Why is that people get so narrow minded ? It baffles me that as people age most get more narrow minded. I’m painting with a broad brush here but it seems most people as they age they get less likely to accept change or even consider new ideas. I must be strange because as I age I find myself more open minded than at any time in my life. A closed mind is more often than not an empty mind. Just because “we’ve always done it that way” don’t make it right.
