What did you outgrow in 2015?

I'm not sure if we really "outgrow" any habits or hobbies or objects, etc. age wise, but every year I can look back and think, nope, I likely won't repeat that mistake. I also "outgrow" beliefs and passions.

Here's my list of things I feel I've left behind after my 2015 personal growth spurt:

Giving literally any f*cks about arguing with people in my life. They have an opinion, I have an opinion, I respect that. I've worked through most insecurities and I just don't get riled up like I once did. I still have an opinion; but, My field of f*cks is now barren, as they say.

Wondering if people "like" me. They might, they might not, it's not my business.

I've resigned myself to the understanding that, as a creative person, I will never find a "normal" job that I love and want to go to everyday. It's an inherent personality trait that I will never outgrow. My pet peeve will always be people who open conversations with, "So what do you do?", and then, having no experience with the alternative job market, tell you about everyone they know who are hiring.

Buzzfeed. I can't read Buzzfeed anymore. It's too...PC, it's too silly, it's voice is too...worthless to me.

What about you?

Being indecisive: something I haven't outgrown yet.

There is a brilliant component to what you just said. It's the "it's not my business" part. I've been trying to come to terms with that wisdom. However people see me or think of me, it is none of my business.

Sometimes I try to be funny and it doesn't always work.

I really feel like I woke up one day and it was a non-issue. For a few years I had been struggling with depression, so when I got upset about something I trained myself to ask why it was upsetting me, if my brains answer was "I dont know!", I did my best to laugh it off. After a few years of doing this, I learned to laugh at myself and separate real emotional issues from issues being caused by depression.

I feel like this practice lessened my need for validation, because I'm better able to validate my own feelings and needs.

Yes pretty much this, this has been a tough year for me, but looking back, It's been very productive, I've had a hard time no doubt, but I learnt a lot.
As you state, it's not my business if people like me or not, still have to work a lot on this topic, but I came to realize trying to fit everytime and everywhere is not the way to go, everyone should stand up for themselves and what they believe. Just know who you are, and dont give a single f about what anyone else may think.
