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’m a 20-year-old junior, 5’9”-5’10” on a good day. to be honest, there are moments i love being tall and being able to help people reach things and playing basketball and walk fast when i’m late, but there’s some moments when i don’t like being tall, like when it comes to the comments. most of my friends are shorter than me, and between them and other adults i have ALWAYS heard about how tall i am. (my aunt constantly tells me i’m growing…i think she’s just getting shorter!) i hunch very often to appear shorter, and now it’s subconscious to the point that anytime i’m standing up “straight” i still somehow hunch my shoulders.
i immediately looked up this tumblr after finding out the guy i like is only 5’6” (we haven’t officially met yet, but we chat A LOT; we have a mutual friend who introduced us via fb). i worried: would he still like me? it’s funny that the post from that one male anon said that he was sad taller girls rejected him because they wanted taller guys. that’s how i used to feel as a tall girl in high school, but now height really doesn’t matter. i’m kind of relieved that there are guys out there like that anon that like girls who are taller, because that is my biggest worry; he won’t like me because i’m taller than him. i’m so glad i found this site, now. i think it will help me start to feel proud in everyday life of being tall, and not just on the basketball court. thanks. :)
