Big GirlBeing tall is hard. I'll day it up front. I sound like I'm complaining and I guess I kind of am. It's not so bad now that the boys my age are starting to catch up to me and get a little taller but middle school was impossible!
My first boyfriend was three inches shorter then me and I guess there's really nothing wrong with that. I didn't have a problem with that but he did. All the guys that I've ever liked that were shorter than me had a problem with my height. Sometimes I wish I were 5'5" instead of 5'11".
Don't get me wrong I love my body and wouldn't trade it for the world. I read an article in 17 magazine that was called the body peace project or something like that and I know it wasn't but I felt like it was written just to me! It said to look in the mirror first thing every morning and say something that I like about my body. It was supposed to be different every day and when I ran out of things I liked I was supposed to look at the things that I hate about myself and say what I needed it for.
This article changed my life. I'm still a little uncomfortable when I'm the tallest person in a room but other than that I am so much more comfortable in my own skin than I used to be. I recently joined a volleyball club and it's full of tall girls which I love! It's so great to be around people that I have an unspoken bond with since they had to have the same problems as me. I stopped throwing up after meals and I feel great about myself.
I have been seing a boy that's 5 inches taller than me and he's great. He doesn't care that I'm taller then all the other girls he's ever been with.
I guess that's all for now. I erally hope that another tall girl will read this and become more comfortable with herself as well
