Better to be old than cold

Grow old with me ,the best is yet to be ” Robert Browning

ARE YOU A DESIGNATED SENIOR CITIZEN?

Congratulations!

You are honored. We are all happy. Time to smile,cheer up & celebrate!

But wait a minute.

How are you experiencing the new Avatar?

Are you happy or sad?

Can you narrate your feelings?

Have you ever faced discrimination? Are you sure?

Come on my friend. Don’t feel shy.

I know that you have realized something important.

And the worst part of being honored as a senior citizen is that nobody cares who you are anymore!

Don’t get depressed.It’s common and it happens and it’s nothing to do with the gender,colour,race,creed,religion or nation.

Rare exceptions are possible and you can be the most loved figure in the family,society and in your town with everybody adoring you.Your advises and suggestions are very much respected.

Are you not one of those lucky senior citizens?

Do you regret becoming old because your words are not given any importance and thus….

SHOULD YOU BE CONCERNED AS A SENIOR CITIZEN?

“Don’t resent growing old. Many are denied the privilege”. Irish Proverb

It’s a common experience that senior citizens are in the majority of the cases looked down at.

CARE OF ELDERS VS CHILDREN

Always this particular doubt lingers in my mind as to why don’t we care for older people as much as children?

Are we not aware that a society is measured by how it cares for elderly people?

Are we not responsible for elders undergoing ‘inferiority complex’ because of our behaviors towards them?

IS GROWING OLD A COUNT DOWN OR COUNT UP?

“The best thing about growing older is that one is not yet dead !”

11 ADVANTAGES OF AGING

✔Old people don’t care what others think about them and can take independent decisions.

✔Lack of stress since bringing up the family is a finished chapter.No worry.

✔Spending time with Grandchildren.

✔Ability to spend more time with loved ones.

✔Old people rarely make foolish mistakes.

✔Old people are better connected and this is helpful in times of distress.

✔Senior citizen benefits, priorities at the airport, etc.

✔You have nothing to lose.

IS THERE ANY ADDED VALUE TO THE OLD PEOPLE’S ADVICE?

Most of the younger generation make fun of old people since senior citizens are not in sync with modern developments and handling of the latest gadgets etc.

These young kids always feel their senior citizens are experts in spreading the boredom with their outdated stories!

  1. I know with my grandparents they were still being taken care of by family as they got/get older. Even the grandparents who really didn’t deserve it. So I can’t understand how people just ignore their elderly? If parents have been abusive and continue to be so, sure, that I can understand. Some elderly though, I’ve seen, are as sweet as pie.

    1. Thank you my friend for your thoughts. Exceptions are always there as I mentioned in the post.
      True colours… are shown by the kith especially these hard times in many families.
      Covid making aged souls go into depression.
      Many places oldies are treated as a burden and as an unnecessary expense.
