What physical/personal trait were you made fun of for growing up that you now consider your best asset (or considered best by others)?

    My curly hair. I HATED it in grade school. The girls would tease me about putting my hair up in curlers. And as I wasn't the most boyish boy to start with, it was fairly traumatic.

    I thought it was great when blow driers hit the market, because I could blow dry the curl out of it. Of course, in those days, I HAD to have long hair.

    At one point I went to a barber who told me "I enjoy cutting curly hair," and that was my first clue it might be a positive thing.

    I won't say it's my "best point" but at age 58 I still have most of my hair, and I keep it fairly short and let it curl as it will.

    My teeth/smile. I had this HUGE gap and didn't want to smile for anyone or anything, and people made fun like crazy. Then braces happened (thanks parents), and now, I definitely feel it's my best trait...and that's from personal opinion and from what others have told me.

    My big nose. Still embarrassed about it but a couple of guys have come forward and said they really like me because they like guys with a prominent nose and I've thought "hmmmm........take that you fuckers in school!"

    Growing up as a fat kid, I had pretty obvious man boobs.
    When I started working out it gave my pecs some kind of good start, I guess.

    As a kid, I hated my overly thick hair and big ass. Now both are an asset..

    Two things, actually:

    Red hair (the drapes have tamed down, but still fire below).

    My ass (can take out a row of people if I turn like . . . this. Bam).

    This is a hard one. I was mostly made fun of for being the fat kid...

    I did get made fun of for writing some poetry. Yet, later, I found that it was a skill I have and became known for my creativity.

    My height and posture. A slumped over short arse once took the piss out of me for being too stiff and upright. Short man syndrome.

    To be fair it was only the once, but it stuck, for some reason. And I did feel overly self-conscious about being so tall at that age, so it hit where it hurt.
