Looking at oneself grow

Indications that you might be an adult: You are able to sit down to a meal in a dining hall full of bright young people with whom you have no special desire to converse, nor any special desire to not converse. The hum of a hundred voices and clatter-tinkle of a hundred forks and knives rising and falling, washing over you like a clean rinse.

Indications that you might be regressing: You are able to eat like you are hungry, when you are hungry, with crumbs in your hair, and you can brush them off with no attempt at camouflage, while a dozen people look on.

Indications that you might be progressing: You stop taking people personally, because you accept that they are not yours to take.
