The Top Things We Were Self-Conscious About in High School Are Still Our Top Concerns Now
If your kid is going into their junior or senior year, be aware . . . they could be hitting peak AWKWARDNESS.
A new poll asked adults how old they were when they felt the most awkward. The average answer was 17.
Two-thirds of adults said they still have moments when they feel just as awkward as they did back then. And it turns out we're still worried about a lot of the same things.
People were asked to name the top things they were self-conscious about as teens, and the top things they're self-conscious about now.
The top three things we worried about in high school were our weight . . . our hair . . . and our teeth. And those are STILL the top things we're self-conscious about.
Other things we still worry about include our height . . . our posture . . . our voice . . . our glasses . . . and yep, acne too.
