We all had a period during our childhood when we thought we were just the coolest. Whether it was a rad new haircut or snazzy new pair of jeans, there was always something awesome that made us feel unbeatable.

However, not everything ages well—and that’s why looking at old photos of yourself can sometimes make you cringe. As times change, so does style and fashion, and it can make past memories feel like horrible choices (even if they were SO RIGHT in the moment).

Thanks to one TikToker, people are going down memory lane to share their most embarrassing moments and styles from their childhood. The TikToker, with the handle @mally_a has posted a now-viral video featuring photos of herself at 6 years old having a photo shoot, explaining that thought she was “the main character.”

With more than d 5.5M views, a new video trend on social media was born where people are posting some of the most embarrassing pictures. And let us tell you: They’re pure gold.
