Maturity Is Not By Age, Here Are 5 Qualities Of A Matured Person. by blazepascal(m): 3:27pm On Jun 11
These days, we hear stories of people who are old enough to be intelligent, but who are behaving in a childlike manner, whilst those who are younger than 18 and are referred to as youngsters are actually more mature. The truth is that, in today's world, maturity is not determined by age, size, race, gender, or anything else. Anybody can be mature, and anyone may be juvenile; it all depends on our individual habits and view on life, and nothing else.
The fact that a person is beyond 40 years old does not imply that he or she has reached maturity. This key concept called as Maturity is essentially concerned with how a person perceives and responds to life's challenges and adversities. In this post, I'll share with you five characteristics of a mature person, which demonstrate that maturity is not determined by age, but rather by one's ability to reason and reason well. Take a look at them below.

1. A mature person is unconcerned about what other people think of them or what they do.
In order for a person to be considered mature, they must recognize that the opinions of others about them are meaningless to them. And that being oneself is the best thing they can do

2. A mature person understands that the best response to fools is to remain silent.
A mature individual should never waste his or her valuable time responding to trolls on the internet. When it comes to people who talk and spread tales about someone, the best response is always silence.

3. A mature individual is more concerned with changing himself or herself than with changing others.
A truly mature person does not waste their time trying to change others by criticizing them; instead, they devote their time and energy to improving themselves. People are accepted for who they are by them.

4. A mature person forgives and forgets, and they do not seek retribution.
A mature person does not harbor grudges or harbor animosity toward those who have offended them. Instead, they choose to forgive, forget, and let fate deal with those who have wronged them.

5. A mature person learns to keep their distance from people who are toxic to him or her.
Peace of mind, self-respect, and self-worth are all extremely essential to mature individuals, which is why they avoid toxic friendships as much as possible.

So the question is are you martured?

At the bolded text, your assertion is ambiguous.
2.

That is not totally correct. I wonder where you got this information. There are times were strict deterrent caution the behavior of a person.

3. A mature individual is more concerned with changing himself or herself than with changing others.
A truly mature person does not waste their time trying to change others by criticizing them; instead, they devote their time and energy to improving themselves. People are accepted for who they are by them.

4.
A mature person forgives and forgets, and they do not seek retribution.
A mature person does not harbor grudges or harbor animosity toward those who have offended them. Instead, they choose to forgive, forget, and let fate deal with those who have wronged them.
Assertion not correct. Always forgiving people set precedence for others to continue an act. They tend to use religious beliefs to lure people to forgive ( emotional blackmail)

5. A mature person learns to keep their distance from people who are toxic to him or her.
Peace of mind, self-respect, and self-worth are all extremely essential to mature individuals, which is why they avoid toxic friendships as much as possible.

Opemiposii:

Only a foolish person forgets after forgiving.

No wise man forgives and forgets. Forgive? That's alright but forget? Don't do that.

God constantly reminded the people of Israel how their father sinned and were punished.
He has forgiven them but he didn't forget.

Maturity is to grow your values and spread positivity. Maturity is to see big yansh and look am once, checking again is childish.

I disagree totally with your number one submission that a mature person does not care what the people say about his or her action as long as you are convinced that it is right.

Let me tell you, the first sign of a matured person is that he or she is mindful of their actions. In other words they still have shame in their eyes. They are conscious of the after effect of their actions.

They can't afford to have anything stain their public image so they make pronouncement only after they have thought it through severally, unlike some of the people we see around today who lie eventhough they've sworn to an oath.
