People Who Grew Up In Conservative Households Share Their Glow Up Pics After Moving Out

by Ayoub

There's nothing better than feeling comfortable in your own skin, it's something that cannot be described with words. The inability to express yourself through your appearance will make it really hard for anyone to feel comfortable in their own skin, especially when they're forced to dress or behave a certain way.

Cherryemojigirl is a 19-year-old TikTok user from Utah who started a viral trend on the platform and thousands of people quickly were inspired by it and decided to share their 'glow ups' with the world. Freedom is something a lot of people take for granted, but it's the only thing that matters in life.

This viral trend was started by TikTok user Cherryemojigirl

Soon after Cherryemojigirl's video went viral, many people decided to follow the trend and shared their glow ups with the whole world.

Growing up in a conservative household, Cherryemojigirl was never allowed to express her true self through her appearance. So she never felt like that was the 'real' her.

Soon after graduation, the TikToker gained the freedom to do with herself as she pleases, so she changed her style entirely. She's a completely new person now.

Jay decided to embrace and explore her gender fluidity ever since she came out.

“I’d been so used to such strict expectations of what made a person a woman and what made them a man so anything in between wasn’t seen as ‘girly’ or ‘manly.’ I had to release those ideas and restructure my ideas of what made me feel more feminine and what made me feel more masculine and what just let me float in between. With this, I really learned to love myself for every piece of me.”

She also shared some advice for anyone who's still going through what she had to deal with in the past:

“It doesn’t matter how hard you try, you’ll never please everyone, but by embracing yourself the self-love you feel will overcome the judgment around you,” she said.
“Be okay with the idea that people will leave your life, learn from the lesson they left, and be bravely and beautifully you despite the hate that lives around us. It’s a long and hard journey but it’s well worth the climb,”

Several other TikTok users were inspired by the trend and decided to also share their glow-up stories:
