What was your most embarrassing teenage period?

10 teenage stages you would love to forget (but unfortunately there are photos)!

As a teenager you live on another planet. The hormones simply shoot you into orbit, at best you can see your parents with a telescope somewhere in the distance. In our teenage years, it was simply the greatest need for us to catapult ourselves away from our parents' home, to become independent. This is actually worth all honors and a necessary process. If, however, there is also teenage arrogance and this feeling that you are the center of the world and you know better and better - then this is the best breeding ground for failures!

That was twice as true for children of the 80s and 90s. Because both decades were full of fashionable and stylistic faux pas. In defense of our teenage selves, we couldn't identify some of it as weird and abnormal at the time, because everyone did it.

Today we are happy to remind you of those phases you would love to cover up in silence: Here are 10 embarrassing things everyone did as a teenager!

# 6 When you were obsessed with anime

“I was totally obsessed with anime and even took the name of a character for two years. Even my teachers had to call me that and I signed my anime names.
