As is vividly demonstrated in the figure, beside a number stand two men, with one of them saying that the number is six while the other holding that it is nine.
The implication conveyed by the picture to us is that people always voice their opinion from their own perspective instead of putting themselves in others’ shoes, which is a pervasive phenomenon in our daily life. Nothing makes me quite so much concerned as the issue that there is a lack of empathy among the general public. Then, what are the invisible reasons behind the phenomenon reflected by this picture? First and foremost, with competition becoming increasingly fierce, the public become more concerned about their own business but indifferent to that of others. What makes the matter worse is that some people rather miss the point, putting all their energy and passion into expressing their own views rather than listening to the opinions of others.
From what has been mentioned above, it is high time that sufficient importance should be attached to empathy. Besides, thinking from others’ perspective is the single best thing we can do if we want to get along well with others, which is the key to personal relationship. Only in this way, can we have a good social network.
As is clearly demonstrated in the line chart, there is a series of figures showing the number of senior citizens in China. It can be seen that the number of senior citizens increased steadily from 2010 to 2050, starting from 140 million (10%) in 2010, undergoing 200 million (14%)in 2015, and eventually ending up with 400 million (25%) in 2050.
So what are the reasons behind the phenomenon mirrored by the chart? First and foremost, the impact of the one child policy which was implemented for several decades to effectively control the population of China is emerging. What’s more, with the living standard improving, people tend to live a healthy life, which enables them to achieve a much longer life expectancy. Last but not least, the young couples become more reluctant to have a baby because their shoulders are overburdened due to the unprecedented high level of house price and living expenses.
From what has been analyzed above, we can easily come to the conclusion that it is urgent for the government to make some incentive policies to relieve the phenomenon of aging population. Only in this way, can we have a bright future to look forward to.
