Ageing is a universal process and truth. From humans and animals to trees and flowers, we all age. However it is our perspective that makes us look at a building, either as a ruin or a heritage site.
Human beings are driven by different purposes at various stages of their life. According to noted Psychologist Erik Erikson, the seniors in their golden years review their lives to find meaning. They assume the role of ‘guru’, who impart their years of wisdom to the next generations. Most of us can recall advises and some important truths of life handed down to us by the elders in our families.
Since elders find meaning in their lives by imparting their hard earned experiential knowledge, younger members of the family should make efforts to include them in the decision making process, and not just tell them the decisions. We need to change our perspective on ageing and the aged. They should be viewed as assets and not as liabilities.
A grandfather settled the age old debate on ‘a glass half full or half empty’ by pointing out to his grandson what was important – the glass being beautiful (Watch the video at https://www.facebook.com/Upworthy/videos/1444564368917750/).
