There is an issue that has been plaguing girls and women since the beginning of time! What is it? HEIGHT! Girls being taller than guys and feeling they can’t wear heels! Well let me tell you something. There is nothing wrong with your height! I stand at a whopping 5’10 AND 3/4! I have always been taller than the boys! I think I was 5 feet tall when I was in first grade. *just kidding* lol.. BUT YOU GET THE POINT RIGHT!? I have always been TALL!
There is nothing wrong with that! By nature, girls grow faster than boys and I can understand the adolescent issue with being taller than the guys.
SO I CAME UP with a little list.
The TOP 4 issues girls have with their height when it comes to guys:
5. The guy HAS to be taller than me.
4. I don’t want to stand out when with my friends.
3. I can’t take a short boy to the dance. I'll get teased.
2. We are going to look so dumb in pictures.
AND THE NUMBER ONE REASON!
1. I CAN’T WEAR HEELS!
WHO SAID YOU CANT??
I’m telling you, YES YOU CAN! It is okay to wear heels. We all have been through the rough patch of dealing with guys who were vertically challenged. Maybe that is just me.I can remember senior year, prom, I had a long dress and I needed to get high heels so my dress would not drag on the ground. I had to be at least 6’1 that day. My date was tall, probably 6 feet tall. When it came time for the pictures I took one shoe off just so I wouldn’t tower over him! EVEN IF IT WAS BY AN INCH! CRAZY HUH!? I have done a lot of growing up since then. If I can be honest with you, I haven’t gotten over it 100%. Pray for me.
To the young ladies…
I understand the complex you may have about being tall and standing out! I understand you have short friends and even if they wear heels it makes NO DIFFERENCE *I’ve been there* BUT, there is light at the end of this tunnel you think you are in. For one, EMBRACE the tallness! Love your long legs and long torso! Don’t be afraid to wear the heels! (I cant stress that enough) You are tall and beautiful! Stand up straight and don't be embarrassed or shy of your height.
*sidebar: You will turn heads in those heels when walking with confidence. For example: I can’t tell you the countless amount of times I’ve been called a nice tall glass of water (it's a compliment, believe it or not) And the boys who tease you about your height are just jealous because you have the height they want!
DON’T TRY AND BLEND IN! Don’t slouch either!
To the women…
Yes it can get uneasy wearing the heels with a shorter man, but that is something you have to overcome on your own. If he doesn’t have an issue then why should you!? Wear the heels with .. :say it with me: CONFIDENCE!
Don’t let your height hinder you! And if its love that you are in search for remember there is somebody for everybody! (Don't believe me? Click Here.)
It’s your confidence that attracts people, not your height! Wear the heels and strut your stuff!
Don’t forget your confidence…
