maturity

Postby Psykiblue on Wed Feb 04, 2009 2:34 pm

I was looking through my drawers as I randomly do sometimes and came across this that my nan had.

maturity is the ability to control anger and settle differences without violence or destruction.

maturity is patience. It is the willingess to pass up immediate pleasure in favour of long term gain.

maturirty is perseverance, the ability to sweat out a project or a situation in spite of heavy opposition and discouraging setbacks.

maturity is the capacity to face unpleasantness and frustration discomfort and defeat without complaint or collapse.

maturity is humility. It is being big enough to say I was wrong and when right, the mature person need not experience the satisfaction of saying I told you so.

maturity is the ability to make a decision and stand by it. The immature spend their lives exploring endless possibilities then they do nothing.

maturity means dependability keeping's one's word, coming through in a crisis. the immature are masters of the alibi. they are the confused and the disorganized. Their lives are a maze of broken promises, former friends, unfinished business, and good intentions that somehow never materalize.

Maturity is the art of living in peace with that which we cannot change, the courage to change that which should be changed and the wisdom to know the difference.
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.

All of that is a HUGE issue with Aaron. He is extremely immature, thought reading through that, I also identified areas where I am not the most mature either. Thanks for posting this. I am going to print it out.

That's my hubby. I am not perfect or 100% mature by any stretch of the imagination, but this is my hubby to a T.

holy cow you just helped me find the perfect description of the man sitting in fron to me! I am by no means perfect, nor am I ever going to claim to be, but I try to become a person that people would be proud to know little by little each day. I write blogs and I think I am going to post the last line of that in there.

Isn't maturity and wisdom along the same lines? Aren't they supposed to grow older and get more wisdom as they grow?

I guess we were/are stuck with a lot of men who are just not growing up :jeebus
