WITH AGE COMES WISDOM

science explain...

We all or maybe most of us believed that it is a custom for the decisions to be made by older adults.Maybe the thought made we youngesters fume.There are moments when most of us longed to take up the decision making job.Usually when it comes to gals,when they actually do want to elope from marraige and continue studies.The excuse(or rather we felt for the truth) our elders gave was that they were far more experienced than us.

But, the fact is even science has proved that older adults are better at evaluating the immediate and delayed benefits of each option they choose from. They are better at creating strategies in response to the environment.And the younger adults were better when only the immediate rewards needed to be.Sad but true.

But what I felt is its better to let them decide because people like me are better when with a guide than alone.lolzzz...
And am happy about that too except for the fact that if my elders were wise enough at 40 I would maybe take ten years extra...

Its truly said...'With Age Comes Wisdom'.

If you talk in a general sense, this is true....but not necessarily always....the elderly are more experienced,mature etc..no doubt in that...but at times, their thoughts can be narrow, limited....
youngsters are more prone to errors in judgement due to their lack of experience....
but it doesn't mean that their ideas,decisions,thoughts etc are always erroneous.

Well, everyone's tongue is tied....people never do what they think is right because of the fear of what the society will say....

As true as that is, there are often times when young wisdom is scorned.
