Being tall has always been an issue for me ever since I can remember. Being 5’11” , I struggled to feel comfortable, in my body for many years. I always felt like being different was a curse because I always wanted to blend in. So for years, I envied other women that were shorter than me. I always assumed that most men preferred shorter women over tall women.
Growing UP Tall
As a kid, my height never seemed to bother me too much. Until I got older, and I hit the stage of puberty. Which from that day on, changed my world forever. Throughout my years in high school and middle school, I always felt conscious about how I looked. I hated being the tallest girl in my class. As well as I hated going shopping or getting school uniforms because I knew the pants legs were always too short for my legs. So for years, I was bullied and teased for being tall. Which, unfortunately, left me with an internal scar of having low self-esteem. But as I got older, things started to change. I realized that my height was beautiful, and being tall is a blessing rather than a curse.
Finally Excepting my height
Now in my twenties, I have learned that the way God made me is the way I was meant to be. And I should never be something that I am ashamed of because I am one of a kind. Because God makes no mistakes, and your height has nothing to do with the person you are destined to be. Sometimes when I reflect on my younger days, there are times I wish I could have been more confident within myself. Instead of letting what people thought about me get inside my head. But even with all of the experiences I have had in my life, I would not change anything. Because it made me, the woman I am today.
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! t?”
