Being tall has always been an issue for me ever since I can remember. Being 5’11”, I struggled to feel beautiful and comfortable in my own skin for years. I always felt like being different was a curse because I always wanted to blend in. Instead of standing out in the crowd like a sore thumb. So for years, I envied other women that were shorter than me. I always assumed that most men preferred shorter women over tall women.
I know to some that notion may sound idiotic, but for years I felt that way. Until I started to embrace and love myself for the person that I am. While most importantly realizing that I am beautiful just the way God made me. Because no matter how much I may want to be shorter, I know it is not my reality. Life is too short to be worrying about something that I can not change which is why I choose to live my life to the fullest.
Now in my twenties, I have learned that my height is not a curse. That my height is a part of me that makes me unique. And it should never be something that I am ashamed of because I am one of a kind.
So to all of my female audience reading this post, never be ashamed or feel insecure because of your height. Realize that you are beautiful just the way God made you. Because no matter if you are short or tall, know that every height has its perks!
Overall, I have also realized that my height is not that much of a big deal as I make it. I mean let’s face it, there are of plenty of women that are just as tall as me or taller. “So why should I feel so insecure about my height?”
