People Don’t Always Grow Up, They Just Get Older

“maturity does not accompany age. Sometimes age comes alone”

John Maxwell

How many times have you met someone from high school and thought “wow, they haven’t changed a bit”? Sometimes that thought is a compliment, sometimes not. One thing I have concluded is that most people who were jerks in high school, are still jerks. Aging is a process of chronology not necessarily of growth. We will always age but we may never grow.

Do yourself a favor. Read the great self help books. Start with Dale Carnagie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People . Maybe move on to some Steven Covey or John Maxwell. It is important that we work on growing up as we grow old.
