19 People Who Didn’t Give Up on Themselves, and Their Lives Changed Terrifically

5 years ago

Almost every person doesn’t like their appearance at a certain age. Sometimes, people look funny or a little awkward. Some people get really unlucky: others laugh at them and it’s a real challenge. But time often transforms people beyond recognition.

Internet users shared their “before” and “after” pictures to prove that appearance changes with age. Bright Side is amazed by these transformations. Some of the people don’t even look like the same person.

“17 to 22. My hair doesn’t look like a bad wig anymore.”

“14 to 23. It’s been an awkward decade for me.”

“17 to 22. I don’t even look like the same person anymore.”

“Age 11 to 20. I owe a lot to contacts, braces, filling in my eyebrows, and my hairline somehow growing forward.”

“Lost 50kg (110lbs) in 18 months after a rugby injury, started rowing for my university.”

“I stopped drinking and here is the result.”

“16 to 23. I was a t-shirt, baggy jeans, and scowl face kind of girl. My mom saved a lot of beautiful clothing for me.”

“From 18 to 23. Who knew a jawline could be hidden under all of that?”

“4th grade me & 22-year-old me. The photographer even made me push my glasses up because I liked to wear them on the tip of my nose.”

“12 and 22. Grew into my chin... and my ears... and pretty much my whole face.”
