    "Do not regret growing older. It's a privilege denied to many."

    Hi.
    Please teach me about the meaning of it. I'm at a loss how to interpret this saying.

    My try.
    Don't regret to become an old man/woman. Because growing older is a privilege of you. Many people cannot become older, but you have the privilege to become older.
    It doesn't make sense.

    My another try;
    "Growing older " is not the matter of aging. It is a figurative expression of "becoming mature".
    So,
    Don't regret to become older, because becoming older means becoming mature. And only a few people are allowed to become mature.
    Fortunately, you're the one, so please do not regret.


    Am I understanding correctly?
