Experiencing Maturity.

Extracts from this document...


Experiencing Maturity What is maturing? Is it believing in different things, or is it a way that you are supposed to act. Maturing can be a guideline in your life where you can say, "ok I'm 21 years old, I am in college and I need to act this way", but for some it does not really work like that. For some people, staying young and immature is what they want to do, that's why sometimes you catch yourself judging a person by how they act.
