Everybody moves through things at a different pace, too. I wouldn’t worry about it. I had a few close calls with imminent demise and experienced some losses that really shattered my perspective on a lot of things and I’ve had to rebuild them. The result is kind of a mixed bag because in some areas I feel like I am ahead of the curb, but because of that I am also alienated from my peers. Instead I am much more at home talking with people almost ten years my elder and it is sort of strange to see them as love interests, for example. (Not that I am trying to market myself as “ultra-mature” or something silly like that, I don’t particularly think myself better than others — just on a different trajectory)
My point is that sometimes rushing things isn’t a good idea. It isn’t bad to take time to enjoy whatever “stage” you’re at in your life because growing up — and growing up is a lifelong experience — is something you only do once and it will be different day by day. I know I feel like I have a lot of “lost years” because I was tirelessly trying to accomplish some illusion of “adulthood” when, in reality, young adulthood is the same as being a teenager except with more responsibility and opportunities to fail.
Long reply short, I’m unsure of your age, but I don’t think it is always good to try and rushing development. That said, I also know it can be difficult to settle into your current condition — obviously that is sort of what my issue is. So I guess take my advice with a grain of salt :p
Thank you for the best wishes, too :) And I wish them to you as well.
