We all have photos of our younger selves that we’d probably prefer others didn’t see. However sometimes it’s easier just to come out and show everyone rather than keep them hidden only to be found out anyway.
These people decided to brave the cruel waters of the Internet and share some of the most cringe-worthy shots from their childhoods and youth days.
We’ve compiled a list of best throwback photographs for the ultimate cringe effect. From odd hairstyles and accessories to questionable fashion choices, the list contains each person’s bump (or perhaps even a trainwreck) on the road of searching for identity.
Scroll down to check them all out and don’t forget to vote and comment on your favorites!
