With age comes health - more from Robert Bly

Continuing on this book and the general theme of manhood, is the natural aging process.  As I share this..., age is (or has been) creeping up on me; the realities that my physique is morphing into an older version without any chance of reversal or "anti-aging".  I can pretend that I am younger but then there is reality, right? 

In Iron John, Robert Bly remarks,  "I know men who are healthier at fifty than they've ever been before, because a lot of their fear is gone." 

In this potential fear-less aging is mental or emotional maturity, "because a lot of fear is gone."

What fear(s) do I mean?  To answer that, I ask another question: 
What fear(s) do you have?
