Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Getting advice from friends who are older than you is more valuable than getting from friends of your same age. Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.

I agree with this idea that friends who are older than you can guide you in a more valuable way than your same-age friends. because they have more experience, a wider range of information, and they less probable mislead you. First of all, Friends who are older than you have more experience. they know mistakes or approaches which lead to success or failure. for example, if you played volleyball and participated in a competition, the background of an older player would help you to not lose the competition. Secondly, they have more variety of information than you that expand your field of view. if you had a wider field of view, you would solve the problem in a different way that could not solve before. for instance, an older friend can invent an efficient solution for your family issues with his or her different opinion which you could not solve by yourself. finally, they rarely mislead you or hurt you with their recommendation, friends who are older than you are more wiser and logical than your same age. Therefore, they hardly decide the wrong option and make mistakes because of their experience and information. indeed, in a crisis, their advice is more valuable than your same-age friends that probably could not act better than you. In general, I respect all my friends' advice, however, I apply the guidance of friends who are older than me, more in my decision. because I believe a person who is older than you can better advise you since they experience the problems at least once before.
