What Have You Learned From Older People?

Our Elders can pass much wisdom on to younger people. Let us know what some of that wisdom was. Of course some old people are also a little out there and share interesting (non wisdom) stories so let's here those too.

In case you don't know who I am here is my intro post from way back:

@robhimmself1 ...being workaholic is not a bad thing.. if we enjoy it.

Sebaiknya, semakin bertambah umur kita, semakin kita dekat dengan orangtua kita.

I've spent a lot of time with elderly both via family and through some of my previous employers.

The thing that I have learned over the years from the elderly people that I spent time with is that there really is only one thing that is important in life - the time we spend with our family and loved ones. These elderly people craved the company of the people they love in their final years. It's what kept them going and the smiles I saw on their faces when loved ones visited was one of the most warming things I have ever seen.

I got caught up chasing the almighty dollar for many years and only truly understood how important family and loved ones are when I saw 5 family members and close friends die over a period of 2 years.

Now I am all too aware of how important it is to be with family and friends as much as possible. Life is too short to go chasing something as silly as a few nice items or that next big pay check. Possessions are never as important as the people you love.

For example, at one point (while telling her story), she would be reciting poetry, then she would segue into prose, and in between all of that was the singing she would infuse in her narrations.

Ibu tahu, tidak bisa disamakan antara ditinggal pergi orangtua untuk selamanya, dengan menghadapi perpisahan orangtua. tapi, bagi seorang anak, sama-sama menyakitkan.

I have come to ask your parents for help in the eradication of summer flu in Humbleton. The garbage cans are full of Kleenex wipes. The doctors have run out of cough drops. I do not know what to do

Kebaikan seorang ayah lebih tinggi daripada gunung dan kebaikan seorang ibu lebih dalam dari pada laut.

I have learnt things in form of Parables "The only music a tortoise dance to, is that of a boiling water" which mean a Child should always take precaution in handling or dealing with issues. If that person goes otherwise, it might be too late to correct such mistakes.

"What an old man sees while sitting, a young man cannot see it, if he climbs a tall iroko tree" meaning people should always listen to those with experience when they are being given advice, from through experience one can shape his/her life in the right direction learning from other people's mistake.

They say wisdom is ubiquitous but people still go searching for it. The reply here is so touching, where do you get these thoughts and ideas from?awesome.jpg

Thank you. Got it from the men who have toiled the soil and travel the earth decades before I was born.

·

@yungcheif , speaking the truth... what an experience man can see , a young cannot!!!
With experience a wise man become more humble. Like a tree 🌳 with fruits 🍎, always bow down!!!
Cheers man for gracious word.

Makin' random comments and history was a big thing with the elderly I met.

I've learned that there is always something good to get from bad experiences.

What enjoy every day as if it were the last, to live as best as possible because nothing will take us to the grave.

·

@bearmaster well said!!!
Iive the life as it’s your last day..
Then only when we get old...give the same advice.
Cheers man!!!

I've learned a lot from elders but the most important thing that I learned is never be too lazy to try new things, cause we'll never know what life throws at us which may hinder us from trying out new things :)

@bunnypuncher
My teachers 👨‍🏫 in schools use to say... you are not good in study.... But my grand to grandma 👵 said... son you will study more...
Guess what..grandma was more wight... Doing PhD in chemistry now....✌️✌️✌️

knowledge, respect, be the example, illusion for what you do

Always give everything for everything

Congratulations to the winners. I learned that "Actions speak louder than words"

LEARNING 1. Illusion for what you do.
LEARNING 2. Respect.
LEARNING 3. Listen to the one in front of you.
LEARNING 4. Be an example
LEARNING 5. Knowledge.

A dollar is the easiest thing to make!

My grandfather taught me to live a healthy life, at the age of 95 he wakes up early in the morning walks for half an hour and makes his own breakfast with healthy fruits and organic food. This shows that if you're willing the lifestyle adopted can take you a long way.

Last year, I met a diplomat who was about to retire from his ambassadorial position at his country’s embassy. While discussing our future goals, he told me that when he goes back to his country he wants to pursue a doctorate study. This man had as much success as he could possibly imagine in his life, but instead of lying back and calling it a day, he was looking forward to new ways to advance himself. Then I know that I need to find my purpose in my life...

be responsible all the time! :)

We don't grow when things are easy. We grow when we face challenges.

I have learned not to take everything as a game, to mature with time, to be humble and respectful thanks to the elderly people of my family especially

Older people often say to focus and finished my study because only Education is what they could give me and it is the best weapon in attaining my goals in life. And knowledge is power!

Its a weird question because, what have we not learned from older people? Most of our knowledge comes from those that came before us.

In my country there is a slogan that says "If you want to get old take advice", I have a lot to learn from older people that they have had life experience, in my case I learned to have nothing to ruin my happiness since that depends only on me.

What I've learned from the Elders is that they thought me 1 thing. That is to follow what you're feeling inside. The thing that keeps telling you to do it, to grab the opportunity while you can do it, because as the time flies by... You may not be able to do it anymore.

Same as love, after break-ups. Maybe it's just a misunderstanding that's why you both decided to end-up your relationship. But in reality, both of you are the ones whos hurting each other. Then you'll miss her, maybe she misses you too. If you still have feelings for her. Why not tell it to her now? Don't wait for the moment that you'll end up regretting what you've did. You might end up watching her, with another man instead.

I learned a lot of things from their experience , culture , tradition , history , family buisness.

He who listens to advice from older people is doing better in his life.

