Immaturity is Bliss!!

You grow up listening to things like "it's just the infants and the kids who've got innocence...and we've lost it".
I myself had written some lines titled "lost childhood" long back. Whenever people around told me to be mature, responsible, "you're no more a kid" and many more such things I used to argue for hours. Well I always believed and said that being mature was like losing the innocence, the purity and all and all. Or may be it was just to shut the mouths of those who didn't like my "immature " ways.

When you know a person very closely...and start excusing their mistakes you find then being wanting to be free....free from the bondage of "maturity". Haven't you ever felt that someone close to you who you think is very mature, responsible...is actually bound by the pressures of the society? Many of their  actions are because they're very much bothered about what others will think.

There's this friend of mine who I think is very mature and never says anything stupid in front of others or makes a fool out of herself. What I actually noticed is that she can't take criticism at all so she tries to do the best in every field...ain't this slavery actually?

Are you scared? Are you a slave of appreciation?
Mistakes are something only courageous people can do. I guess so.
Immaturity is bliss!
Don't be scared to tell the world that the way you approach the world is your way the best WaY!!!

"someone close to you who you think is very mature, responsible...is actually bound by the pressures of the society? Many of their actions are because they're very much bothered about what others will think." - I can't disagree.

Hi Priya,

Wow... an interesting post you penned! :-)

I could feel the bliss of such immaturity and I am enjoying it...after all, no one is perfect and we're not here to please all!

Happy Diwali my dear! You must be so busy lately! Missed you...

It is a thought provoking post,Priya.I simply loved it.The picture that we present when we are in society shackled by social norms and the true self we are when we are alone unfettered by any restrictions are vastly different.We have two faces, each one of us
Innocence has many connotations-of being free from guilt,free from wrong or simply being ignorant of happenings or not being aware of.Loss of innocence is not wrong per se and immaturity is also no bliss always.
Thank you for the wonderful piece.

I don't know how "maturity" is defined, but I feel intelligence and innocence is all that is needed to live a cool life! :)

Immaturity is Bliss - I don't agree with your point. It stupidest statement I ever seen and even being supported by many people. You can't stop from growing old even if you thinking your are still same as last year. Change is part of life learn from the change. As a human being as you grow old at least don't justify your-self by telling Immaturity is Bliss.

loved the article yeah one shud be SELF for if we try to change sooner or later it come out and in my experience it comes out the wrong way ...

we all have a child in us , and hence we all have that innocense in all of us, maturity has just made us see things in a different way ...

but i also beleive that a little bit of appreciation takes one a long long way ..

Agreeing to whatever you have said. It's purely the pressure from the society that makes a person to be mature in all ways. I don't think thats necessary
