At this moment, I am taking a break from the Zero to Hero Challenge. For the meantime, I am going to post about today’s aily prompt. It’s been a while since I last posted using the prompt. So, here it goes. The prompt was:
First of all, I would say that we can learn from each other. No matter what the age is, every one of us can learn from every person that we encounter.
I’d go first on what is the thing that I least understand from the generation younger than me. I think that would be early relationships. Call me old fashioned or bitter but I still think that having relationship requires maturity. One of the most common stories we hear about is teenage pregnancy. I’ve encountered girls who got pregnant at such an early age. There’s nothing wrong with being pregnant but come on! It’s very dangerous if the girl will have to undergo the pregnancy. There are a lot of risks not only for her but also for the baby she will be carrying. Also, what about her future? There are still lots of things that she has to accomplish to build her character before giving birth and raising a child. I think that proper guidance should be given to teens nowadays. Freedom is good but it shouldn’t be abused.
On the other hand, I adore how the teens nowadays are so brave and outspoken. Before, there are no social media but now everyone can voice out their thoughts and ideas to the world. In my opinion, it’s really good that some teens can be involved in sharing their opinions about certain important issues.
As for the older genration, the thing I least understand about them is when they get angry when someone younger than them tries to explain himself/herself. In our country, it is a must to give older people with so much respect. However, there are times that this causes the older people to block out what the younger ones have to say. For an instance, when my parents get angry with me, they will scold me and ask me what happened. However, when I speak for myself and explain, they will get mad at me and accuse me of being rude. It can be really unfair sometimes. Lol.
Anyway, the thing that I learn the most from the older generation is patience. We all live in a world where everything is instant. We don’t have to work for things as much as they had during their time. I think being with them and hearing stories from them will make us realize how lucky we had that we have so much convenience in our lives due to technology.
