  1. What a stupid superficial article, if scarring was going to make people wise then middle East and Muslim countries will be the keepers of wisdom

  2. Some folks are defining by their hardships how old they should be as if the experiences are the entire criteria. Yet, are you still here? Would you if you encounter the same thing you experienced know how to handle it? Know how to handle that person? Know how to get out of it? Know that ultimately you will survive, get through it? Learned any lesson from it? If any or all of these answers can be answered truthfully, if any of these answers finds you knowing more about yourself and who you are and who you are not besides what society says you should be than yes, you have matured. Otherwise, you have just gone through some things and still waiting for the punchline. Maturity means you look at what you have gone through and on this side of the storms, you know they were no doubt meant for you to learn something, meant for you to get through them and if by chance you learned from them, you can count yourself matured. If all you can relate to is that you have gone through many hardships and as a result, you can sing the blues; or, if you encounter those experiences again, you are in remedial, on replay and maturity has not come to you yet.

  3. I so believe that age does not mean mature, and have even realized it too. Character is formed from our homes I believe. The formative years, but those challenges we go through helps us to mature even faster and helps us to shed light on things. Look at them from different perspectives. When I went through my challenges I never thought of it refining me like it did, and all I can say now is thank. For without them I may not have been the person I am today. Lovely, lovely article.

    1. Thank you. I feel the same. Sadly, what bothers me at times is the knowledge there are parents out here who cripple their children to the point of beyond the years when they should be at least grasping maturity because they shield them, save them, prevent them from reaching maturity. They think they are saving their children from hardships and not realizing hardships are what teaches you. Hones you, shapes you to be a mature adult.The options you choose, decisions you make, consequences and repercussions you get yourself through and beyond. How you do so without hurting others, learning from what you decide and endure. I have met many, many old fools. Age does not necessarily mean maturity, it is what you go through, how you handle what you go through and that you understand something was to be learned, felt, endured and sometimes simply that you survived becomes life's lessons. Without it you are simply stagnant, waiting on someone else to fight your battles, save the day, and stop the hurt. When you become mature, you realize all of those are going to be you.
