When we are young, we often notice disapproving looks, hear lectures, and feel neglected by adults. As we become adults, young people will write us off ahead of time. As a result, most of your life you will have problems with employment and communication with people of a different age.
What is Ageism? The word "ageism" (ageism) comes from the English "age", which means age. Ageism is discrimination against a person based on their years of life. There are two types of ageism: the negative attitude of the young towards older people, the older generation towards the younger. In simple words, "ageism" means a negative attitude towards people of your age.
Ageism is more widespread in modern society than sexism and racism. In your youth, adults will treat you negatively, and with age, you will be ignored by young people. You will often suffer from ageism without even realizing it.
In the modern world, we see all the ugliness of ageism, which leads to generational conflict. Young people are shouting to adults: "Old stump", "Okay, boomer", "Old man from whom sand is pouring", "It's time to go to the cemetery", "We have a road for the young." More adults answer: "Snotty", "Salaga", "Milk on the lips has not dried", "Eggs are not taught to hen", "Not yet matured."
Without wanting it, we show ageism from our side. We build boundaries by not wanting to communicate with people of a different age. How many people you know are much younger or older? How do you feel about people not your age? Are there any prejudices based on years?
The numbers in the passport are just numbers. We were all young and will definitely be adults. You don't need to be proud of your age. Mutual respect is important for young people and adults. Let go of your prejudices now so you don't end up being thrown away by a future society that will fight ageism.
Remember yourself as a child. You enjoyed communicating with your grandparents and other adults. As a child, he often liked to tinker with younger children. You used to be friends with adults and kids. As a child, you didn't have ageism. But what happened to you now?
Ageism is evil for everyone. An obsession with ageism negatively affects success and happiness in life. Be the person of the future who is above all this. Then luck and happiness will be on your side.
