If there was one thing you could tell your younger self, what would it be? For people in this list they'd probably say, "It gets better!" Check out how puberty did these people right!

At Bright Side we love inspirational stories and learning about how these people were affected by their outer appearance and how they've changed over the years is definitely encouraging. Whether you're 13 or 30 years old, these people prove that there is always a new road ahead.

Fix the hair and get a cat - what a nice message.

This is a puberty win!

Man, who knew Neville will turn out this way?

"Lost 50 kg (110 lbs) in 18 months after a rugby injury, started rowing for my university, and got my MSc in mathematics."

When you're so homely you're kind of cute....maybe.

Gym, self-care, and motivation will do you wonders!

Ages 19 to 21: two years that make all the difference.

"4 years between these photos. I used to really dislike how I looked but slowly I started to treat myself a little nicer. I didn't realize the difference till I saw it like this."

"Grew into my chin... and my ears... and pretty much my whole face (12 yo me vs. 22 yo me)."

"13 and 30. They used to make fun of me for coding. Now I get paid for it!"

"Ages 14-23... it’s been an awkward decade for me."

Ages 15-21: "I was that one kid in high school who still had a roller backpack."

From sundaes to runways; I grew up quite a bit from age 17 to 21.

And for the cherry on top: our favorite Highschool Musical star, Zac Efron!
