The best age to be
Generally, children wish they were grown up and old people wish they were young again. Each age has its own pleasures and pains. To my mind, the happiest person is the one who knows how to enjoy fully what his age has brought to him.
Childhood is the happiest time in one’s life. If the children are brought up by good families they will be well-bred, loved, and taken care of carefully. They will become useful citizens to society.
But childhood has its pains too. They are not allowed to do whatever they wish. If they do something wrong they will be punished. Therefore they are not quite happy.
When they grow up, they completely get rid of strict regulations and rules from their parents and schools but they have to work for their food, their clothes, and their lodging. Now they must have a responsibility towards their families and society.
Old age has been always considered the worst age to be, but it is not necessary for the old to be unhappy.
After many years of hard work, when reaching old age, the old man accumulated lots of experiences that will be valuable treasures for future generations. They are now entitled to pride in what they have bequeathed to their children.
They can have the joy of seeing their children and grandchildren making progress in life or growing up around them. Moreover, if in their past lives they had great contributions to society, to their fatherland they would be remembered forever and ever by the generations to come.
