13 People Share The Things They Were Once Teased For That Now Makes Them Beautiful

Don't listen to the hate.

When we look back on our childhoods, we may have fond memories with friends and families. But there are also those negative moments that are hard to forget, like being teased and bullied at school. But through it all, it's important to remember that we will prevail, no matter what haters may throw our way.

A recent thread from Ask Reddit proves just that; on Friday, user Est92Female posed this question: "What are things you were teased for growing up that make you attractive today?"

Whether we were teased for our looks, our personalities, and beyond, people prove that it's these qualities that make them feel the most beautiful and confident today. 

"My hobbies," one person writes, "namely playing video games, tabletop roleplaying games, and tinkering with stuff. Turns out, being female, nerdy, and capable of fixing things is pretty attractive."

Another person points out that they were teased for having grey hair, but now, it makes them "feel like a wizard," and hey, that's pretty cool if you ask us. 

And finally, one person says that they were teased for trying so hard in school — but, surprise, surprise, it turns out, that pays off too. 

Check out more comments from the thread below and remember: never change who you are, celebrate what makes you different, and know that you're beautiful no matter what.
