Good Morning Beloved!
You have reached maturity when statements or comments no longer illicit a response from you. What used to upset you does not anymore and instead, you try to understand that person’s concerns. You are no longer stressed or frustrated about people. People may not understand why you’re quiet or smile when sarcastic comments are thrown at you, but you know that being quiet makes a difference. Acknowledge the change within yourself and keep moving forward. You may be moving forward alone, but at least you have peace. Sometimes, it’s best to walk alone.
“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.” 1 Corinthians 13:11 ESV
