Both beginnings and endings happen within our selves all the time. The balance between welcoming the new and learning from the old is more often than not very difficult to maintain. Much of the time we don’t maintain that balance and when we don’t we are losing or missing out on a lot life has to offer. We become so busy with making a living or gathering achievements or serving the greater good that we leave the care of our young to others and refuse we have time to listen to the older. Surviving in a totally separate and isolated generation is not healthy or satisfying to us and it is surely not for the younger or older generations who are unable to connect with us. Loss of connection with other generations ultimately leads to an inability to connect with our own and, eventually, with ourselves. When we lose our ability to connect with others and with ourselves we are living in an unreal world, our decision-making becomes compromised, and we become unhappy and feel worthless and isolated. The remedy is so easy and painless and obvious that we can miss the opportunity to connect and continue to wallow in woe. The remedy is to speak with others of different generations and listen, don’t merely nod and continue with your own thoughts; listen and learn what they have to offer. You can also reply and institute an real conversation. Wouldn’t you rather create or sustain contact with all generations than stagnate alone with only your own?
