The Seven Stages of Life
In life there's a cycle that we called, people born and people die, we are not immortals that's why we have limited time on this world that we can spend in those important matters. We have different roles in society as time goes by, If your familiar with the poem made by William Shakespeare titled the Seven ages of Man then you'll realize that we are living in cycle of life.
It was divided into Seven parts which are infant, schoolboy, lover, soldier, justice, old age and last is extreme old age but I include the death in the last part since I believe that death is the final destination of us humans and we can't avoid it.
For me death is something that we need to accept since we humans have limited life, that's the main reason why we should spend that time in appropriate way so that once we are at verge of death due to old age, we can say that we became happy throughout our journey. Without further a do, I'll go explain those Seven stages of life.
There's nothing more exciting to see a cute little infant that born in this world. This is the stage of life which we called the beginning, in this stage an infant is growing and learning basic things like speaking, walking, and crying out loud to tell that they need to poop or they feel hungry.
This is the stage where parents need to give the necessity and needs of the child so that they will grow healthy and no illness. This is also a stage of life which we don't care about this world, we are just happy crawling and touching things.
School is one of the stages of life we start attending to school, Sometimes we don't want to cause we are afraid specially on the first day but our mother will gonna pinch our ears once we didn't attend the school. This is the learning stage of life, we both teach inside our home and school about academics and proper behavior that a student must have.
In this stage we are mold inside the school. The teachers have roles to pass the knowledge to us so that we can learn something that we can use in the future. In this stage we start to understand things, we start realizing the importance of what we do and in school they teach basic knowledge about life.
Well school is not about just learning but fun, students usually engage on recreational activities prepared by the school in order for students to learn something. In this stage we sometimes explore what's new to the point that we made mistakes and there's nothing bad on it since our curiosity really killing to the point that we are trying to explore things in life. It's all part of our journey to mold ourselves.
This is the stage of life which a man is feeling affection towards opposite or on the same gender, in short its what they called love. This is the stage where a man having crush to a girl or vice versa and they gonna try to unleash their feeling and confessing to the person they love.
Once both like each other, they will enter into new stage which is relationship, in this stage they gonna experience ups and downs, for youngsters they called it as puppy love or not so serious relationship. A man can feel happiness together with the person he loves but can also feel broken and sadness.
If the relationship doesn't work that ends up in breaking apart. It's still a part of a man's journey. It's normal for us to explore things specially in love. Soemtimes we learn but sometimes we didn't to the point that we didn't learn anything from our past mistakes.
This is the stage where a man is battling in life, facing those problems and struggles that making them broke. However they are the soldiers that keep standing no matter how many times they fall. They are still fighting even if there's a little possibility that they can win.
It's a matter of courage and braveness to face those problems and once surpass those struggles, they can say that they did it. They didn't lose hope cause they believe that they can do it. This stage is usually applied to those succesful people that crawl into shattered glass in order to climb at the top of the hill.
They are the people who believe in their self that they can do it even though the people around them doesn't support and mocking them. This is the most challenging part of life cause we might experience ups and downs, this is the stage where there's already a responsibility we need to fulfill.
This is the stage of life which refers to those middle 50s or 60s usually they already matured enough to understand everything. They are the one who knows everything for the betterment of themselves and people around them.
They are able to make wise decisions and judge the situation fairly without any bias. This is only applied to those people who truly reached this stage cause somehow there are people who already in this stage but acting like immature.
They are the one who will make decision but they are only one sided, they believe in only one statement and doesn't look at other circumstances. Those people in this stage are the one who gonnabe ask if we dont understand a certain question, sually they gonna give advise base on their opinions, sometimes it's helpful but soemtimes it doesn't.
This is the sixth stage before the final stage, it's the part of life which we are already old that our bones is not that strong to engage on any activities that we want. Usually we gonna stay home and became lonely since we are looking for the care of the children that we have like the care that we did to them when they are child.
It's common scenario which elders are abandoned by their own children and doesn't want to own responsibility to take care of them. It's really sad but it's the reality, some elders are on Elders house take care by the volunteers since they are already abandoned by their family.
In the future if I have children then I don't want to urge them to take care of me cause I believe that even if I'm old, I am strong enough to live for the rest of my life, however if they gonna give help then I won't refuse their offer since I also need some assistance specially when it comes to financial.
For me this is the final stage of life that we should expect to happen, like I said earlier that humans life is just temporary and we will vanish in this world no matter how strong we are. Sometimes old age people already accepted their faith that's why they are getting ready for it.
Some people are investing on their funeral plan cause they believe that life is unpredictable and they need to prepare so that once they perish in this world, their family don't need to worry on funeral cause it was already paid.
This is the most saddest specially to the family that will left on this world, it takes time for them to move on since they really love and missed the person that they love the most. Death is something that we can't escape, sometimes there are people died in old age but some are unfortunate died early without experiencing the other stages of life.
There are seven stages of life that we need to experience, those stages that we learn something and mold us to become who we are right now. Currently, I'm on stage of schoolboy and lover, I'm into stage of soldier but I need to graduate first then after that the true battle of being a soldier will started and I need to face the reality of this life.
It's a stages of life that we need to pass and we don't need to feel sad if we grow old since we are sure to ourselves that we made our life joyful and full of happiness, atleast once we perish in this world, we don't have any regrets.
