I Hated Being the Tall Girl in School

Comment, like, share this story. Jasmine is 18 years old, lives in China, AND is six feet tall! That's tall no matter where you live, but in China it is ver very tall, and especially for a girl. She wasn't very tall when she was in elementary school - just like all the other kids in her grade - but, in seventh grade, when she hit puberty and started developing, she grew nearly fifteen centimeters in that one year. That growth changed everything for her. Her classmates were all much much shorter than she was, and somehow that ended up having them leave her out of tons of activities and projects. On top of al of that, and how different she now felt from the rest of her old friends and classmates, shopping for clothes became a real challenge. It go so hard that ended up having to shop for mens clothes and the big and tall shops. Her dreams of dressing up like the other girls and using make up and fitting in a feeling beautiful, well, it just never quite worked out that way for her. The fact that she was "the tall girl" had her singled out and friend-less. Unfortunately, she got used to it, being a loner, the tall girl, and after awhile she learned how not to let it bother her. In fact, she convinced herself that it was better, and easier - after all, now she pretty much wore the same black t-shirt every day and never had to worry about putting on make up or flirting with boys or any of that. Jasmine is even taller than most of the boys in her class, and that makes it hard as well. She's tried to join in on activities with the other girls in her class. but there is something uncomfortable about it and it seems that none of the other kids want to hang out with someone who is so much taller than them. Sometimes she really just hates her body. She knows of course that fashion models are all tall as well, but Jasmine doesn't feel pretty in any way, so it doesn't help much to think about that. And it doesn't help that the other kids make fun of "the tall girl" behind her back, and it's even worse when it's time for photos - nobody can ever get her into the frame with her classmates, and so usually those photos don't have her in them. It's hard not to get jealous of the other girls her age as they go out clothes shopping and doing each others make up and all the followers they have on their social media accounts and the likes they get on their selfies. Jasmine just sits there and watches it all happen. She realized she couldn't change the way the other kids saw her, or treated her, and so she decided to put 100% of her energy and effort into her studies and school work. So, instead of shopping or taking selfies, or much of anything for that matter, Jasmine buried herself in her books, trying to become the best person she can be. So, over the years and through high school she has maintained amazingly good grades and this fall she is heading off to college to study economics . She feels good about who she is, how tall she is, and how she looks. She's one of those tall women now. And, she's learned something super valuable - you might not be able to change the way you look to others, but you can change your own image of yourself on the inside. She has learned that who you are is who you choose to be and NOT what others say you are. Jasmine is now proud to be the tall girl. - - - We love this true story.

Why do people care so much? I mean, Imma be honest, I feel like she kinda exaggerated it. But what do I know, I don't know her personally, so let's not jump to conclusions. First of, if she didn't have friends it's either because te people around her care too much or because she cares too much. When the people around you care too much, that seems like the most normal option. 'They hate me because I'm different from them' (I'm not making fun of her, I'm like that too, a lot) But honestly, it's probably because she herself wasn't comfortable with it. She felt awkward and felt like she didn't fit in, that's the reason why she didn't make friends easily. Also, what's the deal with the over sized shirt??? First of, oversized shirts and hoodies are the best thing in the world, I wear it all the time... Nothing wrong with that. (Even though I'm tiny, I need to be careful with what kind I buy though, cause sometimes is makes me look like a dwarf... But if you look for it, you can find the right things, don't worry) Second 'Too tall for the girl clothes, too short for men's clothes.' What kind of bs is that? Maybe it's because it didn't fit well because of the body type? But seriously, the way she made said it sounded wrong XD Again, no hate on the girl. I'm just saying that if you have clothing issues you just need to look for the right things. Experiment with A LOT of shit and see what fits best. I'm serious, everyone can find clothes that fit perfectly for them This shit about no clothes fitting for you because you're too tall, too skinny, too fat... Seriously... I get what you mean... But just look good enough... There are beautiful clothes for everyone. I shop at child section almost always... If I go to the women section I can only find slightly oversized XS clothes (yeah, we don't do XXS here for some reason) Just look man, and look for inspiration with people who's style you love. At the end of the day it doesn't even matter if it looks good on you, as long as you're comfortable and feel good in it. (which mostly is something u look good in)

fbw71u (21 hours ago)
+Kookie1997 Kookie1997 My bad. I was meaning it isn't something wrong if he's shorter then you, as long as you and him do get well togehther. Plus, the boys start to have a bigger heught growth rate at the age of 14-15 so in the future he might be as tall as you or taller then you :) So go and talk to him! ;)

Your tall? Lucky :( I am short and I was born in Russia and apparently the kids would make fun of me for being short I guess I'm suppose to be tall? I didn't care until I hit 7th grade than people were making fun of me and saying things like eww she sick she scrawny and puny so I that's when I started to eat alot I became a big girl but I I relize how hard it is and i got called fat so when i was 18 i had my sister help me lose weight i lost weight i went from 300 to 130 it took me 1 1/2yr I felt great and happy and I got called puny but I shrugged and went on I feel fit and happy my next challenge is my mental health I have hypochondria, OCD, depression, and anxiety

this also happened to me, I was very small when I was in elementary school. I was always at the front of lines and class but I grew so much when I turned 1st year high school. People were shocked and asked me what did I drink or eat. But they also started to talk behind my back. I was skinny and tall, and I don't have a model body and a pretty face. Even my friends joked me around, and I felt hurt. I still don't love myself, but I'm trying to. I don't know why I told my story but.. yeah. 🙃
