Teen girls cannot change their height. But they can change the way they think. It's the only thing you CAN change. But by changing the way you think, you can actually change the way other people think of you.
- Stand tall, stand proud. Know that you are unique and magnificent. You do not need the approval of others
- Your height is equal to most of the boys and taller than many of the
boys. Now, you're probably thinking, "WHAT? Why should THAT make me feel
great about being so tall?" Well, I'll tell you why: It should make you
feel safer and more protected than if you were only 5-2 or whatever the
average height is for a teen girl your age. Teen girls can be victims
of sexual assault or just plain violence.
A boy who wants to push around a girl and control her is less likely to attempt this on a girl he is seeing eye-to-eye with, and especially a girl who's looking DOWN at him. If a teenaged girl stands tall and proud, this will really make a potentially abusive boy think twice about messing with her.
- If you play sports, you can make height work for you. Extra height is an advantage in almost every sport.
- Tall teen girls have a sight advantage; you can see over peoples' heads. This comes in handy in the school auditorium, at movie theatres, concerts, etc. Admit it, this aspect of being a tall teen girl is unbeatable.
So stand TALL and PROUD and love yourself.... xoxox
