Do you think that the whole ageing process is still considered a taboo subject?

Do you think that as we age we become wiser or dumber?

Q.1

As you have aged have you noticed that you have become more or less tolerant of society?

I think as l have gotten older it isn’t so much a case of having become more or less tolerant – but becoming more cynical of everything in general. Has society changed ‘that’ much since l was a teenager?

Yes of course very much so – there is so much difference to when l was say 17 in life to how a 17 year old views life now – l think that my way of life although filled with perils anyway, was no way as perilous as life is today … l am glad l do not have to experience growing up in today’s world as l believe the world today to be spiteful.

Q.2

As you have aged have you become more so or less so – happier?

I have known moments of both as l have aged over the years … but whilst l would love to answer with l am happily content now [pandemic aside], l cannot sadly – my life seemingly is filled with more uncertainty today than perhaps it should be. In one breath l am so much more happier and yet at the same time, l feel like l am struggling to breathe.

Q.3

Do you think we live in a time of ageism?

Yes l do, l think and have witnessed first hand only last year how society feels about the ageing population and whilst this year l am now on the other side of mid fifty – l feel that the ageing population is considered a waste of space by the youth of today. When l was growing up l respected my elders not because l had to – but l wanted to and today l feel that people no longer have that kind of respect for not just the elders but anyone above the age of 48-50  – we are all considered old at that point and past our prime and usefulness.

Do you think that the whole ageing process is still considered a taboo subject?

I am often astonished at just how many taboos society really does have in consideration to what society will openly discuss on social media and yet they shudder at the prospect of death, mental health and ageing topics … why? Who knows but yes ‘ageing is very much a taboo topic in some quarters’.

Do you think that as we age we become wiser or dumber?

Well, l personally think l have become wiser in many areas and yet in others l feel as dumb as a box of wooden frogs! Personally l think we become more aware of the life we live, our environment and our governments and to a degree our society and yet .. with the way the digital progressions advance and at the speed  they do – l cannot help but feel at times quite far behind the whole advancement thing!

I believe we do become wiser personally but the world is getting dumber and we become confused by that …. whilst the younger generation simply accept certain things which are illogical to us and mock other things which are serious to our generations. The youth of today seemingly are flippant about so much and l honestly don’t recall being this nonchalant about life when younger.

So yes we personally become wiser, but in the eyes of social society – we are dumber!

Anyway, that’s me – now how about you? What would you answer to today’s Topical Tropical Trinity questions if asked? Oh hang on … l am asking. Let me know below in the comments section or should you wish to – by all means create your own post – drop me a link in the comments section so l can read it and not ‘not’ see it. 

Thanks Rory

  1. Q.1
    As you have aged have you noticed that you have become more or less tolerant as a person?

    Yes.😂 I don’t get as worked up over minor things, but at the same time my tolerance for B.S. and idjits is lower, so I don’t associate with people in those categories if I can help it.

    Q.2
    As you have aged have you become more so or less so – happier?

    I’m definitely happier now. I am peace within myself. Everything else is just journey and adventure.

    Q.3
    Do you think we live in a time of ageism?

    Yes, but we have for a long, long time. Elders haven’t been respected and honored in Western Culture for decades. If you’re not attractive, slim and young then you’re a burden and should hide yourself away. Look at advertising.

    Do you think that the whole ageing process is still considered a taboo subject?

    Absolutly! Aging leads to death, death is NEVER to be discussed. Aging must be avoided with much plastic surgery and cosmetics🙄 We must be young and beautiful to have value. Its ridiculous!

    Do you think that as we age we become wiser or dumber?

    Depends on the person. I’d like to think I’m wiser, that I’ve learned from my experiences. But since I can’t remember things that happened 5 minutes ago maybe I’m dumber🤷🏼‍♀️
