Maturity

Hey guys,

So this topic has been on my mind for a while. Maturity. How can the maturity of a person be defined? Everybody knows the quote, “Age doesn’t define maturity” and I absolutely agree but sometime the problem isn’t knowing if someone is mature but accepting the fact that they are mature.

I think maturity is an ongoing process. You don’t just wake up on your 18th birthday, and all of a sudden you are mature. Yes, when you are 18, you are legally an adult, but does that really make you mature?

 

I feel there are certain traits  when you mature and they are as follows:

  1. Take ownership and responsibility of your actions
  2. Control your emotions
  3. Have the ability to listen and evaluate other people’s opinion
  4. Accept negative feedback as a way to improve oneself
  5. Walk away from people who have a negative impact on your life
  6. Think of consequences before you act
  7. Know when to apologise
  8. Materialistic things make you smile but it doesn’t define happiness
  9. You take care of others but you also take care of yourself
  10. Learning that you can’t control everything, so you make the best of it

 

“We don’t mature through age. We mature in awareness.” – Byron Katie
