Tall Girl In A Small World: Learning to Love My Height

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.  So the next time you feel insecure about your height, remember you are beautiful and unique.  It doesn’t matter if you are short or tall, every height has it’s perks!

It took me a while to learn to love being a tall girl, as I was also bullied for it in high school.
This resonates a with me.

Love this! I am 5’11 and my sister is 6’3. My parents raised us to be proud of our height. While it can be challenging, I’m glad to be tall!

Your height is part of who you are. Let’s face it, many women envy your height: that is why we put on high hills.
Anyone who tells you that your height is a flaw, they are haters!

As a tall girl myself (6’0) I know there are moments when it can be hard, but the way I see it, there are so many women that want our height….so why not embrace it! great post.

This is an interesting perspective to have because I’ve always been the tallest one out of my friends and I’ve never had a complex about my height. I always felt being tall was a blessing! But I love how you’re embracing your height!!! Great post.

As soon as I saw the title of your post I had to come visit. I’m 6’0 tall and have a medical condition related to my height (a connective tissue thing) and I had loved my height for a long time but it’s just a bit tooo tall. I would wear high heels out and just hear people calling me Godzilla. It was horrible. I looked like a man in drag in some heels. Plus – my grandma is 4’11 :p I remember that I was talking to my grandma in the middle of our town centre (I’m from a… Read more »

I’ve always been averagely short (5’2″ or 3″) and I have a lot of tall friends, and we always used to say we’d like to switch places. The grass is always greener, I guess. Wonderful post!

I’m on the other end. I’m really short and have trouble reaching high items on a shelf 🤣

It’s funny the older you are the more you accept your flaws. For me, I have some fat on my stomach. It has been something I have struggled with for years, but now I have accepted this. I have my days of insecurity, but overall I like how I look and how unique I am.

I am short and have always been short. I started out as the smallest kid in kindergarten and was still the smallest by high school graduation. Being small means my clothes and shoes cost less lol!

People can be so mean. I have a few girlfriends that are very tall and they have also struggled with it. I find as you get older you start to care less of what others think.

Height can be tricky especially when you are much taller or shorter than everyone else but I love that you have found a way to feel comfortable in your own skin! Thanks for sharing your story

Isn’t it awful how much time we spend feeling insecure about our features and characteristics? And worst of all, we all want want we don’t have, although other people are looking at us wishing they had what we have. This is an important article and good to hear your perspective.

Accept for who you are because that is what you are born. And enjoy it because others might be jealous that you have it. Be blessed.

This is such an awesome post. I am a HUGE believe of love yourself for sure. I am about 5’3 and I always used to wish I was taller, now I realize that I am average height overall. Its always easier said than done to embrace our insecurities. This is such a great post.

To be honest I would LOVE to be as tall as you. It’s so important us to value exactly how we are. Being tall is awesome and preferred

This is such an inspiring post. Good thing you know your worth my dear. It is indeed true to be happy with the body that God gave you. It really doesn’t matter what your height or size is as long as you are happy with who you are and doing good things to yourself and others.

I definitely can agree with you. I am short and have always struggled with this. I learned to embrace it and am much happier now. It is so important to love who we are.

I’ve always been on the slightly taller side and when I was younger it always bothered me. You really do have to learn to embrace it!

What a great message of trying to stay positive. I have to say being short my whole life it is hard. I constantly look in the mirror and just bash myself. I need to remember I was blessed in so many ways and my body just will never by the way I want it to be because I had so many “problems” with it.

With my height of 4″9 (I hated it, before). But honestly I have insecurities but I told myself, cheer up girl it’s just a height! So here I am, standing up as tall as others.

I love this so much! I have the opposite… I don’t want to call it a problem, because it’s not a problem… so issue? Predicament? Not sure what the right word is. But I’m 4’9″ and I’ve always wished I was a little bit taller. People tend to think I’m a lot younger than I am and to treat me as such. Over the years I’ve learned to embrace it, and to just be the fierce little fireball that I am. I refuse to wear heels just to be taller. They’re not comfortable, and I’ve decided that I’m going to… Read more »

You know, there are moments when I wish I could be taller, but I learned to be happy with my 5’6′. Count your blessing and be happy in your skin, this is the most important.

Like someone in the comments already said: the grass is always greener on the other side. I used to hate that I was so short, now I kind of like (Except when shopping for clothes. That thing is still a nightmare).

Aimee Geroux

When I was younger I always wished I was taller. I am only 5’5. But as I have aged I am comfortable with my height and if I want to be a bit taller I pop on some heels! You truly have to embrace yourself just as you are because there is not much you can do, especially with your height unless you start chopping legs off LOL.

I’m short and have learned how to embrace it. I like to say I’me average, but then I am just fooling myself lol

Im 5,11 and always felt very ashamed of my height. I’ve always loved heels but I’ve only worn them on few occasions. The last time I wore them was on my 18th birthday when I got many a comment. It just made me want to shrink in a hole. Looking back, they all meant well but didn’t know how to communicate it. However, I think it’s time people started realising it is a form of body shaming. I shall be wearing my heals with pride at the next opportunity I get.
