I Have Outgrown Many Things

I have outgrown relatives who gladly offer criticism but not support. I have outgrown my need to meet my family’s unrealistic expectations of me. I have outgrown girls who wear masks and secretly rejoice at my misfortunes. I have outgrown shrinking myself for boys who are intimidated by my intelligence and outspoken nature. I have outgrown friends who cannot celebrate my accomplishments. I have outgrown people who conveniently disappear whenever life gets a little dim or dark. I have outgrown those who take pleasure in gossiping and spreading negativity.

I have outgrown dull, and meaningless conversations that feel forced. I have outgrown those who don’t take a stand against ignorance and injustice. I have outgrown society constantly telling me I’m not beautiful, smart or worthy enough. I have outgrown my need to please everyone. I have outgrown my tendency to fill my mind with self-doubt and insecurity. I have outgrown trying to find reasons not to love myself. I have outgrown anything and anyone that does not enrich the essence of my existence and my soul. I have outgrown many things and I have never felt so free.

Thank you for being with me. Let us rebuild a healthy state of mind.

Love, Francesca.
