It is not unusual to meet a 40 year-old who doesn’t act their age. Actually, maturity isn’t a thing of age. You could find a person who is in their early 20s doing things a 50-year-old won’t do. But to enjoy the benefits of your being and soul, you have to act wisely. Here are 15 signs you are now an adult and have reached maturity.

You have the patient to wait
You are willing to wait for good things to come. It is all about your positive vibes since you are sure of exciting outcomes.
You can let go
You don’t have to take things too seriously. Sometimes things will work out. Sometimes it won’t, but you are willing to move on if you have to.

You do not compare yourself with others
This is a strenuous exercise. Your only competition should be who you were yesterday. Comparing yourself with others is an ill exercise.
You are only willing to take calculated risks
You miss some and you win some. Risks are not really risks when you focus on what you’re learning in the course of a challenge. But it doesn’t mean you simply take risks for risks sake. You don’t need to be gambling with your actions, so as you grow older and become matured you are more careful about those risks you take.
You value the right relationships
Suddenly you swing to more qualitative relationships. You don’t get into relationships because you feel the need to join the crowd, it now means something more to you. You want to be more complimented and validated in a relationship. Even if you have to be more selective about your associations, you understand why it is so worth it.
It is no more about simply having a good time
Yes, you want to have a good time and perhaps get lost in the moment. But you understand that there is more to life than binge-drinking and partying all through the weekend. Yes this could be so cool in your teens or early twenties, however you are willing to retain a fuller and more rounded perspective of life. There is nothing wrong in traveling to a new city spending your time in solitude.
You value your body
You value your health and what your body does for you. You know your body is your tool for getting the happiness and success you seek, so why not maintain or look after it. You are careful with how you treat your body or well-being.
