Identify and work on your feelings
It is very important to identify and accept your feelings to move away from them. You cannot be happy by holding grudges against someone, so just acknowledge them and work towards it.
Emotional maturity is when you stop judging others for their personal preferences. You become broad-minded and welcome new thoughts. Talking to people is not that difficult for an emotionally matured person.
Own your mistakes
Sometimes there are situations where you lie or do something wrong that the other person won’t accept. An emotionally matured person owns up to their mistakes and then only you can give some solution to that.
Dramatic overreaction is not required
Maturity is when you handle a situation and try to deal with that instead of overreacting to it. Some reactions can lead to some worst situations. You become confident enough to bring a solution to the table instead of overreacting.
