy, and I certainly don't expect to look fresh and youthful naturally when I'm in my 60s and 70s. Unfortunately, that's not the way it works, and at some point or another, things start to shrivel up, sag, and go further and further downhill with each passing year.
At least when I'm that age, however, the aging process will have hopefully happened gradually over time, so I won't notice the lines, spots, wrinkles, and loose skin -- or at least they won't bother me too much. But if someone busted out a photo now and gave me a glimpse into how I'm going to look when I'm a grandmother, I'd probably spend the rest of my life feeling ugly, depressed, and fairly hopeless at the horror of what's to come.
Yep. Whoever made this image can keep it for the Kardashians. Regular 35-year-olds like me simply aren't brave enough to go there.
Would you oppose to seeing an "older" picture of yourself?
