Tenderness and trust

By 19. July 2022No Comments

Life only gives you the tasks that you are capable of handling.


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

41 years old, 4 children, three of them from a triplet, divorced, animal lover, nature lover, Customer Experience Manager

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

I live with my husband in a beautiful house with a garden. We have many robots that support us in our everyday life. Our children live nearby and there is always life in the house, we always have visitors

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

My children, my grandchildren, my partner and my friends are the most important people in my life. We spend a lot of time at home and in the garden

What is your sex and love life like in the future?

Sex is no longer in the foreground, but rather, a lot of togetherness, tender touches, a deep inner connection that feeds the love

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

A healthy diet, daily check-ups using technology, being socially engaged

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

I have built up sufficient savings

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?

I help protecting nature and caring for animals

If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

Not to regret anything in life, but to always see everything as an opportunity to grow as a person. Life only gives you the tasks that you are capable of handling, and everyone should trust that.
