Sometimesaccepting something one doesn’t believe in can lead to growth and maturity.These can be seen in the changes of our views on teenage moms, homosexuality,and prisoners working.
Teenage moms become mature by accepting theirown circumstances and taking care of their own children. They have to face criticismsfrom society because society views their actions as sins. Because of pressure,teenage moms have to decide the lives of their kids. If they keep theirchildren, they have to take the responsibilities of looking after their kids.Therefore, they accept their pasts and continue on in life with confidence. Ouropen-mindedness towards homosexuality can lead to growth. In the past,homosexual people could not get married, or shared properties. Nowadays,government legalizes homosexual marriage.
This can be seen as the first step ofaccepting them. More and more people change their opinions. They no longer seethem as inferior, they see them as the same as heterosexuals. Changingour opinions on prisoners working can make us mature. We used to see prisonersas dangerous people and wouldn’t let them work because they committed crimes.However, having prisoners work benefits society because it reduces taxes andprisoners can generate their own costs in prisons.
Society grows because it nolonger sees prisoners as people who can only use brutal force and cunningness. Itsees prisoners as people who can better our lives . To conclude, changing our opinions on homosexuality,teenage moms, and prisoner workings can make a great difference. It not onlymakes us grow, it also helps our society matures.
