What Kind Of Old Person Will You Be?

 

 

Hey there guys. How was your day? I hope you all are doing well. Today we will be discussing an important topic What kind of old person will you be? Older persons have tons of life experiences and we could learn a lot from them. Many younger generation kids don’t realize this and they do the same mistakes which they could have avoided if only they had listened to their grandparents.

Though this is true that IQ is increasing every decade from at least 2 to 3 basis points but the fact is that only intelligence could not solve all the problems of life. For example it is also seen that maturity comes with age and our prefrontal cortex develops at the age of 25. So there you see that the younger generation might have more IQ than us but the fact is that they don’t have enough maturity to handle it. This is why you might have seen that there are many juvenile cases. In today’s world the children are consuming shit load of content every day of their life.

It is like they are bombarded with information. But how to put that knowledge into real meaningful thing is a very daunting task to say the least. There are many different things which we could discuss while we are discussing on this topic but for the sake of simplicity we would only discuss what matters the most. Another problem rises when parents try to protect the child too much. This has a very serious negative consequence. The child never sees what the real-life holds for them and they always paint a very rosy picture of life for them. This hurts them a lot and they have a very hard time handling it. If we take it into account then we would be surprised.

I hope you liked my short article. If you have any insights into the topic then feel free to share it down into the comments section below. Play the quiz as well and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family.

“The Little Boy and the Old Man

Said the little boy, “Sometimes I drop my spoon.”
Said the old man, “I do that too.”
The little boy whispered, “I wet my pants.”
I do that too,” laughed the little old man.
Said the little boy, “I often cry.”
The old man nodded, “So do I.”
But worst of all,” said the boy, “it seems
Grown-ups don’t pay attention to me.”
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
I know what you mean,” said the little old man.”
― Shel Silverstein

“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, ‘A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!”
― Robert Browning

“ And then I laugh, because it’s so ridiculous and so gorgeous and it’s all I an do to not melt into a fit of giggles. So what if I’m ninety-three? So what if I’m ancient and cranky and my body’s a wreck? If they’re willing to accept me and my guilty conscience, why the hell shouldn’t I run away with the circus?
It’s like Charlie told the cop. For this old man, this IS home.”

“Hope is sweet.
Hope is illumining.
Hope is fulfilling.
Hope can be everlasting.
Therefore, do not give up hope,
Even in the sunset of your life.”
― Sri Chinmoy, My Life’s Soul-Journey: Daily Meditations for Ever-Increasing Spiritual Fulfillment

“I just got a rather nasty shock. In looking for something or other I came across the fact that one of my cats is about to be nine years old, and that another of them will shortly thereafter be eight; I have been labouring under the delusion they were about five and six. And yesterday I happened to notice in the mirror that while I have long since grown used to my beard being very grey indeed, I was not prepared to discover that my eyebrows are becoming noticeably shaggy. I feel the tomb is just around the corner. And there are all these books I haven’t read yet, even if I am simultaneously reading at least twenty…”
