As a child I always used to think people as they aged, were more likely to have old mentalities, but years on I’m beginning to think it’s simply not true. There’s no difference between someone being 26 or being 88.
We all have the ability to learn, adapt and find new ways to move forward, or we can choose to do none of those. Our mentality and fixed ways of thinking will always play its part in our outlook and disposition. Society is often too quick to label the older generation.
Life is about outlook, the younger our outlook the more we will adapt. I’ve known people who have been stuck for most of their adult lives and continue to stay stuck, because of their fixed ways of thinking, absolutely nothing to do with their age. It’s having blinkers on that keeps us stuck and blinkers can be acquired at any age.
Our fixed ways of thinking have everything to do with our upbringing and that’s what often makes us old. I believe age is irrelevant.
