    Success is the best revenge

    short. I walk into a room and the subtext is short. Women pat me on the head. Men think they can mess with me and they do. Not because they are good or smart, but because they are taller. My boss  regularly, openly  ridicules  me for being short. Makes fun of the...

    Not A Problem... Usually.

    I'm 17, and since I'm five foot one and have -ahem- girlish features (yes, I do mean small boobs) I look around twelve or thirteen. Normally, when it comes to the retail environment, that's not a problem--I just get a step stool, no biggie. But... I work in a store that happens...

    Apparently I'm short at 5ft 3

    and a half. I'm not as small as a couple of my friends though but I still get dwarfed by pretty much everyone in my year 😂

    I wish I was a short girl.

    Short women and girls have it so easy. They have an easier time getting men and they get the tall and sexy good-looking/average men. I'm 5'11 and it sucks. Guys and men avoid me and I wish I was like 5'4 or 5'1. Shorter guys hit on me and it stinks because tall. I don't know why...

    I'm short and I'm proud! I actually love being short. Someone once said, "Nature grows things until they are perfect-Some of us didn't take as long." But, if that quote is true, than my boobs aren't perfect ;) I used to get picked on a lot for being short (I'm 5'2.) but once I've...

    This is my current thought in my daily life.

    I'm like a midget but that doesn't bother me because people find me cute and adorable. The problem is that there's a world up there that I'd never have the chance to know. I keep my hopes that one day I'd past my 5'ft weight.

    and the friend on the right is probably 5'6. I've always wondered if they have ever gotten embarrassed walking right next to me haha. I'm only 4'9-4'10 and I am pretty stubby too, which sucks. I can get really annoyed at times because being short tends to make me look like a...

    I'm 4'9," petite & 103 pounds.

    In my opinion this isn't a bad thing, if I can't reach something I use a step stool or wear hidden wedge platform sneakers so that I'm 5ft tall. The only time being this small sucks is when your bigger husband is abusing you and your too small and weak compared to him to fight...
