My Height: My Insecurity

Little bit of a story and an insight.

The title is negative. I know. But you know, for every negative there is a positive. So only positivity and goodbye negativity. But it bothers me. I am 5’3 inches tall. And it is my biggest insecurity. When I was small, it merely bothered me, but the older I grew, day by day, when I started becoming more aware of everything around me and my feelings, it started seeping through me. All my friends were taller than me. And they still are. I guess, I just never had any sort of growth spurt. And some people say it is cute, some people say petite is beautiful. But that does not help.

I always wanted to be tall. My parents still wished that I was taller than what I am, as it would add a sort of “demeanor” to my “personality”. That made me feel even more insecure. So I pushed myself. I still work out and try to increase my height, but nothing seems to be working. I tend to feel good and confident about myself when I am just with myself. But as soon as I step outside of my house and see a girl who is taller than me, I immediately start feeling insecure again. It is an inevitable feeling. Except, it does not feel that great. I feel small, not only physically, but mentally as well.


I know that I am growing up and I am still learning, so it is definitely getting better. The feeling is slowly starting to go away as I start to feel more comfortable with what I have. And plus wearing heels does not make me look awkward. Haha. So, if there is anything in particular that makes you feel insecure about yourself, be selfish. Do not give it too much thought. Insecurities like attention and your job is to not give any attention to it at all. Instead, work towards driving that insecurity away. Don’t focus on the result much and just keep working and it will all settle down with time.

What about you? Are you insecure about your height or anything else?

And don’t forget to smile today! 🙂



  1. I am EXACTLY the same as you here – I’m 16 and 5 foot 1. It’s not as bad as it used to be, because now I don’t care as much, but the insecurity’s still there.


    1. I guess it just takes time and for that while there’s not much that we can do other than trying to improve on it and embrace it, but besides that point, short girls have their perks, so we’re good! 😋
