I have decided not to waste time in attending meetings in which I have little role , but to concentrate more time on my writings which can give me eternal bliss and social reputation. Do you often get intrigued with how your friends or people you know, handle some situations away from how you predicted they would work on it?
Maybe, you expected them to react or respond immediately to your actions- whether bad or good towards them, instead they kept quiet about it and decided to reflect on it. This is an example of emotional maturity.
Emotional immaturity is often observed in an individual when they respond inappropriately to situations because of lack of discipline and inability to reflect on issues arising before making decisions. According to theories of psychology, emotional maturity is responding appropriately and coping with circumstances present.We might develop emotions within ourselves as a reaction to circumstances occurring at that time but are we mature enough to handle emotions like anger, frustration, love, kindness, rage, fear, etc. ? We should think about this aspect before our emotional outbursts.
We don’t have maturity of mind or thinking, forget about emotional maturity, for we behave learned with very little knowledge. In fact we confuse information as knowledge and the person on a big position is often considered /treated as knowledgeable .
In Europe, Britishers were at one point of time, having a great empire. But, Germans were learned and French people had emotional maturity. In our country,Bengalis have emotional maturity as I personally think.
We often keep on thinking, ‘what am I going to wear, eat, do….? ‘ etc. Necessary thoughts are at times disturbing . When these thoughts become repetitive, they not only become unnecessary but also clutter our mind and drain our energy.
We should think about necessary matters when it’s necessary. And when these thoughts start to become repetitive, let us acknowledge them and tell our mind calmly , ‘ I have already thought this enough , it’s finished, it’s done.’
A lot of problems in this world will disappear if everyone learns to talk to each other, instead of talking about each other.
Killing an innocent boy, son of a scribe shows the failure of the system. In fact, this is indirectly an attack on the press and we, those in media practice, should stand with Navin in this situation. To do a commercial film is easy and to do an art film is difficult. Same is the case with everything on earth in this life ! Choice is ours…
