Age = Wisdom???, Age = Maturity???? Age Exact what does it equal?

When you are a child you are told to trust your elders, because they are wise, and when your a child you are told that "Maturity" comes with age..  OK so yes physical maturity comes with age, but from my point a of view that's about it.

People seldom change from High School, once a bully always a bully, once a superior attitude always that attitude.

Lets just say that my daughter is having a tough time in college, she attends classes as night, and supposedly the students are more mature..   Not from where I am standing.

I have to stand back and let her sink or swim on her own,  but I don't like when others do the sinking for her.

For god sake people truly grow up, the words you say out of frustration can be more hurtful and harmful to someone than if you took a knife to them, emotional scars take much longer to heal, and sometimes never do.

The first time someone you think is a friend betrays a trust is a terrible thing, but when it is repeated, the consequences are seldom thought about.

No she has never done drugs, smoked or drank, she has not slept around, she is basically a good kid, and being taunted for that is nonsense. Life experience is more than just sex, drugs and drink.

You are all at the college to learn and improve on your skills, because someone is slower than you  doesn't mean they don't belong, perhaps it means they are nervous or have never done this before.

Where these people always so perfect at everything they did? Was there never a time they felt shy, awkward, out of place or overwhelmed by a task? Was there a time where they were discouraged by the very team that was meant to support them??

Remember what that felt like, remember that no matter how hard parent or other relative tried to show you how good you are, it just didn't matter because a group told you otherwise.

Imagine the pain you caused, oh wait you can't because you don't care, if you did, you would have helped instead of making hurtful remarks.

Life is not always easy, and if this class is easy for you I am sure there will be things in the future that will not be. I only hope that someone will be there JUST LIKE YOU to make you feel like you made daughter feel.
