57 Years Apart, Boy And Man Had The Realest And Enthralling Conversation About Life

Listen and learn from this interesting conversation between a boy and man born 57 years apart.

There are things we wish we knew when we were young just as we wish we can still do the things that we used to do back then, now that we are older. We can’t wait to grow up and when we are, we want to turn back time or perhaps slow it down–the reality of life exactly.

Now what can possibly transpire when a boy and a man are asked to sit together and talk about life? About the things we only wish to say or hear from our young and old selves? And what lessons can they impart to each other?

In a video uploaded by Facts, a 7-year-old boy and 64-year-old man had the most adorable and realest intergenerational conversation about life. Despite their 57-year age gap and many differences, they seem to treat each other as equals and both welcome each other’s views.

Their words are accurate, thought-provoking and no-nonsense.

Their conversation went from..

“What’s the worst part of being young?” the man asked.

Well, you get lots of homework, the boy answered.

Then it was his turn to ask the man,

“What’s the worst part of being old?”

“Not being able to do things that you could do when you were young.”

..to an amusing discussion about love, experiences and whatnot.

The boy was asked, “Will you fall in love? What will it be like?”

“I don’t know. We’ll have babies. It’ll be fun. Even though I’ll have to change his diaper. It’ll be fun,” the boy wittingly answered.

He then asked the man the same question and things got serious and emotional at some point. The man shared that he fell in love once but she passed away and this somehow made the boy upset. But he was quick to cheer him up,

“These things happen. That’s life. But I have very good memories. And often time, you live in your head with memories. You can remember all the good things, and that’s the important thing.”

And they even gave each other some worthy life advices to ponder.

“Act normal, don’t be silly, don’t bully lots of people,” the boy said.

“You don’t have to be rich to be happy. Do the things you like doing that make you feel good. Because when you’re happy yourself, everybody else is happy. Be yourself. Don’t let other people tell you what you should be, just be as you are,” the man replied.

It ended with the two of them shaking hands and sharing the sweetest hug.
