16 Relatable Things About Going Through Puberty

puberty

Puberty was a pretty tough time for a lot of people. Your hormones are getting speeding tickets to the wall, same goes for your body hair and… well, certain other parts I’m not allowed to comment on. And out of those “a lot of people”, a lot of them will remember puberty as either one of the absolute worst or best periods of their life.

No matter what it is, there are quite a few things that anyone who went through puberty will remember, and here are a few.

1. Getting glasses

Before glasses were cool, like they are nowadays, we all dreaded the day when we had to go to the doctor and we got told that we need to wear glasses.

3. Brace yourself, world!

Most of us were unlucky enough to be born with messy teeth, which is why we needed to go through the nightmare that was braces. Imagine all the ruined days of sharing popcorn with your crush at the cinema, or pizza at a slumber party.

4. Skin care

Puberty in most cases means acne, and lots of it. Our faces become a mess, and we would just end up spending a ton of cash to fix the messy areas.

5. Soul-sucking school pictures

They would always turn out worse than what we wanted, ultimately leading to hating ourselves after seeing the final picture.

7. Blooming really early or really late

In puberty, you either get your boobs at like 12, or you have to wait until the very end until they grow, and even when they do, they might stay small.

8. Finding an old picture of yourself and shuddering

“Mom, is this really me? You’re kidding, right?” I can just imagine how many kids have said this sentence after seeing old pictures of themselves.
