    I Am Short But It'S Okay :)

    I'm about 4'11. I never played sports in my childhood being shy and self-conscious and my mom and dad aren't tall either. My mom is 5'2 and dad is 5'7. My mom's family has very short people. Other then being short, I look like a 12 year old even though I am 17. Probably because...

    I am 5'-2" and I hate it.

    Everyone thinks I look 12 or 14. Everyone in my family is also short so I don't think I'm going to get any taller.

    I am barely of 5'0" and get told I look younger.

    I am 20 and went to the mall with my Sister and two of her friends. We ran into some other girls that they knew but I didn't. They started saying I was 14 and stop lying about my age. How embarrassing.

    I'm 14 and in 9th grade

    and I'm only 4'10". Hopefully I'll be at least 5'1" when I stop growing although I wish maybe a bit taller than that.

    I'm a 21 year old chick who is barely over 5'1" in height.  I guess its genetics cause I'm am possibly only an inch taller than my mother and my dad is about 5'7"-5'8".  Growing up I was always just an inch or two shorter than most of my classmates, but even when...
