|关注一亩三分地公众号：题目：Getting advice from friends who are older than you is more valuable than getting advice from friends in your same age.
It is universally admitted that older people have more wisdoms than the younger ones, and thus, many people tend to think that getting advice from the older is more valuable than from the same age. However, I personally object to the perspective, for a friend in the same age are more likely to feel what I feel and come up with advice which删 I need most.
First of all, the seniors, living on their experience that is somewhat old-fashioned, are often stereotypical and stubborn, away from the modern thoughts and conceptions. For instance, upon graduation from high school, my grandmother began to advise me to choose a teaching major, because in her perspective, teachers are stable, high-paid and easy to look for a husband LOL, “容易嫁老公”这么表达好像有点奇怪，最好改成“popular among men”?不知道还有没有更好的表达. As for my preference, to become an artist, is viewed by her as an arduous and useless job. My grandmother, similar to her generation, considers one’s career merely a way to make money instead of pursuing interests or dreams. On the contrary, my friends all supported my determination. With their accompany, I endured the hardest period and successfully passed the entrance examination of my dream school. As my sweet friend said, artist is a serious and respectful career. So the advice from the friends who are the same age is more useful.
In addition, friends in the same age are much more likely to feel what I feel because they are confused by the similar experience. Taking myself as an example, it was really a desperate time when I firstly fell in love, fessed up but were was rejected unfortunately. I truly had a broken heart, felt disappointed with myself and even tried to commit suicide. My parents, however told me that I did not understand what love truly meaned and warned me not to do anything might affect my academic achievements. My affection was thought ridiculous and naive, which deeply hurt me. What is my friends’ advice? They hold me and told me if I swept, there were tears in their eyes also. Peers who stand on the same life phase and observe life from the same window, not only give me their precious advice but also share their feelings which forms the wide difference between advice from the older and the peers.
To sum up, advice from friends at the same age is more reliable and precious than those from the old. With the peer’s suggestions, we see life as a whole, becoming nobler than we are, wiser than we are and better than we feel.
另外一个原因，LZ举的第二个例子并不好，早恋对于美国人不算一个问题，“My parents, however told me that I did not understand what love truly meaned and warned me not to do anything might affect my academic achievements.”。还有，“a teaching major, because in her perspective, teachers are stable, high-paid and easy to look for a husband”这样的话美国评卷官读起来会觉得有些confusing，他们会想“这个考生是哪国人啊？在他们国家，老师很好嫁老公么？”.
