This week’s episode is a truly uplifting, interesting and life affirming conversation about friendships and relationships across the generation gap.
For some reason it is not considered the ‘norm’ in our society to engage in relationships - whether romantic or otherwise - with those outside of our own generation and age range. But why? Why on earth does age matter? There are so, so many benefits to having friendships with people from different generations, and the truth is we can all learn so much from people who are both younger and older than us.
Bev (who admits that she is still 23 in her head) is a case in point given her very happy relationship with a man fourteen years her junior, and her life is all the better for it. He, in turn, has friendships with people in their 60s and 70s. And Marina - who recently attended an 89th birthday party which was filled with people ranging in age from 3 years to 93 years - has formed several fabulous friendships with people who happen to be significantly older than her. Both ladies acknowledge how wonderful these relationships are, and how much they add to both of their lives.
When it comes to making life As Good As It Gets, the idea that we can’t have friendships with people from different generations is both extraordinary and unhelpful. If we make a conscious decision to embrace intergenerational relationships, we may just find that our minds are broadened and our hearts opened.
