Everyone desires to be respected among others. However, we need to have what it takes to be respected by people.
One of the first attributes that some people observe in us before giving us respect is maturity.
It's a character that cannot be hidden. It's a personality that is not determined by age. It comes with experience and the accumulation of moral knowledge.
How do we show people that we are mature enough to be respected?

The more mature you are, the more you understand that it's better to walk away from issues that will not benefit you in any way.
