10 immature things you should really stop doing once you’re 25

Most of us still don’t behave our age by the time we’re 25 but who’s to say what we should and shouldn’t do? Because it’s our life and we’re old enough to do whatever we please, right?

Well, of course. However, there are certain things that we shouldn’t or should stop doing especially by the time we’re 25 because honestly, they’re not helping much and they’re pretty immature when you really think about it. So here’s 10 immature things you should really stop doing once you’re 25! 

Whining about how your life sucks
Whining and complaining won’t help your life suck any less nor will it make you a better person. In fact, it blinds you from being grateful for what you already have. If you’re unhappy, do something about it! You can start by not complaining about life. At all. It will make your life better, trust me.

Pointing fingers
Ah, you’re always pointing fingers at others when things aren’t going well for you. Blaming other people for your problems is not only immature, it’s a cowardly habit. It’s time you grow up and take responsibility for your own actions. Life’s going to throw punches at you and you need to take it like a man (or woman).

Leaving empty bottle jugs in the fridge
If you still have a habit of doing this, you should really be ashamed of yourself. Like, why? That also includes leaving your dirty dishes in the sink for someone else to clean up. It might sound minute, but when you’re used to other people cleaning up after you, chances are you won’t have much opportunity to grow. 

Expecting other people to take care of you
If you’re both mentally and physically able, yet still think that it’s your parents’ job to clean up after you and put food on the table, or expect your boyfriend/girlfriend to wait on you hand and foot, you might as well be disabled. I mean, there are those who are disabled and still capable of being independent.

Always expecting someone else to get the bill
Being a free-loader all the time isn’t just annoying, it’s absolutely unattractive. You’re 25, for goodness sake not a 5 year old kid. Insisting to pay for lunch or chipping in isn’t going to kill you. In fact, it makes you get invited to more lunches.

Keeping the gifts your ex(s) gave you
An act of hoarding you really must stop. You can say that it means nothing and that you just want to keep it, but I detect an emotional attachment still, which is very unhealthy for you. I know break-ups are difficult but don’t self-inflict pain on yourself when you know you’re better off without.

Stalking your ex(s)
Why do you dwell on someone who chose to no longer be a part of your life? Or someone you yourself chose to leave? It doesn’t make any sense. One, because you’re no longer in each other’s life: move on. Two, because it’s creepy: don’t be a creep.

Posting personal things about yourself on social media
This pandemic has to stop or our entire generation will be the joke of all humanity. People don’t need to know the drama between you and your significant other, or that you’re constipated, or that you’re sitting on the toilet right now taking a dump. TMI! Have you ever heard about a diary or journal? Use that.

Bad-Mouthing about other people
Also gossiping. It’s time you start focusing on what’s happening in your life and think of ways you can contribute to all of humanity instead of spreading nasty rumours about other people. Start with the man (or woman) in the mirror.

Caring what other people think about you
You get anxious and worried most of the time because of this. I can assure you this, most of the time, people don’t actually care and you shouldn’t too. How are you going to grow up and be the person you are meant to be if you’re always worrying about what other people think? It’s your life and you’re entitled to live it however you want.
