    So back when I was young I was all like "I'm such a great person" and now I think how dumb I actually was. So I think right now that I am a decent person but will I look back at myself and think I'm an idiot? I don't like to be philosophical but I just thought this was an interesting concept, so the main question is "Do we all look back on ourselves and think that we weren't good enough?"

    Of course, that's what maturing is. You're obviously going to be a better person than you were a few years ago, save for a few exceptions.

    Ok, I am gonna go full out philosophical, our definition of mature is growing older but what if in toddlers minds they are the mature ones and we are not? What if animals that way about us, that they are the smart ones and are just playing us? (This is all theoretical and I'm bored so don't think I'm crazy ;D).

    Humans are the most intellectual species on Earth, so it's impossible for any animal to be smarter. Animals don't "think" they are smarter than us, simply because they have no established languages, only instinct. A toddler also has no concept of language, so it's impossible for them to "think" they are more mature than someone.
