A person earns respect in the society as per his maturity. When a person becomes matured, then everyone starts respecting them. We must learn to be a mature person when we are dealing with people in our society. If we act like an immature person then not people will disrespect us but will also laugh at us.
Signs of maturity
1. Should understand the difference between helping others and being used
Every person since childhood should learn to lend helping hand to other. Whenever someone is in a problem and needs help, we must rush to help them. But we must understand the difference between helping others and allowing others to take advantage of it. Thus, maturity is when we become aware of the fact that people are treating us like a puppet. This is the first sign of maturity.
2. Should say no in a proper way
It is not necessary that our choices will match with others. For instance, if a person asks us to do anything which we are not willing to do, then we should say no properly. Instead of getting angry and reacting aggressively, one can say no in a humble manner. If we act aggressively, then it will not only worsen the situation, but that person will disrespect us. But, if we explain the fact to them or refuse in a proper way, then the person will appreciate us for being a matured person.
3. Taking good qualities from another
Every person has both bad and good qualities on him or her, so we must accept the good quality from every person and must also prevail on it. This is also another sign of maturity.
4. Should know when to stop an argue
There will always be a difference of opinion between two people. If we debate or argue with a person who is not even ready to listen to us, then stop arguing immediately. Instead of getting emotional and act impulsively, a person must act maturely. This also reveals how matured a person is. So
5. Taking responsibilities in one’s hand
Maturity does not come with age because it doesn’t make a person mature, but responsibility makes. So when a person takes more responsibility into his hand, more mature the person will become.
6. Should know how to behave with an individual
The five fingers of the hand are not equal similarly every person are not same. Some might get offended or hurt very easily whereas some might not, so if a person gets hurt or angry very easily then we must not behave or talk with the person in that way that will make the person angry or might hurt the person easily instead we must behave in that way that will help us in maintaining a good relationship with that person. This is also a major sign of maturity.