How to complain about everything

I've received lots of professional insights and ideas for inquiry from my elders.

A wise older man once told me "Growing old is boring son, so don't"

Must save enough money to take care of myself without depending from my sons

·

I learned to never give up, no matter what happens. When you have a goal and keep trying, someday you might reach it. Patience and hard work can pay off.

I learned a lot about how to take care of my children.

Life has a lot of challenges

My father always say in the Igbo native tongue-"Onye Bara onwe ya uru,orie onwe ya uru"
It means if you live an upright life,just and acceptable before all,you will definitely reap the fruits of your labor.
I've held unto those words ever since

That people were more emphatic during their days.

The most important thing I learned from them was the true Virtue of being Patient. Success can't be achieved in an instant, you need to work hard for it. If you failed don't give up yet because the right time will come for you to taste the Sweetest Fruit of Success!

I've learn from people older than me that you have to walk on other people's shoes to understand why they make a decision that you don't share with them.

A loot of things from older people, but what does older means in this context? cause it could be from 1 day older up to decades older...


From eldery people i've learnt that you should give a shit about what people thinks of you.

How old is old?

"Say YES more... Because one day when you are old, you will wish you did more not less!"

i upvote this post, plz same for me

To be thankful for each and every day.

I can learn good decision making process from older people.

From them you learn what you want to know. In them there is wisdom and experience ready to be shared with each one of us, you just need to know how to listen to them and want to learn from them.

When people reach my age, they start to take themselves and the world around them and their lives a little too serious.

My father and other people who were twice to thrice my age showed me how that is actually quite pointless. They just loved to live, lived to laugh and had a great time overall to the best of their ability.

Why so serious?

I learned from older people respec, love & dignity of work.

el que quiere besar busca la boca jajajajaja. Si quieres algo lo buscas, en pocas palabras, siempre me decían esto aunque no es el mejor ejemplo para mi.

Drunk people are stupid lol

Focusing on my hea> ling process from an infection I do not know how I got it

I have many things learned from older people,Such as if you are at the peak of your emotions never make a big decision that can change your life,To avoid regret at the end.

Another is that respect your parents, they are the most important person in your life.Follow what they says and love them until the end of time.
We should have respect each other...we should obey someone ..Respect all people despite of their status in life and consider and treat them as your brothers and sisters.
Respect be gets respect.
Share your blessings with others.

Respect be gets respect.
Share your blessings with others.

Extend help to all who needs help.
And lastly,
Bear the spirit of gratitude.Be thankful always in everything that you receive it may small or big, grateful person is a happy person.

I have learnt from their teachings that their own mistakes should bemy own examples, so that where they got it wrong I thrive in that aspect

I have learnt proper time management from my grand father. He told me to give proper time to every task yoy want to do. Set a time limit and finish within set limit.

Have lots of children and take care of your teeth

My mother-in-law told me over 30 years ago that inside she always feels 18 years old. I am now the age she was then and I wish she was still here so I could tell her she was right!

I have learnt how to success in life and i also learnt respect and lot of things from them.

Learnt responsibility.
Much of quality values.

Value your time

our seniors are a school of life full of lived experiences that share their experiences with love and wisdom

Always be grateful

The older people than this generation are much decent and honest i think. So the main thing i learned from them behavior and honesty.

What I have learned from my elders, or wisdom that they taught me is that on everyday struggle that we met in life, we should not disregard them as an obstacle in life. They are in fact, blessings in disguise to shape up our own image, our own personality to nurture us for a brighter future.

Another thing I learned from my elders is that, we should be thankful everyday to God for every new day He has given us for another life to live. We should live life to the fullest and consider each day as if it's our last. We should not waste our lives for hate, grudge, and bitterness to others, coz our life is too short to waste on those such negativities.

My elders taught me also that each person we have met in life has certain purpose why we met them. They can be instruments for our personality development, they can be helpful along the way, or they can be a part of something we have for our own awakening.

But most of all my elders taught me that we should respect them too, as well as to our parents. We should love them with all of our hearts, coz we only get one-time parents. Respect them, so that once our time to become as parents too, our children will pay respect for us too. It's human nature that the good begets goodness and the bad begets worse.

These were all the wisdom that my elders have taught me as one of their legacies that made me of what I am now. So I do hope your elders taught you the way mine do. Or if you have any, share to us yours too.

That's all for elders' gift of wisdom for me. What's yours? Tell us your story. :)

That experience doesn't mean knowledge.

Extend help to all who needs help..Respect all people despite of their status in life and consider and treat them as your brothers and sisters.
Respect be gets respect.
Share your blessings with others.

I learnt the value of time from my grandma and the most important thing is not to postpone any work. I too personally experienced the risks of postponing works.
I believe in old people as they have a lot of experience in their lives.

Kata Kata untuk Orang Tua Tersayang Terbaik

Words for the Best Parents Best

Everyone should enjoy their lives at its best. Once we get old, we cant do anything what we want.

Kita harus memberikan yang terbaik kepada ibu dan ayah. bahagiakan beliau selagi mereka masih hidup. Walaupun saat ini belum bisa membahagiakan kedua orang tua. Kita cukup membuat mereka tersenyum dengan mengucapkan kata yang indah untuk mereka beruda. Jangan sampai kita justru menyesal karena tidak bisa membuat mereka bahagia.

I learnt the value of people which is lost nowadays

We have to give the best to mom and dad. happy him while they are still alive. Although currently can not be happy parents. We just make them smile by saying a beautiful word for them to ride. Do not let us regret it because it can not make them happy.
