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."
I lived in Japan for a year and I’m planning on returning to live there indefinitely. Being of European descent in a place like Japan gets you enough stares by itself, but with me being 5’10”, people would tend to see me before they would see any of the other foreigners I was with. I used to get a lot of older people coming up to me and commenting on how tall I was, and I shocked a lot of boys upon meeting them because they weren’t expecting such a tall girl (though I managed to nab myself a pretty cute guy around my height who didn’t mind that I was so tall XD)! Shoes for women that are bigger than a size 8 or 9 pretty much do not exist in Japan and forget trying to find pants long enough. But I’m in love with this country. The culture, the food, the people, the language are my passion and I’m learning to be comfortable with my height so I can live there happily :)
