I’m 5’7″ and I always used to be insecure about my height! I always was taller than my friends! Then I found out Rihanna was 5’8″ and I now I don’t mind being tall. Great read and so relatable!

i’ve always been super short (5″1) and hated it!!!! always wished I was taller when I was younger – so i guess the grass is always greener…. but I too have grown into it 🙂

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!

Well put. Embrace what you have without the insecurities to hold you back. Good job

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!

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!

Good on you from embracing your height, I was always the tall one at school, but then I stopped growing at 11 and everyone else over took me, which was strange.

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.

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’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).

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.

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.
