I am 14 years old and only 5'1". My doctor says I probably
won't grow anymore, and I am the shortest of all my friends. I look weird next
to them in pictures, since they are really tall. I can never find jeans that
fit, and my parents don't allow me to wear high heels. I always seem to be
peering up at people who are so much taller than me. Are there any advantages
to being short?
From one 5’1” hunnie to another, I can confidently and
happily tell you that being short is no big deal. There are tons of us petite
pretties out there, so don’t feel like you’re in a major minority just ‘cause
all of your friends are tall.
Here’s me best-of list for why being short totally rocks:
1. I can date anyone
I want without worrying if he’s too short for me.
2. I’m always cute.
3. I can wear
sky-high heels (well, could, once my ‘rents let me) without towering over the
4. I always get the
best hiding places when my friends and I play hide-and-go-seek. (OK, I might be
a little juvenile sometimes…)
5. I never have to
worry about pants being too short, or growing out of my favorite pair.
