Age has nothing to do with maturity.
Sometimes emotions flare and people respond to harshly. Once they realize they acted out of character, reality sets it and then they enter a period of remorse. They say that love is blind in regards to it’s occupant but love is not foolish. Love is compassion. When you operate in compassion, you’ll be mindful of the words you allow to exit your mouth. A child whines and pouts when they don’t get their way. Which can be labeled as an emotions cry of selfishness. Sometimes…in some cases…that emotion cry slips over into adulthood.
He that can control his citizens(emotions), will rule his city(body)
