- Advertisement -

Emotional maturity is the hallmark in thriving healthy relationships. The world isn’t all black or all white, understanding this makes life less of a battle and more of a journey. Emotional maturity is the ability to manage emotions. An emotionally mature person understands who he/she is and takes accountability for their actions. They do not project or blame others for their issues but actively seek to change their own behavior or response to the issue.

Emotional maturity and Emotional intelligence are interconnected and are key factors in maintaining healthy relationships. Emotionally mature individuals are in touch with their emotions and are able to articulate them.
