“My Feelings on Ageism”

“My Feelings on Ageism”

First let’s look at what ageism really is shall we?  Ageism: prejudice or discrimination on the basis of a person’s age.  Now how I feel about it?  Truth is I have mixed feelings about it.  I dislike it because some things are age based.  Some legally, and others just based on perception.  Yes I know, perception is reality.  I get that.  However, some of those age related discrimination is wrong and unnecessary.  At the same time I like it because it prevents us from doing some crazy things.  It also helps us reminder that we can’t do ALL the things that we could do when we were 21.  Of course, still, each person have their own limits and those limits should be respected.  We shouldn’t let a persons age make them feel useless.  Just because a person is older or younger doesn’t make them useless.
