Tall Girl In A Small World: Learning to Love My Height
Being tall has always been an issue for me every since I can remember. I struggled to feel beautiful and comfortable in my own skin for years. I always felt like being different was a curse and if I was shorter life would be easier. Because when it comes to dating, it can sometimes be hard to find a guy that doesn’t mind dating a tall girl.
On top of that when you are different like that, you tend to stand out in a crowd. Especially when you are the tallest person in the room. Yet all in all, I would not trade being 5′ 11″ for anything in the world. Over the years , I have slowly started to embrace the person that I am. Understanding that my height is more so a blessing than a curse. Because no matter how much I would like to be shorter, it’s never going to happen. So I might as well just love myself and move on with more important things in life. Instead of worrying about something that I can not change.
Overall, I have also realized that my height is not that much of a big deal. I mean let’s face it, there are of plenty of other women that are just as tall as me or taller. So why should I feel so insecure about my height.? Also, think about how many women wear heels just to be taller. Yet to be honest, I think a lot of it has to due with society. Becasuse sometims when it comes to society there can definintely be basis towards men and women.
At the end of the day whether you are tall or short, just love the skin that you are in. Be happy with the body that God gave you and live life to the fullest.
