There is no shortage of viral videos on the internet that are here one day, and old news the next.

But every once in a while we get an update from an old favorite that we never expected.

And in the case of a video of a young boy, the ending is oh so sweet.

It all started when the boy's father recently shared a video of the boy that went viral two years ago in which he was so scared to jump off a diving board that he was shaking uncontrollably.


After a traumatizing moment like that, you could easily understand if little RJ never wanted to step foot on a diving board ever again.

But you'd be wrong.

RJ's dad posted a few new videos of his most recent diving adventures—and it's safe to say that he has totally conquered his fears.


Twitter was incredibly impressed with just how far RJ has come.

And RJ's dad even took the time to respond to some of the love.

And to people who praised how well everyone originally handled RJ's fears.

We can't wait to see what the future holds for this rising star.

Yes. That's a real thing that happened.

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
