Dear Ann Landers: Recently when I chaired an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, I
began by reading your definition of maturity. Everyone was impressed, and many
requested copies. It’s time to print “Maturity” in your column again. —H.C., Concord.
Dear H.C.: I agree. Thanks for asking. Here it is:
Maturity is the ability to control anger and settle differences without violence and
destruction. Maturity is patience. It is the willingness to pass up immediate pleasure in
favor of long-term gain. Maturity is perseverance, the ability to sweat out a project or a
situation in spite of heavy opposition and discouraging setbacks. Maturity is the capacity
to face unpleasantness and frustration, discomfort and defeat, without complaint or
collapse. Maturity is humility. It is being big enough to say, “I was wrong.” And
when you’re right, you need not say, “I told you so.” Maturity is the ability to make a
decision and follow through. The immature spend their lives exploring endless
possibilities and then do nothing. And, based on the Serenity Prayer, Maturity is the art
of living in peace with what we cannot change, the courage to change what we know
should be changed, and the wisdom to know the difference.
