Let me explain. I am sixteen years old and I am 5'6" tall. However, over the past few months, I have become very self conscious about my height. Every time I go out and pass people (especially girls) taller than me, it gets me down. If I turn on the news, it disheartens me to see soldiers and police and the like, because I know I am not as tall as them. Most boys I know are slightly taller than me (about 5'7"-5'11"), although most girls I know are smaller then me- but only just, at around an inch or two. I've never felt small, but I do now. And with that comes a sense of worthlessness, of not being a 'complete' human being. It always annoys me when I see girls my age taller than me. I know men don't stop growing until their 21 (and if I grow an inch a year, I may be six foot by the time I stop, which would be ideal but unlikely), but it does get to me sometimes.
How tall are you?
Any tips/advice to me to help me grow or make me feel better?
