The Age of Maturity…

“Age is only but a number that offers a grand illusion of maturity to the unsuspecting. The higher the number, the more likely the susceptibility to this state of delusion. Contrary to the prevailing belief system, with age does not come maturity. Life has shown that men advanced in age can be left destitute of wisdom and sound counsel thus causing disbelief at certain attitudinal display at times.Maturity is a conscious state of being. It is a decision not just an acquisition through elongated existence on planet earth. Sadly, it is pretty easy to bask in the grandeur of this sad delusion.” – NubianWaters

  1. Jesus! This is the sad realization that plunged me in the depth of sadness yesterday!!! ‘How do I combat this resulting inferiority complex?’, I pondered through out yesternight…

  2. Wow…that’s interesting!

    Well, from a personal point of view, the remedy to immaturity starts with acknowledging there is a deficiency in that quarters.That is the beginning on the road to recovery.
    – Identify specific areas in which you need to step up to the plate.
    – Analyse your present attitudinal disposition to such character flaw(s).
    – Seek alternative and better approach(es) to behaving in areas you deem flawed.
    – Make a conscious decision to implement change.

    It would not be an overnight thing but the most important thing is, you are more aware of the choices you are making when responding to situations in and around you. Even when you fail in the process, righting the wrong should be key. For example, taking responsibility and apologizing when needed.

    God help us all.
