Life is about growing and changing, and sometimes, those transformations can come as a surprise. For better or for worse, many people experience a total personality 180, whether it's because of remorse, coping mechanisms, or new relationship. People can change their lives, and people's lives can change them.
A recent Reddit thread asked, "Have you ever known anyone who has changed from who they were to practically a different person?" It's full of glow-ups, downfalls, and relationships making people basic.
1. From meek to Marine.
Kid in middle school. Super scrawny and short.
I always tried to talk to him and hang out with him because he was always alone. He always geeked out about ants and caterpillars and I learned a lot about that stuff from him. He got bullied RELENTLESSLY. During recess when everyone was running around playing tag or basketball or whatever, he'd be off to the side by the grassy area, looking at the insects and collecting things. People always shoved him into the mud or purposely kicked the soccer ball at him.
He never fought back. Kept doing his thing. Super quiet.
We went to different high schools so I completely lost touch with him.
