Maturity is when a person hurts you and you try to understand their situation rather than hurting them back. – Unknown
People call themselves to be mature enough, but you can claim yourself to be mature enough only when you judge people by putting yourself into their shoes. Yes, at times, we are too quick to judge people around us, but that is not right.
You will see people yelling at you, or just blaming you for nothing, and you shout at them back. Well, did you even bother to take a pause and think what made them do so all of a sudden?
Maturity is when you stop and start to analyze the situation instead of reverting them with the same kind of response instantly. It is essential to give a try in analyzing people around you, particularly when you are aware of the usual behavioral traits of that same person.
Give yourself a thought if that day has been a bad day for him or her, maybe! You should be mature enough to understand the situation from that person’s perspective and try solving the puzzle, and you will start fetching the answers all by yourself.
I know, you might be hurt, but if you are mature enough, you will not hurt that person in return. Instead of reciprocating that individual with the same behavior, you would rather try to analyze the situation and try to think it from their perspective.
It is essential to understand that life happens, and you will definitely not want to give the same behavior to the person who has done wrong with you. When others do wrong with you, it doesn’t mean that you will also do wrong with them.
Instead of hurting the other person, you should stay calm and try to track the circumstances that he or she might have been going through, and that’s what is termed as ‘maturity’ in the true sense.
You should be composed enough to handle the situation in your own unique with a lot of love and compassion.
