How Ageism May Be Limiting Your Learning

Do not lesson your life by limiting who you learn from.

Do not base a person’s competency on their age.

The kindest person I know is over a decade younger than me and I learn from them all the time.

Some of my best friends are twenty years older than me and our friendships could not be more parallel, perfect and pleasing for all parties.

I have had teachers who were younger than me and I learned from them, just as well as the teachers who were older than me.

I have learned from children because I listen to what they say and do.

I learn from seniors because I respect their wealth of experiences and give them the room to speak.

I try to listen to everyone and instead of competing for airtime to speak my thoughts, I simply try to absorb, learn and grow from them.

Quit making assumptions about others based on their age.

A twenty year old may be able to teach you a thing or two about resiliency. A sixty year old may be able to relate to your heartbreak more than you ever imagined.

Age is nothing, but people make it everything.

I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others: amanlitt.ca
