Hello everyone and welcome to another wonderful collaboration with my very good friend Ilona over at https://easydiet.blog and I am sure you are familiar with her great blog already.
Today we often don’t see respect for older people. Many younger people will push their way past older people to get a better spot in line at a checkout, or just to get through a door. I have seen younger people making fun of older people, being rude to them right to their face, laughing at them.
One young woman actually told an older woman, “why don’t you just die so people don’t have to look after you.” So many people think that older people are just useless and no good for society. They don’t consider that these older people used to be young. And young people will soon be old. Why not say a kind word, give a nice smile, say hello. Something so simple can really make their day.
Those days people dont give enough respect to older people. Probably a problem of education again but we don’t see enough young man or girl helping older generation to cross the road when they have difficulties, carry their bags or other simple things.
When it happen it feel exeptionnal, something so wonderfull and rare, just by seeing their reaction. Its supose to be normal. One day it will be us who will be in the need. Who will be a bit week someday, and we will be glad to be surronded by good soul to help us at any corner.
So think about it and do the right thing, teach your kids or your future kids to act that way. To be good and gentle. Older generation deserve all our respect, we don t know their life, their past, what they ve been trought. So even if some seems to be grumpy and have bad character, in the benefit of the doubt. Be good, one day it can be you❤️
Ilona and Steve.
