This engaging contemplation of maturity addresses the long neglected topic of what it means to grow up, and provides a hands on guide for skillfully navigating the demands of our adult lives.Growing up happens whether we like it or not, but maturity must be cultivated. Challenged to consider his own sense of maturity while mentoring a group of teenage boys, Fischer began to investigate our preconceptions about what it means to be adult and shows how crucial true maturity is to leading an engaged, fulfilled life.
Taking Our Places details the marks of a mature person and shows how these attributes can help alleviate our suffering and enrich our relationships. Discussing such qualities as awareness, responsibility, humour, acceptance, and humility, Fischer brings a fresh, and at times surprising, new perspective that can turn old ideas on their heads and reinvigorate our understanding of what it means to be mature.
