A couple of days ago I was having a chat with my cousin and we were discussing this idea of compromising what we believe in for others and as you know, I'm kinda passionate about not being a hypocrite and while we were in the middle of the discussion I said to her "we're not pretending for others we're just being grown up about it".
It was in that moment I realized what being mature in a situation is about. It's not the idea of always doing the right thing or what I believe in but it's about doing what's for the greater good.
Although in understanding this I also finally got the full understanding of "fake it till you make it" because sometimes you really have to just push through circumstances for the sake of not upsetting the apple cart.
While we continued chatting I must be honest I realized that we have a lot in common! I already knew that but her answers to some of my questions or responses to what I was saying we're just about identical to what I have probably already said 10 years ago. It's in this conversation that while I may "28 going on 18" in many ways I think I've finally plateaued in being the same age as my level of maturity.
Do you think you act your age?
