Found a shared quote on FB about maturity.
Maturity is about not getting irritated with another, but about understanding the situation in which the other is which in turn compels them to do what they do. Maturity sounds a horrible state to be in then, all of a sudden. I’m temporarily stepping out of it, now until I can figure out how no harm/hurt can come my way.
The quote in itself is placed from a location where one party is being childish and the other being mature. There is a certain amount of hurt involved on the part of the childish. What about the hurt inflicted on M, then? However, being mature is to understand the original cause of the hurt, stay calm and react to the childishness in its own way. It just says M’s heart is made of stone!!
Something to ponder about.
How many of us actually think about another’s circumstances before reacting to what they do. It is difficult. Sometimes yes, other times no. What about you?
Let’s assume that a set of people live with more than a few problems. In their course of being immersed in them aren’t they trying to make other (mature) people who are positive, sound negative. Or at least drive them up the wall… I’ve come across many such. (Come on, we all are such at some times.) It is sad, the situation you see, people may be going through something very bad in life. They would have found some hope in a person or thing or a thought. The thought can be religion, one such, the person cab in in an affair, workaholism can be the thing …. through which they try to run into escapism, ways in which some of these people act to take out their frustration. The ridiculous part is they may even stand by it, adamantly!! It sometimes is shocking their levels of assurance in the negative.
Empathetically, it is hard when a problem hits you, harder when there is nobody reliable to speak to or confide in. The latter in itself adds more crisis in life.
So the next best thing usually is find a means to vent it out. However, this venting process only a handful can partake in. The rest of the majority cannot as venting may not be a freedom they possess.
So the next best option then would be to take up something and staunchly believe in it. It could be that source of joy these folks get from and that it could be one of the last strands of hope. They would vouch on it, for it, but then we know why they do that. That is what the quote means by maturity, is what I think.
Poor such! let’s give them a break, let them vent out, show their frustration. We being the positive and luckier folks to have better times and life, can listen, remain silent or just show them our support! And hope they begin to believe in themselves some day. Difficult, but what else can we the (mature) folks do 😛 😛 I’m stood up and been there for my friends, in the same way, they have been there for me! But, this quote prioritizes the childish! Why! On top of all that why are people celebrating such quotes! Buck up, let go, and live after you have wallowed enough in self pity! O don’t want to be mature if this quote is around! Being mature seems such a pain in every part of the body 😛 and a boring state of being!! ahaa 😛 😛 😛
