A seven-year-old boy and a 64-year-old man had an adorable conversation about life.
Reflecting on what they have learned over the years and offering words of advice to one another, the pair were able to learn a lot from each other – despite being born some 57 years apart.
At the beginning of the video, the man asks the boy: “What’s the worst thing about being young?”
“Well, you get lots of homework,” he laughs.
Then, the boy asks the man what the worst thing about growing old, to which he replies: “Not being able to do things that you could do when you were young.”
The pair then discuss falling in love. The boy says he loves his family and is looking forward to having children, while the man explains that he has been in love, but that his partner had passed away.
When the boy gets emotional and says he is going to cry, the man is quick to reassure him: “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.”
At the end of the video, the pair are asked to give words of advice to one another.
The boy says: “Act normal, don’t be silly, don’t bully lots of people.”
The man replies: “Be yourself, don’t tell other people tell you what you should be, just be as you are.”
