So I'm currently 15 and around 4'9-4'10. I am constantly being ridiculed both in school and by my relatives. It's just so unnatural that I'm like 2 inches shorter than my mother. I'm also the shortest in class. I'm not a late bloomer or anything because I got my periods when I was in 5th grade and am grown in every sense (wide hips, boobs, butt etc etc) My father is 174-175 cm and my mom is 152-153 cm and my brother is pretty tall too. WHY AM I LIKE THIS!!
do you think I'd reach 5'?

Being short is not the same thing as being f*ked up. I've been through a lot of crap throughout my life, and there are mental scars there from it. I was also told as a small child by the doctor that I was destined to be 6 feet tall exactly. I reached 5'7-1/4" (5'8" with shoes on), and then... stopped. Others were all like: "What happened? You never reached your potential!"
However, my grade school years consisted of battling:
-overcoming throat surgery (tonsillectomy),
-some supernatural encounters (deny all you want, I was there!),
-bad diet due to parents having financial hardships and buying cheap crap at the store,
-attempts on my life by crazies in the neighborhood,
-stomach flu (a perennial pest, nearly always around Christmas),
- bad grades every so often due to the above factors,
-weight gain brought on by the above factors,
And then high school happened. So yeah. A hard childhood robbed me of five inches of my "potential." But I can still point to all those things I overcame.2

Aren't they just teasing you in a friendly way?
I have a classmate who's also 4'10" and my deskmate who's 5'5" calls her "little" (like he isn't short 😂), and I'm pointing out to him that he is also short. 😂
Or my mom is pointing out every 2nd day how small my eyes are (you know how big eyes are seen as beautiful and small as ugly) but she isn't trying to make me feel insecure about my eyes, she just notices it (it's in the morning when I'm not wearing my glasses).
The idea is that they are just joking or noticing it, not trying to make fun of you. 😊1
