Today on my wall is the most idiotic greeting, but at the same time it happens very frequently, when meeting someone new – “Wow, you are so tall, what is actually your height”, followed by “Have you ever played the basket?” or “You’re definitely a model.”
Tell me leggy girls, how many times have you heard these questions in the first sentence?
To those who ask such questions from the very beginning, I would like to remind you that it is worth to say “Hi”, “Nice to meet you”, then exchange some polite words, and maybe during the conversation there will be space for discussion about physicality. It may be hard to imagine, but I know I’m tall. Each of us is aware of this for at least a few or a dozen years. Maybe let’s look at it from a different site. Would you greet someone saying that is short /thin/fat /ugly? Some girls really respond to such a welcome at least as if they were insulted. They try to shrink, at least in their own thoughts, they bend their legs or worse, they stoop to get smaller in your eyes.
Now to you girls, my tall sisters, beauties! I hear such greetings all the time, but so what? You think it makes a difference to me, and I wonder every morning whether to wear heelstoday … Well, the answer is – I don’t give a damn. After all, this is not my problem, that someone has not grown up, or that at my sight he forgets the basic principles of savoir vivre. We, tall women, have definitely more opportunities to find ourselves in everyday situations, professionsor sports, in which the additional advantage is growth. This, of course, does not mean that we always want it, we just have the advantage and that’s it.
Even if, objectively, such talks are a bit annoying, it is very funny for me that someone forgets his tongue in the mouth 😉 To tell the truth, I often answer:
“It is also nice to meet you, thank you, I am 183 cm. What are your criteria, how many centimeters counts, that the girl is tall, because I think I should add these heels”.
I play with it, sometimes I even coquet and make the one embarrassed. I don’t read – apart from this resent research – and you too, please forget about the depressing internet forums, which there are many, unfortunately. Treat them as a toxic relations that limit you, I wrote about such here. Search for places and content that will help you build your confidence, which is the key to you! Write to the other girl who inspired you, make a positive relationship. Write to the one you find depressed, and offer her your support. Ignore unflattering taunts or nicknames. Smile when someone calls you a giraffe – imagine that the highest giraffe ever was 5.87m tall, so what is your only 190cm 😉 ? Get rid of fear, open yourself to all your favorite things and activities.
Face it and say with pride
YES I AM TALL!
And when you fall in love with your height, your reaction to the question: “Wow, you are so tall, what is actually your height”.
You will answer:
A) YES, I AM TALL, I AM… 170, 190 cm… AND I AMPROUD OF IT
B) YES, I AM TALL, I AM… 170, 190 … AND THIS IS FIRST OF MY MANY STRENGHTS
You will see how the reactionsof these people will change.
Forgive them that most often blinded and overwhelmed by your height, they forget that, apart from long legs, you also have personality, character and mind, which at the moment they did not have enough.
