Are you insecure about your height?

I'm 6'5", and my height made me somewhat self-conscious in high school. People always told me to join the basketball team, but I didn't want to; so I felt like people thought that I wasn't reaching my full potential because of it, though I didn't desire any shorter height.

I made jokes about my short friends' heights in high school, which I didn't mean anything by. I thought "It's just the way that they are, they can't help it - so why would they be insecure about it?" I didn't like making fun of anyone's weight, looks nor intellect, and I didn't think that shorter people could be insecure about themselves like I could since people told me to play basketball all the time. Now I'm ashamed of making jokes about my short friends' heights.

  • Yes I am. I'm 6'9.5" and I was bullied all throughout high school for being too tall. I was rejected by girls for being too tall. People give me the weirdest looks when I walk out of my house. I hate how I fit nowhere. It makes me wish I was shorter but there really is nothing I can do about it. It just gives me an edge in basketball. I feel like average people are the least likely to be insecure about height. It would be ridiculous if they are though. A very tall guy saying that he has never been insecure about his height is lying to himself or is lying on the internet.

  • I am 5'0. That is pretty average for an Asian, but not in western countries. I have gotten to like my height, because in the end its my height and I can't change it.

  • Nah, it's annoying being 5'2 at times but it's not something that I'm embarrassed or insecure about.

  • In my country I'm on the taller side (I can relate to your basketball story), but worldwide I'm average. Sometimes I have when I wish I was a little bit taller, but otherwise I'm content with my height.

  • I'm 5'11" (180cm)

    And I definitely wish I was taller, mostly because I like the idea of it.
    But I'm glad I'm not any short, I suppose.

  • Why u feel insecured, are u weak or smt? Lol, there are guys like 5.4 or even smaller but they are confident AF and get tons of chicks. I love my height anyways, its not short and not tall but above average ( 1.81 cm ) and I am not insecured.
