What 'phase' did you go through that makes you cringe?

I was pretty bitchy when I was 10 or 11, according to my mother.

Almost all of my childhood years were cringe worthy considering how edgy I tried to be. Aha.

I remember being pretty obsessed with with my crush a few years ago in high school.
I was also probably one of the most annoying children ever. I think I would probably hate my childhood self.

The weeb phase. Ugh god I was such a lame moron, I remember in 7th grade I started teaching myself Japanese and then acted like I knew the language because I would be so damn flashy in front of everyone and would "study" my kana instead of actually doing my work. I also made everything think that "I enjoy reading books and listening to alternative rock" when in reality it was just manga and youtube rips of anime OPs.

I wish I could go back and kick myself.

2008-2010: tryhard, horrid emo phase, the edgiest of edges, truly legendary in its lengths of millennial angst

2011-2013: "zoMG guise i am soooo random!11!" phase. i was still immature as f. had a lot of cultivating, growing, and generalized hoops to leap through.

2013-2014: tumblr brat phase. brought about mostly by the site's increasingly toxic culture, i became a phenomenally bland labelwhore in a sea of equally bland, pretending special snowflake labelwhores, branding myself as some anomaly untouched by any cis white man when i was in fact, just a mentally askew teenage girl misguided by her fee fees. moreover, the fascination with sjw politics further plummeted me into thoughts of preposterous hatred and violence.

the third was honestly the worst in the grand scheme, at least the other two were primarily dictated by hormones rather than refusal to confront my very obvious issues & brain imbalances, i don't care if it was a coping mechanism, i would never revert to, never inhale such harmfully nauseous fumes again if it means i never had to feel like i did back in mid 2014.

I'm right now in "late-bloomer trying to settle into the rhythms of adult life" phase. It's not so bad, and when it's over, it'll be the next thing, like having kids or being workaholic.

I also had many phases I went through, some I will never tell anybody. I think when I'm really over the bad habits I once had, I never feel like sharing them, even randomly on a discussion board. But thinking about them occasionally and asking how the person I am now measures up to a mental picture I have of myself is part of daily living.

Sadly, the emo phase. The even sadder part was that I was not even good at dressing or looking emo and I was so young that I was trying to explain to my mom the appeal of all black clothes but she wouldn't even let me buy them haha~

In middle school I was extremely awkward around girls. I was a good lookin' dude and in shape since I was into karate. A lot of girls thought I was cute but I avoided them and brushed them aside anytime a girl would confess their crush on me. I could've been a stud. Even my first year of High School a few girls asked me out but I was still a bit awkward. I broke out of that shell once I got my first job and started socializing more with the opposite sex.

Looking back on it now I'm thinking "WTF was wrong with me.?"

Ahhh, to be young and brainless.


I relate to this post more than you could ever know, this was me in early high school lol, i was good looking and had girls confess to me often, but couldn't capitalize on these opportunities since i didn't know how to talk to girls, ended up avoiding them lmao , i cringe at the missed opportunities

I'd like to think we're better people because we regressed those primal urges. But no, I was just a socially awkward fool.

At least college was fun. I grew a spine by then.
