If you could ask an older person for words of advice, or their perspective - what would you ask?
I guess the best thing to ask them pertains to experiences you've yet to have like what they did when they're children got in trouble or very sick or how they dealt with the death of a friend. I've been very fortunate not to endure that so far but know I must be prepared. I would ask how they dealt with it and overcame.
Do you feel your education prepared you for that moment? Which would you consider first: savings or education? Have children when you're younger or older? What are the difficulties of each option?
I would ask an older person how they have coped with tragedy in their lives. How did they feel when they lost their partner or children? I would find that a very difficult situation to deal with.
I asked this question of my dear friend, and neighbor who is 102.
Her philosophy is that no matter how something turns out, or why something happens, it's always for the best. "You don't always know it at the time, but it always comes out right in the end". She is such a positive person, and I think this has contributed to her longevity. I wrote a hub about an interview I had with her. She is quite a fascinating person.
