As we all know girls tend to mature up quickly, but is there something called being too mature for your age?? of that am certain. I have been going through a phase in my life that is making me think my mum might have confused my birth dates. LOL. Age is a very sensitive topic in a woman’s life. I realized that when I got a little bit older. I am very proud of my age but I have once lied that i was older just to fit in, how ironic because most women would lie of being younger. Maybe 10yrs from now, I will be giving a different story. JUST MAYBE.
We’re going to have a quick psychology-esque lesson today. What do you understand by maturity in this context? How do you even define it? Emotional maturity in the context. How emotionally mature do you feel, in comparison with your biological age? The simplest definition of emotional maturity is knowing how to respond to the different environment in the appropriate manner. Makes sense I hope. My 2cents-as adults, we need to know our purpose in life (sooner or later) to help us understand our interactions and the intentionality that comes with it. Feels like stuff you think about in your late 30’s, no?
I haven’t been on this beautiful planet for long (biologically) but I feel like I’m quite an old soul (emotionally+spiritually). I’m more and more intentional with my actions i.e rarely get spontaneous with my actions i.e. I rarely just ‘wing it’. I put so much thought into what I do, who I interact with and what not: stuff that most people around my age conclude. Live spontaneously, YOLO, close your eyes and have fun in your early 20’s they say. Which is great, by all means. But I get to think above value for my time. Shouldn’t we all though?
Small talk isn’t as exciting as it used to be. How about you tell me what keeps you up all night, your worst fears, regrets, emotional insecurities. Eh, this sounds really deep but I hope you get what am driving at. I look forward to sleeping more than going out-sleep is DIVINE! I forgive more, let’s just face it -grudges are a lot of work to hold onto. Being more accommodative of other people’s diversities is something I’m working onto achieving day by day too. Fights? They don’t solve much. I’m learning to hold my tongue when angry and figure out that s#*t when I’m calm. This is hard. You know how pretty tense we (ladies) can get hehe. I can go on and on about this but I guess your cup of tea/coffee is starting to get a tad cold so I’ll end here. I hope this has been an interesting read for you guys.
