Don’t you find it strange that the people all the time think that their generation was the best and they always criticize the generations that will come after them. And how many times have we heard from young people saying about their parents that they are stupid or morons. This lack of respect between generations deepens more particularly between generations with large age differences between them. Or maybe when we can’t or we don’t want to face the new progresses in our life we delude ourselves with memories of our childhood. All the generations are expecting the other generation to do more to understand them without any explanations. For me the oldest generation should start first , they have more wisdom. No one can ask a younger generation to understand an older generation as they haven’t lived in it.
We are a strange human race because, sometimes we show more respect for a foreigner than for the people closest to us. We are more interested in what some strangers think about us than our parents feeling. Unfortunately this lack of respect is spreading into the world between countries, religion, race, and political parties.
And as usual it all starts in the family . The way they raised you is the way they will have you.
Wow, this is an excellent post, thank you for sharing with us your great thoughts and words.
Thank you Ted.
I think problems aren’t so much generational but that people automatically feel their way is the right way. If we all only gave advice when asked for it that would be a good start. Life and society will always change….
Thank you Cleopatra for your thoughts. You are right we are changing every day.
How realistic this is…respect from everyone BUT FAMILY. Interesting, but I am not like my family, and I am the outcast, and I am proud.
Be proud for who you are and your respect will come natural. Thank you for your thoughts Jackie.
Very insightful. Great post.
From the Garden of Edan mankind has degenerated. That is very evident today. The WORD tells us there will come a time when people “will believe the lie.” The term is entropy.
Realistic articles Adrian ,the young think about the previous generation which worked hard to pave the road as uneducated .While the new generation is 90% dependable on the old generation.Thank you so much for your likes on few of my posts ,much appreciated.Wishing you and your family a beautiful weekend.jalal
