What are the advantages and disadvantages being youths
3 Answers | Add Yours
The advantages are that your body is young and still works right and that you have your whole life and all its possibilities ahead of you. The disadvantages are that you have more uncertainty. You don't know if you'll find a spouse. You don't know if you'll find a good career. You have possibilities, but you also have more worries.
I'm 57 years old now, and I've watched my body age from a strong young teen into a relatively healthy "senior citizen." I would love to be able to have the physical durability that I once had and the youthful zest for life that tends to cool a bit as one ages. However, nothing can substitute for life's experiences, and that is one area in which youth can never surpass an adult.
When you are young, you have your whole life ahead of you. As you get older, you start to lose some of your dreams. However, when you are older you have the advantage of memories, which youth does not.
