I’m a reasonably tall person at 174 cm. I normally quite like my height. I’m taller than a lot of girls, but not a lot taller. However, being tall isn’t always a great thing.
I absolutely love shoes, and especially heels. But I never get to wear them. Well, I suppose I could wear them whenever I want, but I choose not to. The reason for this is that when I do wear them, I feel like a giant. Seriously. When you walk around as a woman being taller than most guys around you, you do feel awkward, and it sucks.
So when I work up the courage to wear heels, there is nothing better than standing next to a fellow tall person, because they make you feel like you’re normal. Normal is a weird word for it, but you know what I mean.
Tomorrow we’ve got our work event called Trade Me Good Times. I’ve already chosen what dress to wear, and it’s a dress that you sort of have to wear heels with. So now I have to choose if I wear the heels that I really love, which are quite high. Or if I wear the slightly lower ones that are super old and don’t look that great. I’m leaning towards the taller ones.
I don’t know why I worry so much. Being tall shouldn’t really be something you feel uncomfortable about. I’ve always been the kind of person who feels insecure about myself. I’ve become a bit more confident lately, but I still have a long way to go.
