Struggles Of Being The Short Friend

Struggles Of Being The Short Friend

No woman wants to be six foot tall, but we don't want to be the shortest person in the room, either. Five foot, 8 inches is too tall and 5'3" is too short, so unless you fall somewhere in the middle there, you know the struggle of being too tall or too short. I happen to be the short friend.

People refer to you as "shorty."

People will rest their arm on your shoulder.

People will make jokes about how you can't reach things in certain places.

High shelves are the devil. They are only used for things you will most likely never use.

People will offer to help you reach things, even though you have ways to get to everything.

Most people have to bend down to hug you.

Also, you have to go on your tip-toes to hug them.

You use your tip toes for a lot of things actually.

You have to move the car seat whenever you drive someone else's car because you can't even reach the pedal.

Ottomans have a whole new meaning.

People will make the "Oh, I didn't see you there," joke because they think they're clever.

Even in heels, you're still short.

People always mention how short you are (like you didn't already know).

There's always that awkward gap in pictures where your one friend towers over you.

It's not all a struggle, though.

One of the plus sides of being the short friend is you most likely have small feet, so none of your friends can borrow your shoes, but you can fit into theirs.

We also look cuter with taller guys. So, it isn't all a struggle.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

You don't just start as the person you are meant to be; there is a journey full of ups and downs that mold a person, so this is my journey.

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will. My smile wasn't always as bright as it is today, but this is the story behind my smile, the story about how I got here to the happiest place I'll ever be. I'll begin at freshman year of high school.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
