Good vs. Evil: Maturity vs. Immaturity

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." —Edmund Burke

Evil always comes from immaturity. And good from maturity.

And with evil you will always lack, but with good you will be fulfilled.

So what does it mean to be mature or immature?

Maturity means directly communicating to people what you want and telling people how you feel, being assertive and fighting for what you believe in, not keeping secrets, taking care of your problems right away no matter how small and diligently working towards your dreams daily, reacting to red flags and green flags, surrounding yourself with good people and positive things, taking the time to figure out why something happened and how to improve it, having a vision/destination in life, trusting your instincts, creating change right away without hesitation, asking for help, seeking connections with others, taking action, and, thus, being happy.

Immaturity means bad and indirect communication and not telling people how you feel, passive aggressiveness or putting up with bad behavior, keeping secrets, using escapism and excuses to avoid your problems until they get too big to ignore and not pursuing your dreams daily, ignoring red flags and green flags, not cutting out the bad people in your life, not using logical, critical thinking for your problems, drifting in life, mindlessly rationalizing all of your decisions (like staying at a job you hate), sticking to old habits to put off change, going it alone, pursuing sex and money, doing nothing, and, thus, being frustrated in life.

Which path do you follow?

P.S. So how do you work on becoming mature? Simple, you take action and figure it out along the way. Don't be a bystander in your own life. Do something.
