For all the beautiful tall girls and the problems we have to endure. Through all the teasing, feeling out of place & short hems, I'm finally coming to a point where I realized that there's nothing wrong with being a little different. People still try to tear me down about it but there will always be people doing that. These problems are mostly to make you laugh & go "OH MY GOD. THAT'S MY LIFE." But this is more than just a place to share each other's problems. It's a support group where we encourage girls to see the beauty within them (so play nice, ladies). Ask me anything & feel free to submit!
"You're only as tall as your heart will let you be and you're only as small as the world will make you seem."
Both my sister and I are very tall. She’s 21 and 5’10”ish, and I’m 20 and 6’ish. All the holidays have reminded us was how people automatically assume you’re the older one because you’re taller. Our own family forgets this. And after all these years they don’t understand how the term “Amazon Girl” offends us. They go through the typical jokes (how’s the weather up there, can you even hear us from up there [we just ignore them like we can’t]) and we always hit our head on light fixtures to their amusement. We make fun of them for being stereotypical, short Chicagoans, but they can’t take the hint and yell at us for being offensive. Any one else with a family that does not get it?
