    was tall. I average around 5'3"....but finally realizing I can't reach anything and everyone else is so much taller than I am, I had to finally admit it. I am short.

    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...

    I'm about 5'1" in the mornings,

    so for the rest of the day until nighttime, I'm barely even 5 feet. It's one of those things that I've just ended up learning to accept. Being short has its advantages and disadvantages, just as tall people do. Sure, it would be nice if I didn't have to make a miracle leap for...

    Ok so for a loooong time I've been thinking I

    was 5'3"1/2 right? And then last night I measured myself to see if I had grown at all even though I knew I probably didn't :P. So I measured myself and I was 5'2"1/2! Now I feel completely short.

    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...

    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...
