When it comes to emotional maturity, age is only a number. I’ve known young people who are mature beyond their years and older people who are childish, and not in a good way. Being mature is not letting go of your inner child and acting all serious all the time. It’s deeper than this. You can be a kid at heart and emotionally mature at the same time.
What exactly is emotional maturity, and what makes you mature or not?
1- Small talks no longer excite you
Great minds discuss ideas.
Average minds discuss events.
Small minds discuss people.
2- You respect differences and don’t judge people (anymore)
You’re more open-minded.
3- Sleep is better than a Friday night out
4- You don’t force love
You know better. You’ve already learned your lesson, perhaps the hard way.
5- You take care of your mental health
You know how much it matters too well by now.
6- You are supportive of others
7- You know how to ask for help when you need it
8- You feel your feelings
And you embrace them instead of bottling them up or running away from them.
9- You don’t cling to materialist things (anymore)
10- You know your worth
You’re no longer unkind to yourself.
