A Mini Series: 6. Being Young Today
Young people have a strong energy of doing. Older people have the wisdom of previous experience, but sometimes they don’t have the energy for action, doing, or starting over. The two mixing together can create a healthy relationship
Some of the challenge of this has to do with respect and patience that comes from both generations. In my own experience in politics I witnessed this. The older people look at us thinking that we were immature. They could not see sometimes that things change and it can be hard for them to move with the changes that are happening. For us it was hard sometimes to understand how important it was what would be shared with us. Especially as youth we often think we already know everything. I am curious to know how we can have the conversation that allows for the best potential of both ages?
