Everybody has their own weaknesses and strengths. What differs us is how we react to them. I don't know about you but I had this weakness that is actually my strength. Or let's say my strength that used to be my weakness.
I was so conscious about my height. Well I still am. To all appearances I am taller than general (Asian) girls -somehow the boys too. This actually what ruined my confidence for years. I was uncomfortable being in the middle of the crowd. I used to hunch my shoulder to make myself look shorter and being kind of apathetic towards my environment. It happened for years during my early teens -until I met this young lady when we were on high school.
This petite darling was all I wanted to be: tiny and cute and hug-able. She could wear the highest heels on the store and no one throws that irritating you-look-so-tall-stop-wearing-heels stare. *I do have those stares every time I wear heels*
What I missed out was how the other way around happened to her. She used to say how she wanted to be taller. And keeps saying words such as "How could you be so tall" or "Give me some of your height" every single time we meet. Oh, if only I could!
Well apparently this world is full of more people like me and more people like her. It's a never ending discontentment. What I took from her years ago -and I still keep it until today- is that: It is good to be short and petite. But it is also good to be tall and gigantic. Being grateful of what we are is the best medicine to our confidence. Cheers!
