Hi:( I'm 16 and I hate being tall. I wish I was shorter like 5'2:(. I'm 5'11 or maybe 6ft now because I know I got taller because everyone around me has gotten smaller:( I'm already self conscious with my face and now that I'm getting bigger its getting to me.:( Yes it helps in the sports I play but I wanna be shorter. Everyone always has to point it out when I go somewhere or they automatically think I play bball(I do playbball(varsity since freshmen year) but that's not the point) I wanna be that cute(I'm not I'm just saying) short girl not that ugly tall amazon. So how can I shrink myself if possible or how can I appear shorter. Even in flats everyone notices:* Or why should I just embrace it?

My advice would be to embrace and love your height. You can either be one of those awkward tall people who try to appear shorter so they bend their shoulders and look weird or you can be one of those majestic, elegant tall women that magically attract attention wherever they go (think Charlize Theron and Kate Middleton and the beautiful, feminine way they carry their height). Enjoy your tallness. Stand straight and proud. Don't think about the perceived advantages of being short, think about all the great things that come with your height. Long legs. Elegance. Model height. Clothes looking better on you. The more you learn to love your looks, the more people around you will pick up on that vibe. Insecurity is not attractive but feeling good in your body is. I have a friend who is your height and she turns heads wherever she goes. She has more men asking her out than any other girl I know... But she totally likes her height and she's making the best of it. There's no reason why you couldn't do that too.0
