Just to say that at this moment in time I am 47 years of age and live in the UK…..
Age may have nothing to do with what I am about to say, but I just wanted to ask a few questions to see what responses would appear from people here
Even though you may have not closed yourself off intentionally, in any way, do you feel as though you have missed something along the way in the last
5 to 7 years?
From my own feelings I feel as though I am in some kind of slow motion when I am out and about, while others around me appear to be moving at a
quicker pace. Sometimes I stand and watch what is going on and everything becomes a big blurred image to me.
Does anybody else feel this?
I have also observed how people’s intelligence and understanding of the simplest of things in general seems to have gone down hill. At one time a
person could have a relatively normal conversation which could then turn into quite an interesting discussion. But these days it seems as though the
idea of conversing or discussing anything with anybody at length is no longer valid. It appears to be the norm now that people give as brief an
explanation as possible so that they can rush off and be quick at the next thing they have to do.
Anybody else feel this?
I like a pint of beer or two and love to sit outside the pub when it is warm enough to do so and have a chat with folks. Talking to people in their
middle thirties and upwards seems relatively okay, but people younger than that seems to be some what of a chore. Basic general knowledge seems to
have flown over their heads and out the window.
In the last couple of years I have known people not even be aware of the year that man supposedly landed on the moon. One girl I spoke to didn’t
even know that man was supposed to have landed on the moon. Another person thought that Hungary was in Asia. There are other examples, but I am trying
to keep this as brief as possible.
I was born into this world in 1965, so most of my childhood was in the 1970’s until I left school in 1981. Even though there was still turmoil
around the world, life used to go at a much gentler pace and there seemed to be time for socialising, conversation and general courtesy and respect
for each other, but all this seems to have gone astray.
So what happened?
Does anybody else feel this, or is it just me going madder by the day?
Have a nice day……….
