Are You Mature?

I am able to respond to all things with wisdom and love.
I am responsible for my self and my life.
I appreciate being mature in my thoughts, words and actions.
I am healthy, happy and free as I live in integrity.

Do you act responsibly?
Do you take care of your home and bills?
Do you care for your body and health?
Do you treat your loved ones with respect?

Using inappropriate language is not mature.
Taking advantage of others is not mature.
Blaming, shaming and denigrating others is not mature.
Doing harm to yourself and others is not mature.

Neglecting to apologize for mistakes is not mature.
Forgetting please and thank you is not mature.
Fighting and arguing to win is not mature.
Taking advantage of others is not mature.

Lying, cheating and stealing is not mature.
Neglecting your home, your health, your  responsibilities in immature.
Whining, demanding and threatening is immature.
Talking to others like a willful child is not mature.

So what is mature?
Do you want to be responsible?
Do you trust, love and respect yourself?
Do you live, love and give freedom and trust?

Are you able to manage your bills effectively?
Do you clean and maintain your home with appreciation?
Do you take time to actively appreciate your loved ones?
Do you manage your emotions privately without dumping on others?

Do you still depend on you parents or friends for advice?
Do you still seek others approval and agreement?
Are you confident about how you look and behave?
Are you content with your relationships and lifestyle?

Immature people are often lazy and irresponsible.
Immature people assume others will take care of them.
Immature people may want to stay dependent on others.
Immature people may ignore their moral and ethical code.

If you are willing, it is time to grow up.
If you are supporting an immature person, it is time for a wakeup call.
People tend to stay dependent and immature because they are comfortable.
Codependent people may keep others dependent to get someone to need them.

Consider setting yourself free from all dependency, except on the Highest Good.
Loving all, as we mature in wisdom, caring and responsibility.
