We can learn a lot from young people
It is frequently said we should respect senior people and learn a lot from them. However I definitely believe there are so many things we can learn from someone younger as well. I feel this way for 2 main reasons, which will be explained in the following essay.
The first reason is that we have fresh creative mind when we are in our youth, which we tend to loose as we age. With the fresh mind, we can see things without any stereotype or prejudice. For instance, new culture such as fashion or music, usually come out from young generations. While older people often regard it as “strange” or “unacceptable”, younger ones can find it as “new” or “cool”. That’s why new culture usually spread among young people first. Especially when we are required to do something innovative, we can watch young people and can learn from them.
Secondly, the speed of growth depends on each person. We sometimes even get childish as we age. To put it in another way, it’s possible that younger people can be more matured than older people. Young sports players, like Mao Asada, Yuzuru Hanyu, and Syohei Otani are the great living proof. They are still in their twenties and already surprisingly matured. They have strong will power and can be patient and thoughtful. Their sincerity always makes me feel that I need to be a humble and hard-working person. It means they can be a great teacher for me.
In conclusion, I strongly believe that we can learn a lot from younger people. This is because we often forget the good features younger people have and there are lots of mentally matured people in their youth.
