outgrow anxiety?

I have heard that the body and mind change every seven years. If this is true and one has depression/anxiety, will you outgrow it after 7 years?

NO, this is a myth. Some of us change our minds much more frequently, and some politicians seem never to change theirs, unfortunately ! The body generally renews itself all the time, different parts of it doing so at different speeds, and not always consistently ( thus the flakes of dry skin that fall off us, replaced by fresh skin cells deeper in the skin, for instance ). And the mind is capable of continued growth throughout life.
So you can potentially "outgrow" depression at any time, without needing to wait 7 years.
