What is it?

I have been told I was immature by people because I enjoy goofing off and am almost always smiling or happy.

I'm not a dumb-ass, I just like to have fun and I know when its appropriate.

Really though, I see having a good attitude and loving life as a sign of maturity.

Seeing the light in dark times is tough, and just because I can doesn't make me immature.

Seriously, how would you guys define maturity.

The definition of maturity is the point in your life when you cease to notice and criticize others lack of maturity.

Having responsibility, and being able to identify when you made a mistake and fix it.

It doesn't matter what YOURS or OURS definition of maturity is. If the majority of people think you're immature, then you probably are.


edit: although I think you're pretty mature from the way you worded your first post, TS.

Wording has nothing to do with it, ugh. I hate when people say stuff like this. The most awesome writer could be the most immature person.

Mature, imho = thinking before you speak.

P.S. I'm a womanfolk! : )

I'd say a combination of self reliance and the ability to put things in perspective.

The definition is to crush your enemies before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.

I agree with rabidguitarist, to know the consequences of your actions, but also to handle by these consequences.

Not drinking whatever the hell I drank last night, because I sure as hell regret it I'd say the best definition was the first reply to be honest though.

When you have more hair growing out your ears, nose and arse than your head THEN young one, you have attained maturity.
