View Transcript
- What do you wish the younger generation understood about your generation's spiritual beliefs? - More people abided by a structured religious experience, I think, that's my perception. More people feel like the only, in my generation, the only way to maybe have gotten to that spiritual level was to have been in a structured position. Didn't mean you didn't have to have your own spiritual relationship with you know, God, or, but that was the case so. 'Cause I think today my daughters and that generation, they feel like it's nice but it's not imperative. In our generation it was more like, no, this is it. This is how you get to that spot. I'm not saying we were right just saying that's the way it was. And so through our lens, which is probably why your mom talks to you and I talk to my kids the way, you know, we're like, well back in my day. But there is kind of that feeling like, well this is what worked for us. So, I guess I would say just have empathy for what the sit the life we had. And I guess we have to have empathy back for you. But I don't know, I think that's it. I don't think it's that much different. I guess the question would be, yeah, what do you want the older generation what do you want us to know about? - Oh, okay, where do I start? - Your generation's spiritual beliefs. Oh boy, here we go. - Okay. I wish you guys would just like, I know you guys want us to be like exactly how you guys were and everything and abide by like, your religious beliefs and everything. And honestly we would probably be more, we'd probably be more willing to learn and, you know, abide by your guys' rules and everything if you guys would be more willing to, you know, take a look into what we wanna talk about and everything and let us, you know- - But there was a concept that parents should teach their children or parents know better than their kids. There was a concept. - There was a concept. And I really do believe my mom's always right. Like when she tells me not to do something, you know, like she's like, no I don't think it's a good idea. Like she like our parents always end up being right and everything, but there's a difference between you guys always being right about certain things and then just thinking you guys know everything. You know, like you guys try to like come in and tell us about things that we obviously know. Like, oh, that phone is not good for you. Or, you know but you guys don't know. You guys aren't on your phone, you guys aren't on TikTok and everything like us. And we would be more willing if you guys would be more willing to, you know, see some of the stuff that we like to do and you know the reasons behind, you know, why we just sneak around you guys and just do it behind your backs and everything because we know if we do it right in front of your eyes, you guys are gonna be, blow up on us and give us a lecture and you know. - Not all the time. No, 'cause, well my wife and I, we've had to, we remembered that we did things that we probably shouldn't have done- - Yeah. - As teenagers and. - You guys don't want us to make the same mistakes. But think about it though, if you wouldn't have made those mistakes- - No, that's true. - Then you wouldn't have those lessons or anything. - That's true. - You guys wanna shelter us and not let us make the same mistakes as you guys. But if we don't make those mistakes, how are we gonna learn? - I guess that's true. - You know, you touch the stove once, you don't touch it again.
