Respect works both ways in order for it to be successful.
The younger has to respect the old and at the same time, the old has to also respect the young.
I personally believe that age is just a number.
You can be sixteen but have the maturity of someone twice your age.
On the flipside, you can be thirty-five but have the maturity of an adolescent.
One of the ways to recognise a matured individual is the ability to control our words.
Some people are able to process their thoughts before voicing them out while there are others who do not.
It's one thing to be straightforward but it's another to be judgemental.
Nonetheless, humans tend to make mistakes by blurting out their thoughts without thinking them through.
I am only human...so is she and so is he.
