What is maturity? I have been asking myself this question for quite some time now. I am already 26 but some people around me still describe me as “childish”. Maybe, it’s the way I talk, the way I move or my clumsiness, or the way I think. I dunno. In a way, I am used to it, but sometimes, I still get offended. My boyfriend says if I’ll get affected by it, then, I really am childish. He has a point.
Actually, I don’t care much now. It’s just that, why do people see me that way? Do I have to change something about myself? I know, I have to improve myself in a lot of things and be more independent but what is their basis in telling me I am immature?
I think its definition is subjective. I know a lot of people who are even older than me but I find their actions “immature”. I may be a 14-year-old girl stuck in a 26-year-old body but I like who I am. I know how to respect people, I forgive easily, and I appreciate little things just like a kid.
Maturity cannot be measured by age. We learn through different experiences that shape who we are today. I’m pretty sure I will be wiser tomorrow.

Being grown up isn’t half as fun as growing up:
These are the best days of our lives.
The only thing that matters
is just following your heart
and eventually you’ll finally get it right.
