In general, my family have problems with maturity. They have often acted in immature ways.
This problem has been compounded for me as I spent my formative years fighting depression.
It is difficult to mature properly if you are fighting an illness.
You will learn a lot,..how to face adversity, how to survive pain, how to do most of the heavy lifting yourself,..
However, there are areas of life that I missed out on.
This all becomes evident in later life.
There are times when it can be flattering.
People will remark that I do not look my age, for example.
However, they make comments that are not so flattering, or will express puzzlement when they realise that I am not as they might expect someone of my age to be.
There is a discrepancy between my chronological age and my inner maturity.
This is something that can embarrass or worry me.
I understand how this happened. It is one of my goals to increase in maturity.
