Age is the first and main determinant of a person’s wisdom, you see someone who is 30, and another who’s 20, you’ll automatically assume that the 30 year-old is wiser, and more knowledgeable, which is not always the case, sadly. You’d think as people grow, their minds grow along. Even though I know it exists, and now more than ever, it always astonish me to see people much older than me act like “tweens“. Why is that? It most certainly is not self-refusal to grow up while growing old, because to themselves, they are full grown women/men, mind, body, and soul. I for one love having intellectual conversations, ones that I come out from wiser and with more knowledge, which very much is why all of my friends are older than me by 3 years at the very least. I wish there was a faultless method of measuring one’s wisdom, because age is not one, obviously.
