Being in my late 20’s, I can’t help it not to feel old for my age even if technically I’m really not yet THAT old. Maybe because of the fast turn-over of people in the workplace nowadays, I still remember the days when I was the youngest kid at work but now it’s the opposite where I now work with fresh graduates. I sometimes feel the generation gap during conversations in the pantry where there are times that I cannot relate to what young people nowadays are saying and vice versa.
Honestly, I don’t need to feel bad about it since I actually feel young when I’m with these people, because I admire their energy and sense of responsibility, and ideas that are fresh and can help the workplace feel much better. I’m enthusiastic enough to share to them the beautiful things in life, inside and outside the workplace, and at the same time I learn a lot from them too.
~I’m glad to be growing old but feeling young~
