I was supposed to be 5'8"-5'10", but I ended up 5'6". What the fuck should I do now?

While having a 5'9"-5'10" father and a 5'5" sister, I ended up at 5'6" (tbh only 5'5.75"/167cm, 0.64cm away from legit 5'6"). And considering most people tower over their parents nowadays, I find it a little bit awkward.

Not so awkward, however, when I recall that I used to sleep 2 hours per night on average from the age of 10-17 when our body was supposed to grow massively. I never really had any growth spurt. I also consumed mostly carbs (rice) without no adequate amount of protein and vitamins from vegetables, meat and fish. I find it completely unnecessary and stupid because my family isn't poor enough to not be able to afford those things.

Now I really don't know what to do. I am also not sure if I can ever let go this regret or this guilty feeling will stay with me for the rest of my life just like my short stature will. No matter how rich I get, I can never buy and get back the height I was supposed to have.

  • Maybe your parents thought you would have a growth spurt, so you can't really blame anyone for being short. Just accept it.

  • Why were you "supposed to" be 5'8" - 5'10"? Did you have a contract with God? Aside from that misapprehension, you also have assumed that most people are taller than their parents. Google "genetics regression towards the mean."

    • No fuck, what the fuck does that have to do with my problem?

    • Show All
    • Not at all, so you're telling me that short people have bigger chance to be rich than taller people?

    • Well considering they forced you to stay up late and only sleep for 2 hours a day , what I was asking was.
      Did it pay off?
      You said no , well then there's that.
      You got fucked.

  • Are you fucking serious dude? You try and blame this on your parents because you can't stand the fact that a part of, if not the majority, of the problem is you and your attitude. Get over it. Stop feeling sorry for yourself.

  • You've got mad short man syndrome. It really doesn't matter. You can't do anything about it. Might as well focus on something more productive.

  • Height is genetically predetermined, I wouldn't buy any of the bullcrap about environmental factors effecting the end result because they probably weren't extreme enough. They did bullshit you though, I don't blame you for holding that against them.

    • Bullshit me what?

      You think 2 hours a night of sleeping from the age 10-17 wasn't extreme enough?
