Define 'Maturity'

Good read. Good points.


"The things you learn in maturity aren't simple things such as
acquiring information and skills. You learn not to engage in
self-destructive behavior
. You learn not to burn up energy in anxiety.
You discover how to manage your tensions. You learn that self-pity and
resentment are among the most toxic of drugs.
You find that the world
loves talent but pays off on character."
 
"You come to understand that most people are neither for you nor
against you; they are thinking about themselves
. You learn that no matter
how hard you try to please, some people in this world are not going to love
you, a lesson that is at first troubling and then really quite relaxing."

- Maria Ressa, Head of News and Current Affairs, ABS-CBN

Good lessons to learn.  Let's all grow this 2011. ;)

CARPE DIEM!

reading this came at a really good time. having a really bad spat with a good friend because of so-called "maturity". what is that anyway? and why does the level of maturity vary from each person?
