"Emotional maturity implies controlling of emotion rather than letting emotion get the better of you."
What are the things to consider when they say, emotionally mature? Did you know that a person can be chronologically mature, but emotionally immature? You may be well into your 30s but still be childish in so many ways, like you take everything personally. You feel bad when you don't get attention, or cry when things don't go your way. Are you people like this? I admit sometimes before in my life, I used to act like this, but I found out that this is not good, especially when you have to deal with different people. How will you understand and improve your relationship with other people if you're emotionally immature? We must understand our self first, before other people can understand us. Acting as if we can't do anything on tough situation or and easily giving -up, can be sign of emotionally immature. We need to face the reality in a given situation.
Mostly people now make their decisions comes from conclusions or react in given situations based on how things feel to them. Emotionally mature people can experience true empathy. And the empathy is a prime requirement for successful relationships that can make one's emotionally mature. In your own words, how will you define emotionally mature?
"Being emotionally mature doesn't mean getting old, but it's growing-up."
