    I'm 13 years old with goals ahead of me

    and a load if experience with death. Most 13 year olds nowadays care more about boys and how short they can get their skirts. I, however am more interested in doing well in school so I can carry on with my education to become a Counselling Psychologist. I also want a Lamborghini...

    I'm a 13 year old bi girl.

    Whenever I'm out with my parents or speaking to adults, they all always tell me i carry myself in a very mature manner, and i believe i do. The thing is i don try to, that's just the way i am. I have a brother 6 years older than me, so that could also be a reason I'm so mature...

    some people my age are like little kids

    and some kids are like full grown adults, you can't treat people based on age alone, I have had more fun with some younger people than I will ever have with some older

    Do inform me. What does the physical age of a

    person say about them, other than the amount of years that they have been living here? An age has no set limitation. For instance- some people learn to walk or talk earlier or later than others. It isn't weird. This is similar to maturity. You see, physical age and mental age...

    Generally, you may think

    that an older person is always more mature than a younger person. However, I've talked to several younger people who were more mature than their seniors or others older than them. I don't think that age defines maturity, because it doesn't always. A person's maturity is defined...

    You wouldn't believe my age

    because of this! Your age does not define you by a long shot! It depends on YOU and how you act! Not what your birth certificate says!

    People say they are open-minded

    and not judgmental of people they don't know, but so many people won't talk to me because I'm between the ages of 18-21, or when they do talk to me, it's of a very sexual and personal nature. Don't get me wrong, if it's the right person, then it makes for a fun time. I'm not so...

    problem with maturity is the same

    as anywhere else - the ideas most mature cannot be identified as that by people of lesser maturity so even "maturity" gets a victim of the masses idiotae

    I've had a better time with younger people

    than I've had with a lot of people my age, even teenagers, they deserve a lot more credit than we give them. They know more than a lot of people think they do, In a lot of things, a lot of younger guys have taught me a thing or two haha

    Don't ever judge a person by their looks,

    they could have the biggest heart, biggest soul, they maybe the kindest most caring person you will ever meet, but you will never know if you judge them before you know them, we are all equal, we all breathe the same air, we all have emotions, we all need food and water to live...

    I don't it depends on how you are raised

    and how much responsibility that's put on you. I'll be 15 in a little over 2 weeks, but I'm often told that I'm mature for my age. why is that? because my parents do not see me as a child nor do they allow me to act like one. I am a young adult with many responsibilities girls...

    Sometimes maturity is understanding how

    immature you once were. Before your brain is fully formed you can be mature for your age but you can not hold a candle to say someone who is 30. And when you are 30 if you have matured you understand this. It is only the immature that stand in chairs screaming "Everyone look...

    At a certain age, some people question

    who they truly are and what they are, we are all who we are, we do not choose to be this way we are born it, think we are all human no? So that's means we are all equal, we all breathe the same air, we all live on earth, we all have emotions, we all live we all die, we are all...

    Maturity can be defined simply by a persons

    attitude, little else! Age isn't relevant to it as much as everyone might think. Upbringing is a factor, a practicality in the definition.

    based off the quote I believe that's true.

    When it comes to student

    Just because you are 18-21 doesn't mean you are

    mature, mentally. There are very immature people that age, I'm sure. A 13-15 year old could know better then a 18-21 year can. I just hate when "adults" on here tell me, "oh u r 13 so u r not mature at all! ur just a child". Not true.
