What Maturity Is

What Maturity is – According to Ann Landers

  • Maturity is the ability to control anger and settle differences without violation or destruction
  • Maturity is patience, the willingness to pass up immediate pleasure in favor of the long term gain
  • Maturity is perseverance, sweating out a project in spite of opposition and discouraging setbacks
  • Maturity is unselfishness, responding to the needs of others
  • Maturity is the capability to face unpleasentness and disappointment without becoming bitter
  • Maturity is humility. A mature person is able to say “I’m wrong.” He is also able to say, “I am sorry.” And when is proved right, he does not have to say “I told you so.”
  • Maturity means dependability, integrity, keeping one’s word. The immature have excuses for everything. They are chronically tardy, the no shows, the gutless wonder who fold in a crises. Their lives are a maze of broken promises, unfinished business and former friends.
  • To be mature means to act spontaneously, free from preconceived notions and the compulsion to be perfect and correct.

Dan aku tak ingin kau terluka.
Segenap jiwa akan kujaga keindahanmu”)
