I think I've outgrown you.

(fabsugar)  I pray that I will never outgrow my love for black or Mary Kates styles 

Today I received an unexpected text message from an ex boyfriend. There were a few bland texts back and forth when the question I knew was coming flashed up “Do you want to catch up?” In my head I was thinking “NO WAY”. That day has come and gone. I like to believe that I have outgrown that stage of my life. I like to believe that I have lived and learned and if I have learned anything it is that sometimes you should leave the past in the past.

Having contact with an old flame who I have clearly outgrown got me thinking. What else will I outgrow?  Will I ever outgrow my obsession for lip-gloss? Will I ever outgrow sleeping with a teddy bear? Will I ever outgrow drawing love hearts and stars on my fogged up shower door? What about singing in front of the mirror, will I ever outgrow that? Will I outgrow my best friends? I hope not. Will I outgrow burping in front of my mum just to get a reaction? (Yes that sounds gross but her reaction cracks me up). Will I outgrow cracking my fingers? Will I outgrow my love affair with black clothes? Will I outgrow being scared of ghosts? Will I outgrow listening to the same song over and over again? Will I ever outgrow feeling awkward in short skirts?

There will be times where we will all outgrow something that we once loved. Whether it be a style, a boyfriend or an eccentric trait. I guess what I like most about outgrowing something is seeing that I have grown as a person. I may never outgrow certain quirks that I have and I know 100% that I will never outgrow acting silly. What I do know is that those things we once loved are a part of our past, we can’t change them, we can only appreciate them for what they were and pray to god we have more sense in the future!

  6. It's amazing what we outgrow - and also the things we don't :)

    There's always a reason why people from your past didn't make it to your future. You never have room for the new if your life is cluttered with the old.

    Your blog is gorgeous! x

  7. the bet thing about outgrowing something is growing into something else :)

  8. Good for you for having that realization and not getting dragged back in to something that was ended for a reason. Mary Kate looking F A B by the way!

  9. I enoyed reading this. Outgrowing something is a sign of personal development and something to be proud of. It's moving forward, and not looking back.
