The #HowDidAgeHitYouChallenge is showing the difference 10 years can make

The years come for us all. Often we don’t notice how they’ve changed us, at least until an internet challenge comes along to remind us. A new viral challenge, the #HowDidAgeHitYouChallenge, has taken over Instagram and Twitter, and it is forcing everyone to remember what they looked like a decade ago.

The trend started on Facebook as the “How Hard Did Aging Hit You?” challenge, according to the New York Daily News, then appears to have migrated to other social platforms.

In most cases, people look markedly better in the more recent photos posted in the #HowDidAgeHitYouChallenge. Many people left awkward phases behind and matured into the beautiful, weird, and wonderful people they are today.

As for the rest of them, well, you’ll have to see for yourself.

On the left I was 23 and on the right I'm 32. I guess I lost my hair, gained some weight, and stopped smiling. Haha #howdidagehityouchallenge

Each and every one of the posts is priceless. Some are hysterical, like the above photo of self-described “dick enthusiast” Hila The Killa’s miraculous transformation into a shark. Many of the others give us a tiny glimpse into other people’s worlds, showing hints to the journeys they have taken through the years.

2007 vs 2018 – #howdidagehityouchallenge – from my first FB profile pic till now… on the surface, Black don’t crack and I’m thankful, but age has hit me in ways you can’t see in this photo. A prime example of how much growth happens behind the scenes. Never confuse the highlight reel with what’s actually real. #staytuned

There are also those that don’t appear to have changed at all. Seriously, what kind of moisturizer do these people use?

#howdidagehityouchallenge #howdidaginghityouchallenge 17 years vs. 29 years. Well. I learned how to do makeup and filters were invented. I also turned upside down and got some hair. And a cat.
