    Sometimes people go too far

    when trying to prove how "mature" they are, and instead end up sounding like insensitive jerks.

    I think I've written here

    before about this guy from school. He's relentless. The constant calls, texts, stopping me in the hallways. Trying to get my attention, touching me, grabbing me. I don't think I can be any clearer when I say I don't want anything to do with him. He obviously isn't getting it...

    I do admire maturity,

    maturity to me, means having as little bias as possible, accepting people, being respectful, and being an example of a good person.

    I admire it when a guy isn't always showing off

    and being annoying, a guy who has some control and isn't always acting like an idiot show off.

    I admire maturity, but I also like to have some

    fun and be immature at times. Some people take immaturity to far at times, but like I said I also like to have a good time joking around.

    This morning I found myself awakened by ruckus

    in the hallway of the apartment complex I stay in. Turns out a few people who were trying to get out of the rain who were passing by and decided to hang out in the hall disturbing all of my neighbors along with myself. I politely confronted them and explained they were going to...

    When we are mature We learn to cut off the

    arrogance and pettiness We give chances for the patience and calmness When we are mature We learn to tolerate Not because the other deserves it, but to preserve our own being. When we are mature, We learn the art of giving peace, to to others and ourselves.

    I admire it because I can't stand immature people. People with a higher maturity level understand me unlike immature people. So yeah I admire it, I seek it too.

    I admire maturity with my friends.

    I am mature and I love that in others too. When I was a child I acted as a child. When I became an adult I grew into being mature. These are great words of truth for everyone to live by.

    Immature people--Basically,

    people who haven't grown up mentally are just losers and they're annoying. Most parents these days are pretty immature so their children grow up crazy...I'm probably choosing the wrong words right now but i'm trying to be honest... I'm more adult than any of these so called...

    You can be 18 or 48. You are only as young as you feel and only as wise as you are.

    Experience is knowledge. Knowledge is a loss of innocence. Maturity is the loss of innocence. Therefore maturity comes with experience.
