I Admire Maturity

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,039 People

    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...

    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.

    Age doesnt define maturity

    or not but maturity is one thing that everyone should have at one point of time. there are times when we have encountered people telling the wrong thing at the wrong time. how does it feel when we are taken for a ride? the worst part is the people who are responsible for...

    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.

    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 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.

    Sometimes people go too far

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

    HOWEVER, typically, the longer you live, the more opportunity you have during which to gather experience, and hence, greater wisdom.
