Does Maturity Come with Age or How We Handle Our Life Situations?

What makes a person mature? Many psychologists believed that maturity is based on how individuals are able to cope with their circumstances they are facing in their lives with ease and patience. It does not matter how old you are, if you run away from your problems and get upset when you cannot get your way, then you are immature. I am 21 years old and have been misconceived to be wild and irresponsible because of the stigma that most people my age are childish.

Being a certain age does not make you mature and a person has to realize at some point in their they are going to have to grow up and take responsibility for their actions. Most teenagers believe that when they turn 18 years old they are considered to be an adult. Although when you are 18 you can get a license and vote in local and state elections, this alone does not truly make you an adult. Being an adult is about making sacrifices and making sure that you take ownership of the situations you choose to place yourself in.

There should be a set of goals you should strive to accomplish on a daily basis and not sit and wait for opportunities to find you. Some people will never learn how to stop acting childish and immature because they do not see their behavior as a problem. Do you ever wonder if your attitude towards how you choose to handle life is keeping you from being successful? For instance, I could go out every weekend, and choose to party and drink, but I know I would get no type of desire from doing those things because there are more productive things I could be doing.

There was a time in my life where I felt as though I had to do what everyone else is doing. I was ashamed to accept the fact that I was different and my life will not turn the same way as everyone else. I can remember when I was in high school, I used to get picked on for being very quiet and not hanging the wrong crowd. I was very different from most teenagers because I had to grow up pretty fast. There are life events that will determine how individuals will respond to others.

We all have set of issues that we deal with on a daily basis that can make or break us. Some people love to play the victim and will always blame someone else for why they cannot do certain things in life. It does not matter if you are broke, still living at home with your parents, or have no form of transportation to get to work. If you want your circumstances to chance, then do something about it. If you have a list of goals, you want to accomplish start to pick which goals you would like to complete first.

Time will fly by so quickly that an opportunity that can change your life for the better, may not come around a second time. You have to take risks in life to have the ability to face your fears with confidence. Things may not work out with in certain situations, but there is always a lesson to learn in life. If you are not taking life seriously, don’t expect people around you to take you seriously. There is always a time and place for everything. There is a time to joke around and a time to make important business decisions. Time can be wasted just by getting distracted by aspects of life that should not hold any value toward our wellbeing.

If you arrive late to work, your boss will be upset at the fact you are not taking your job seriously. Whether you are in school, have a job, want to be an entrepreneur, or etc. the same time and energy you have for when you are doing are homework or completing job tasks, you should be prompt and assertive when dealing with the stress of life. Stop making up excuses for why you can’t get certain goals accomplish, if you have a dream, them make that dream your reality.

Wisdom is only granted to individuals who take the initiative to fix their wrongdoings and don’t sit and dwell in the past. You don’t need validation or recognition from anyone to complete certain tasks. Everyone does not need to know your every move and some things just need be keep to yourself. Life is all about growing up and learning from your past mistakes. Each year as you get older you shouldn’t be making the same mistakes you made when you were younger. Some people will have to go through several storms before they realize their way of thinking needs to change so then can handle situations in a more efficient way.
