16 people who have blossomed
Sitting upright for the first time, the first steps, the first word – in the early years most people develop at a similar pace and differ little. By puberty at the latest, however, some girls and boys bloom like orchids, while many others lead an awkward shadowy existence and are not particularly attractive or popular.
Here are emotional stories that really inspire you. (Scroll down to the article.)
Fortunately, this fate often has an expiration date. As in the well-known story of the ugly duckling, quite a few wallflowers and couch potatoes overcome their difficult initial phase and later bloom splendidly, so that they can no longer be recognized within a few years. If you are one of the late bloomers yourself and don’t want to believe it, you should look at the following sixteen pictures:
