"I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better." Maya Angelou

Maturity is a ongoing process. As you begin to reflect on your past, you are able to realize how much you have matured over the years. Maturity allows you to analyze how you may have handled certain situations differently. It can never come too soon because it can save you from decisions that you might regret later. Maturity is derived from many lessons learned. Stubbornness can prevent one from maturing. Your unwillingness to change or see things from a different point of view keeps you in the same place in life. Maturity is displayed by how you carry yourself, how you respond to certain situations, and how you choose your associations. There are certain people that you can not associate with because they do not act maturely. Additionally, immature individuals handle situations differently from those individuals who have matured. Mature people try not to involve themselves in drama. When in the midst of a chaotic situation they either attempt to calm down the situation or remove themselves from the situation entirely. The worst thing to witness is an adult acting immaturely. If you don't know how to behave, what hope is there for the younger generation that is looking up to you? Maturity is learned it is not taught, it is a development that comes from within. You can be taught to be responsible, but you have to make that individual decision to act in a mature manner. Maturity is developed over time as a result of your experiences and circumstances. Although, you can never change the past, you can strive for a better tomorrow.
