Nobody is perfect. We all have things about ourselves we'd love to change.

Now the body is a beautiful mastery to behold, but sometimes a few upgrades or changes couldn't hurt.

You can still love yourself and and want to change or eradicate a thing or two.

Just don't be obsessive it let it define you.


Redditor It_was_I_who_farted wanted to hear about what physical parts of ourselves rub us the wrong way.

They asked:

"What's the most annoying thing about your body?"

My hair.

I want my old hair back.

The gray is not working for me.

And my fingers, I wish they were longer.

Don't ask.

Colors of the Wind

"I have three natural hair colours, blonde hair on my head, black eyebrows, and a beard ranging from blonde to light red to brownish. body hair is black too." ~ Naberius_Bune

hate needing meds...

"Epilepsy. As long as I need medication to keep functioning, I need to have a job with medical insurance. And if I change jobs, I lose insurance for a while." ~ whywouldistop1913

"I grew up on Medicaid/Medicare because my mom had epilepsy. Once they thought she had it under control, she got a job, car and started working. She died in a car crash because she had a seizure going to work early one morning. Yes, it sucks." ~ JackOfAllDevs

Go ask your doctor

"How much I sweat. I can grab a controller and just play whatever and two minutes later it's like someone was mouth breathing on it." ~ kaseadios

"Seriously, I went years just living with it and I know it did a number on my self-esteem and mental health."

"Then I asked my doctor and she was like, oh yeah, that's a medical condition, here's a pill for that. I cannot express how dumb I felt putting myself through all that. Go ask your doctor. Glycopyrrolate is the medicine I was prescribed, it works very well with minimal side effects (for me, at least)." ~ MisterMasterCylinder

A Close Shave

"The fact that the hair that my dad lost from his head seemed to magically appear on my butt." ~ benthebear3

"I'm 42 and have been shaving my head for close to 15 years because I was starting to get the horseshoe shaped hair of my grandpa on my mom's side (hair around the sides and back and bald on top). Meanwhile, my dad at 75 has full head of hair." ~ lipp79

Survive...

"Cancer. I need to keep kicking its a**." ~ Zmirzlina

I hate cancer.

I'm so sorry.

Good vibes all over.

Struck Down

"I get random freaking allergies out of nowhere." ~ Bruce-Led

"I developed 5 new allergies in my 20’s. As I grow older, my body is beginning to reject the world." ~ Itsafinelife

Connected to this bone...

"I have developed a hip problem that keeps me from running for exercise. Was my favorite pastime for 20 years." ~ DontShootTheFood

"This was a major issue of mine until I strengthened my glutes by laying on my side and writing the alphabet with my foot. I also started squatting with the bands which forces me to activate my outer glute. Sometimes stretching isn't the answer. Sometimes it's a strength imbalance." ~ jnickpeters

Gassy

"Anything and I mean anything I eat causes bloating and gas. I've tried the enzymes before eating, keeping a food journal etc and nothing. I'm to the point of not wanting to eat at all. It's just not worth the pain and discomfort. And unlike guys who think it's funny to be gassy, it's not so funny when you're a girl. 😥". ~ SkyRain1

I had no idea...

"Lack of a working pancreas." ~ MrPhoen1xx

"Same for me. Then my immune system took out my thyroid. Been this way since I was 2. Then blood clots caused a stroke. Went to the doc they said my hand quit working because of carpel tunnel 8 days later another blood clot stopped my heart for 5 minutes. Said type 1 was the cause. So anyway be vigilant and if your hand goes numb demand proper tests. I had no idea." ~ Mycatlovesbiscuits

Explosions

"I sneeze whenever I see a bright light. So any time I go outside. And I have a really explosive sneeze." ~ BloodieOllie

Damn colds and allergies. That is clearly only the tip of the iceberg.

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
