    Take It All In Stride.

    I'm a whopping 5 feet and 2 inches! I don't really mind much. The only time it "bothers" me, is when things are high up on shelves. Shopping can sometimes be tricky if I can't find someone tall to reach things for me. You'd be suprised at how many time I've been yelled at by...

    Sort of, im about 5 ft 9,

    which is a bit less than average but not too bad. But if you ever get sad about your height, just remember Eazy muthaphukkin E was only 5 ft 2, and he banged pretty much every girl he saw!

    I'm 4'10 and 15. This can be tough on male.

    I stand tall and don't let it bring me down. I want to be taller when I am older.

    I am 16 almost 17 and I'm about five foot one.

    That would be considered short right?

    I absolutely love being short

    and I love how tall my man is because I can wear any size heel and he is still taller than me. Being short makes me feel cute and feminine. I think when was younger I wanted to be taller but now I'm grateful for my height.
