He did>he might have been happier
You just said he didn't degrade> but he is more mature by the end of the finale
Being hopeless, dull, disinterested and demoralized isn't mature, that's called depression.
Finn was more emotionally stable earlier on, he was more committed, he was more proactive, he was more responsible, he was more competent, he took joy in performing his duties, those are the things that make someone mature, and he had it in strides earlier in the show.
Becoming a worse or unhappy person can be a very engaging story and the fact that Finn is in every way a lesser person at the end of the series is not inherently a bad thing, shows like Breaking Bad do it decently (not amazing but decent). But pretending that Finn had somehow become better at the end of the series is fucking disingenuous and you know it.
Boom Boom Mountain is the most mature we've ever seen Finn, dedicated to a life long principle in service of others, a duty that he holds sacred to himself and true to his word he spends the entire episode, at great stress to himself, trying to keep, he exhaust himself and his wits to do what he has to do for no gain, or glory far past the point a normal person would give up. That's not just mature, that is the most honorable, and laudable act he could have taken.
This doesn't even mention all the other displays of moral fortitude Finn had in the first few seasons.
Of course, Finn was flawed, you'd see that in the businessmen episode as he begins delegating away with very little oversight into their actions but even by the end of the episode he realizes his mistake and immediately tries to correct it, because that was the right thing to do.
Never fucking forget pic relatedFuck Beginning of the End for trying to lessen the impact of Billy's last words to Finn
