    When you eventually have your own kids and you need to mature to take care of them.
    But until then....
    A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes,
    I screamed aloud, as it tore through them,
    and now it's left me blind...

    Being able to know when to look at a situation objectively vs subjectively, and then how/when to act appropriately.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    When we are born, we are born without any maturity whatsoever.

    And this is expressed in being unable to modulate our own emotions. So we rely upon our parents to modulate our emotions for many, many years.

    But as we mature we slowly and painfully learn to modulate our own emotions and moods.

    So maturity is the ability to modulate our own moods.

    Well, sorry to have offended you personally but I see it all the time online.

    The idea of "maturity" implies that we reach a point where we are done growing. I've seen plenty of people who would be considered "mature" by most standards who had stopped growing and could not reach a level of excellence because of that. Maturity is the flat plateau that leads off the cliff of regret.

    Don't stop growing...
