    Default Hmmm...

    I think I just found out what it means to be mature today. It's not about defiance. It's not about being contrary; for being contrary for the sake of itself is just the symptom of a person who's trying to hang on to a shred of confidence.

    It's about listening and figuring your own shit out from square one. It's not even a conscious process. It's out of necessity.

    I think maturation is very much a conscious process. Conscious effort to make better choices.

    Well, it's conscious for progression, but not conscious of itself. You don't sit down and say "I want to mature". You simply mature by maturing.

    'Consciousness' signifies a degree of awareness. Given that definition (Merriam-Webster's), wouldn't "listening and figuring shit out" be an entirely conscious process? To not listen and figure shit is what one would be progressing away from, as you stated, so wouldn't going against your instincts be a conscious endeavor?

    I think that you're mature when you think it's a compliment when someone thinks you're younger than you really are.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.
