I Hate My Height

    My long torso and short,

    stubby legs make me look even shorter. Every time I go to school, I'm almost always as tall as the boys who haven't went through puberty yet. In chorus class, we had to line up by height. I was the second shortest, I think. My mom is 5'0", and I wanted to grow at least as tall...

    Someone said my height made me gross

    and that I was a giant. I'm only 5'9" :/ I hate this height so much. I feel like people would actually think I'm pretty if I was short :(

    I'm 14 and I'm only 5'6"

    and going into high school. Everyone is at least 5'9" and up and I'm the short kid. My parents are both under 5'9". My only hope is that my grandparents pass me some tall traits, otherwise I'm, quite frankly, ******.
