Paris Jackson's eyes

Paris Jackson didn't have the easiest childhood. But rather than dwell on the tough times, the 19-year-old prefers to look back on her middle school days with a nostalgic sense of humor. 

On Monday, Jackson shared screenshots from a fan account that had posted a slew of throwback photos. She noted that the adorably awkward photos were taken during her "emo phase," and they're beyond relatable.

(Ah, middle school...)

Jackson was the definition of "angsty teen."

But weren't we all, LOL? *aggressively rolls eyes*

Like most middle schoolers, Jackson was still trying to figure out who she was and the type of person she wanted to be.

Awe, bb Paris!

By her fourteenth birthday, Jackson had officially become a self-described "emo kid."

However, her style had *totally* evolved by the time she reached her sweet 16.

The tween years are all about experimentation, after all.

Now almost 20, Jackson has finally come into her own.

But she wouldn't be the person she is today without those hilariously relatable middle school phases!
