We live in a highly critical society where everyone is competing to be someone and everyone wants to be powerful or influential.
We measure our successes in comparison to other people’s achievements without realizing that it is unfair to do so. You are your biggest competitor because only you know the resources you have and how much you can do with that. Sometimes people forget to pat their backs and just be happy for how far they have come. In case you’re wondering if you’re successful here are signs you’re on the right path.
1. You don’t have relationship drama anymore.
Because you’re mature you choose to pick your battles wisely. You don’t engage in petty conversations and don’t entertain the embarrassment of dramatic relationships.
2. You can ask for help instead of pretending you’re okay.
Acknowledging that you need help means you’re growing up, this doesn’t mean you become someone’s problem but it means you’re able to learn from others and grow.
3. You don’t tolerate nonsense anymore.
