Ugly Duckling Syndrome: Before and After

One way or another, the vast majority of people reading this will have gone through a period of ugly duckling syndrome. This horrible stage usually appears in pre-adolescence or adolescence as a product of a hormonal revolution.

Ugly duckling before and after

Sometimes, with a total lack of synchrony with our body; changes in the voice, changes in facial features, the appearance of hair, breast growth, etc. In general, a rather atrocious change that causes us astonishment and denial for recognizing who we have in front of the mirror.

At this stage it is quite common for us to be disappointed with our image, height, skin, hair, body shape and the most common of all: breasts (for girls) and penis size (for men). This disorder usually decreases with age, although sometimes it can remain until adulthood and sometimes fall into body dysmorphic disorder, a psychological malady mostly frequent among young people of the upper class, with few or no physical defects, influenced by the media and the high and false standards of beauty today. and who suffer from an erroneous or exaggerated perception of imperceptible or imaginary physical defects.

Adolescence is really a complicated age: we begin to want to be masters of our own lives, but for parents we don’t think of simple children and nothing else counts, the body changes, pimples emerge on the face, hair grows on the hand… In short, almost everyone has some kind of negative reference to this ugly duckling phase that they want to erase from memory.

Many photo albums have been incinerated for these reasons, but there are others that, instead of hiding their photos and trying to forget about them, share and laugh at their old appearance. Redditer Lilyrose1024 was probably thinking the same thing when she posted one on Reddit: “People with “Ugly Duckling Syndrome”: What Are Your Best Before and After Puberty Photos?”

The answer to this question asked at the beginning of the year resulted in 17,000 comments and hundreds of photographs. And believe it or not, most of the changes are quite impressive as we can see in this collection:
