THE CUSP OF GROWING UP

The cusp of growing up, the point of transition between two different states.

Something that we all certainly forget to acknowledge is the difference between aging and growing up.

Most people have a cup of coffee and study, get their degree, successfully find a parking space, empty their credit card, get a full time job, get married, have children and call themselves grown up’s.

Well I guess that is called as aging and not as maturity.

Maturity is when you don’t just say you would keep it a secret, but you do it.

Maturity is when you help someone in need without expecting anything in return, or in better words maturity is when you help someone in need without uploading that scene on any social media.

Maturity is when you stand by your loved one, when they needed you the most.

Maturity is when you pay off your friends debts, without expecting them to know it.

Maturity is saying sorry, when you know you are wrong.

Do you realize that all the above said words, involves two people.

Because maturity is when other peoples feelings matter more than your own.OOTB_When_I_Grow_Up_12_OOTBEventPage

The cusp of growing up,

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” , Well that’s easy to say.

Facing life’s challenges are not as easy as it sounds, When life throws you a rotten lemon, what would you do?

Don’t just age, get matured! Learn to question your mistakes, respect others feelings.

And trust me, when you do this, they will be the person standing next to you and trying to save you from all those dirty rotten lemons that life throws at you.

    • A careless person would never bother to commit to things, or people.
      But again, it depends on the person and also the situation because People have interpretations of what you’re supposed to be like. If you’re unattractive and overweight, you must have a great personality. If you’re attractive, then you must not be the nicest person.
      Similarly it depends on the persons mindset.
      Honestly speaking on my behalf, YES I do consider commitment as maturity, or I would rather put it as, maturity is the one that leads to commitments.
      Maturity is when you start setting goals in life, then you start committing to your goals, if you are sincere, and responsibilities also come hand in hand with this!

      • I totally agree and yes indeed society has expectations and labels. The only reason I asked was because of this …

        “Most people have a cup of coffee and study, get their degree, successfully find a parking space, empty their credit card, get a full time job, get married, have children and call themselves grown up’s.”

        I just wanted to know why you placed marriage and children in the description of so called grown ups. I understand that people have different views and I just wanted to know the reason you chose to place those two in that particular paragraph. But what you said is totally right!

  1. I wrote so because, I personally believe that, the ultimate dreams of many people is to get married and have kids, or to get to the so called “getting settled” state in life. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to get married and have kids, I just believe that the balance must exist where people should learn to explore themselves and not feel contended after fulfilling the “getting married dream”, cause at that point of life is when they think they are grown up, and so they stop exploring both themselves and the world.
