Maturity is something that becomes more important with age but not everyone progresses at the same pace. There is no doubt that we all have periods in our lives where we act a little immature, but some people are always more immature than those around them.
Naturally mature people are sometimes said to be “old souls” and it is something they just possess without even knowing. Hardships in life are sometimes the reason people mature quicker than others as well. Truly, there is no right or wrong answer, it’s just one of those things that everyone does at their own pace.
