It is always welcomed but still at times people feel the generation gap. It is important to understand the reasons of generation gap and how to minimize it for enjoying the healthy relation. Humans are the product of their thoughts, feelings, behavior and beliefs. It is very dear to them and thinks that they are right and it is supposed to be accepted by all.
The older generation feels they have experience so they are right and the younger generation feels they have innovative ideas so they are right. Here comes the generation gap. In reality both are right and both are necessary experience and innovative ideas. The need is to understand not to impose on anybody. The elder generation has experience so unknowingly guides and instructs the younger generation most often. If they are guided what not to do rather than what to do then it is damaging. It should be understood at times the younger generation has to gather their own experiences to furnish themselves. Initially people use to listen to their elders and follow what they say without questioning. That was the culture then. Now this generation wants a reason and logic for each instruction and guidance. It should be appreciated as they will follow if they are convinced. It is important to know the correct reason so that it can be passed to the younger generation. It is a responsibility.
It is possible that at times the elders don’t know the reasons as they never asked and were never explained. The younger generation is blessed with the access to internet they can surf and find the reason rather than ignoring the suggestions or cultural practice. It will always provide the knowledge to make life better. When the generation gap is minimum you enjoy the life to the fullest. It starts will acceptance of each other focusing on what you are receiving and what you can give lovingly and unconditionally. If given a thought both complement each other to live a happy and beautiful life. Each generation has its own strength and weakness but at the same time has much more to offer.
