Being young is joyful and exciting to all of us. Considering yourself old is not a welcome sign while the world is dominated by culture of youth. It’s often believed that youth are too young to appreciate what they have got. When young, we feel we can rule the world and we also think why the older generation can’t get the point of view. Sure, every one of us is young at least once in a life time. Any young person would not be a good listener of elderly advice, because he/she can’t think that far to understand consequences. No doubt, only youth can be creative and innovative. Is this some sort of classic generation gap?
The youthful energies should be directed in proper channel, to not only achieve and accomplish something in life but also judge the situations and act up on them. Proper guidance and adequate education can help a young person choose to plan his or her future in the present itself. Perseverance is key to success, which doesn’t go into minds of youth easily. As we grow we think we are getting old, which I am sure none of us would agree upon. You always try to hide the child inside you, that real “you”. Shining adolescent skin may wrinkle, hair may gradually gray out. Though the gait may not suit you, you are matured to think wise and act upon. I was always confused between being young and growing old. Well it’s not in my control as time flies. Like everyone I have been through the “classic generation gap”. True, I accomplished quite a bit in my younger days, first lady in the family to get a college degree and employed ever etc. Of course, I am young again for having strength and courage to face the music of everyday challenges.
"The soul is born old but grows young. That is the comedy of life. And the body is born young and grows old. That is life's tragedy."-Oscar Wilde
