Acid Attack Survivor's 10-Year Challenge Is Inspiring People All Over The Internet ❤️
@katiepiper_ (Instagram)

The #10YearChallenge has been all the craze since 2019 began. For those of you who don't know, the 10 Year Challenge requires you to post two photos side by side: one from 2009, and one from the current year, 2019. The goal to show people how you've changed in 10 years. One woman's photo participation supersedes them all and is serving as major inspiration.


The #10YearChallenge came at a perfect time for Katie Piper to reflect on how far she's come.

In 2008, just over 10 years ago, Katie was the victim of a brutal acid attack.

Her at-the-time boyfriend, Danny Lynch, had arranged for Stefan Sylvestre to throw acid in Katie's face after he learned she was planning on breaking up with him.

Lynch had been physically, sexually and emotionally abusive to Katie during their two-week relationship.

After the attack, Katie has undergone more than 250 surgeries.

However, she has not allowed the horrific attack to ruin her life.

Instead she founded the Katie Piper Foundation which aims,

"to have a world where scars do not limit a person's function, social inclusion or sense of well being."

Her Instagram is also full in inspiration and positive messages of self-love.

Her #10YearChallenge encouraged viewers not to see aging as something negative, but instead to remember that "#lifeisprecious."

"#10yearchallenge don't let this challenge create anxiety within you about ageing- it's an absolute privilege. 1st pic me age 25 year of 2009 in my mums kitchen. 2nd Pic is me age 35 last week in my own kitchen 2019! #lifeisprecious #health#humanbodyisamazing"

People are taking the opportunity to thank Katie for her reminders.

Katie also spoke about her post in relation to other #10YearChallenge pictures.

"Some of the posts have been playing on people's insecurities and we don't need anymore. Life is tough for everyone as it is."

Katie is my hero!


People Divulge The Scariest Thing That's Ever Happened To Them

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
