I never really considered myself to be that tall until other people pointed it out to me.
There are definitely people out there that are taller than I am, but for some reason, I'm constantly reminded how tall I am.
This doesn't seem like such a bad thing, but it comes with some struggles for sure.
There are perks like being able to reach the top cabinets or reaching the pedals of a car, but most of the time I find myself feeling like Buddy the Elf, a giant among cute little elves, who literally and figuratively doesn't fix it.
1. Buying Pants
Super cute, make or break an outfit, also make you even taller than your friends.. Just what you need! NOT
which brings me to my next point:
I don't know why, but society decided it's the norm for your boyfriend to be taller than you, so when you're tall, your dating pool shrinks immensely. Especially if they're still supposed to be taller than you in those dreaded heels
5. Awkward pictures
7. Thus, dress codes were a nightmare
8. People saying "wow! you're tall!"
9. "Do you play basketball?"
Does that answer your question?
I was taller than my 9th-grade male English teacher and I felt like I should have been the one in power. I don't know!!! it was all so confusing!!!!
12. Being in the back of all group photos
It doesn't matter that you actually found pants to fit you BECAUSE NO ONES GONNA SEE THEM IN THOSE PICTURES!!
13. Being afraid your kid will be a monster
14. Googling your newest celeb crush's height
I'll leave you with one of the most inspiring quotes I've ever seen, "Why are tall girls afraid of wearing heels and being taller than guys? Wear them and pat them on their head like he's your son."
