An ex girlfriend of mine once went to a psychic. She was asked to take photos with her of the most important people in her life. Clearly, I featured in this and the psychic saw my photo and was happy to tell the then girlfriend about what she could expect from me.
The almost verbatim quote is “He’s good for you but he’s Peter Pan, he’ll never grow up”
When I heard this, I thought it was incredibly harsh. I was 24 at the time, I had a girlfriend who I loved but I also saw my friends regularly, I enjoyed a night out, with and without her, where was this coming from?
How could someone know that from one photo? I’m sceptical about the whole psychic/horoscope thing, I can’t see how anyone can guess what is in someone’s future. That said, I understand that a lot of people put a lot of faith and trust in it and I massively respect that.
How amusing is irony though? Fast forward to years later. I live on my own in a flat that I love. I have a massive television. I have music pictures on the wall. I have foreign movie posters adorning my hallway. I have a video games console. I have a MacBook. I have separate wardrobes for work clothes and casual clothes. I have bookcases on every single wall. Christ, I even have a trouserpress, it is clearly a boy pad.
More and more, I’ve thought about that day and how maybe what that psychic predicted was going to be true.
Newsflash, not true. I’ve changed my thinking and some of these things will be no more. It’s time to grow up and evolve and I’m looking to share my life with a girl who has become my best friend. Scary times, yet exciting at the same time. Holidays, house hunting, every day is an adventure.
I just want you to know.
