Today as I started to talk one of my classmates over phone after a long time, he indicated me during talk that he has become old now to take up new ideas and concepts. Being of my age group around 45, I was surprised a little to listen such a retiring voice from him! He began to laugh at my surprise. I also laughed in response to him and said him that we shall sit, talk together openly in our free time next week. Then I will say whether you are really old or just thought to have gone old. Friends, just say how to remove the old person's attitude from him? This will help me a lot.

how can we just snap a persons attitude from him when infact, it stayed in his system since the day he breathe.. all i can say is that to do that, first it must come from his own need to change.. and the rest is for the God to handle..

i always believe that noone needs to grow old... but we all just need to grow up. age is age. it's there. it's always an addition thing and we have to live with it. if we focus much of our time thinking about our age increasing, one day, we'll feel that life is already boring and that we just wanna have a life where the wind blows us to. your friend is already in such a line... where he finds life is already boring. he no longer wants to get new ideas and concepts. but everyday is something new whether we want it or not.. whether we see those changes or we just ignore them. he's not old... he's just bored. if he only opens up his eyes into the reality of how beautiful life is, he'll appreciate again new things in his life.. including the fact that he'll one day sit down with you and talk together OPENLY, right? that's one good change in one day of his life. he just did not realize it. hehe. but he'll surely have fun talking to you. you'll see. he'll realize he's not that old at all.
