I am short!! I am only 5 feet tall. It has never bothered me that much before. Yesterday I was walking into my sons elementary school at dismissel time. Tons of kids pre-k through 5th grade were walking out the door. Most of them coming out at that time were taller than me. For the first time I wanted to crawl into hole. I felt lost and extremely self inward. I told my husband how I was feeling and he said well at least I wasn't a midget. Is it true that anything under 5' tall is considered a midget?? My neighbor is only 4' something and she is one of my best friends. Every where I go now I feel self conscious now. How do I shake this feeling. My height has never bothered me before.
