I don’t know about you, but I went through a awkward phase. I think it lasted a couple of years and I spent a lot of time not feeling good about myself because of it.
Now I look back at those pictures and I think, “Dude, what was I worried about. Everyone went through that phase. My whole yearbook proves it!”
So I think this Awkward Years Project is really cool. It was created by Merilee Allred who explained it this way:
Remember the years between being a cute kid to the awesome person you are today? I’m talking about your awkward years. You know, the braces, zits, big glasses, and victims of terrible fashion? I want to share a collection of people sharing their most awkward years and show how great of people they turned out to be. To all the nerds, geeks, and fashion victims, past or present, this project is for you!
Good for you, Merilee 😉
Check out more photos after the break and maybe you’ll even submit one of your own someday.
