I am very old fashioned. I never knew I was until I found myself living among 82 other Seniors. We are each different, but most of us around the same age. I think I am one of the younger ones.
I seem to stick to those old-fashioned morals and rules that were grounded into my soul from my parents and grandma. Oh, I swayed like a swing for a long time.
When I was middle-aged, I tried to be more open. Next came a personal friend, who opened my eyes to alternative life styles. I tried real hard to see it through their eyes; but couldn’t complete that task 100%
Today, I try to not judge. I try to see things from younger people’s views. I work on picking out the truth from our politicians and ministers. I listen to the views here during socializing.
I think what amazes me the most is the attitudes of people though. It isn’t their beliefs, or rights and wrongs from their eyes to mine. It is the attitude that forces me to cover my face with my mask.
People want you to believe that their way is the only way, the only truth. There seems to be no more middle ground. I have seen petty things turn into monkey business.
I would rather see a disagreement be spoken about, maybe chewed on a little but in the end there is still a beautiful friendship still remaining.
At my age, I have not given into today’s thinking that things that are wrong are wrong. I don’t want to change some of my views because I take my reasoning from the Bible. From my experience and aging, I realize I am old-fashioned, and I have learned to keep my mouth shut. I don’t like arguments, I don’t like risking friendships, so it isn’t worth it in my eyes.
