Don't take this too blunt, I really dislike sseeing people bullied.
You shouldn't give a damn. I even think a height such as yours is admirable. I'm 4,9... I've been bullied for a while to. When it gets tough, just hold on to the thoughts that you also have admirers. Me, for example.
wow... you have a great height.... you should be proud of....back in school, i was skinny and my classmates were used to make fun of me por calling me bones... but i had never regret because my perception is i am what i am... and i think they were all jealous!!! never seen a skinny huh!!! if they call you giant just call them "tinnies are you jealous of my height" and happy birthday in advance
Kids can be mean in high school. Just be confident in who God made you. How you feel about yourself is the most important. Try to ignore them. Eventually they should get over it. Remember, your height does have advantages. My wife, from the Philippines is 5'3". She often ask me to get tings she can't reach. I wish you a very happy birthday. Feel free to have an extra piece of cake or scoop of icecream for me. :)
Hi sorry this is long but i think i can help :) All the above conselhos these ppl have given you is true. I've never been tall- ive always been quite short and slim and bullies have found that amusing too. Bullying like this can be easy to deal with in the right frame of mind, because it is obvious that they are jealous.
To get you started, Here are some facts about being a tall girl- * You don't have to wear high uncomfortable stilettos to parties, so you can concentrate on having a good time, and dancing will be mais comfortable. you can lol when the bullies fall flat on their faces. * It's true that some girls are paranoid about being taller, so this is probably the cause of most of your bullying. * The tall boys are easier to kiss ;) * You can put the bully's bag on a high shelf and watch them try to jump and get it like a muppet *Most catwalk modelos are tall * Most boys like tall girls. lots of them say their idea of a perfect girl height is 'tall but not taller than me' and i doubt you are taller than most boys. the dude i like is 6 ft. * Lots of people associate being tall with being powerful * It may be because the bullies find you intimidating, which isn't a bad thing.
And also, 5'8 really isnt giantly tall for a 17 ano old. the average is about 5'6 but normal is anywhere from 5'4 to 5'8 so you are fine. One of my friends is 16 and 5'8 and all the boys amor her cos she's a lovely sunny person and she always makes sure she looks nice. i know all the girls are dead jealous of her, and i reckon thats whats happening to you. Remember, the key is not to let them see it get to you, even if it does. Be confident, make sure you do your hair and wear your makeup, be friendly and put out a confident vibe so the bullies will feel less powerful to say anything to you. and if they do then just remember they're sad with nothing better to do, and if they call you something like giant, You laugh in a 'wow-youre-so-pathetic' kind of way, then say something like 'yeah, like you wish you were', and walk away before they can say anything else. if they do say anything else, just smile in a smug way. that will make them feel like this little. trust me gurl, you'll be fine ;) and dont forget to do these things for back up: *keep a diary of every dia and the bullying that happens, wheni happens and who is doing it. name names! * tell a teacher / tutor, tell your parents, and confide in your best mate if she's trustworthy. Good luck, hope it helped. ;) here's a link you might be interested in: link Lottey x
Would you rather be called tiny? Like Edward Elric? All kidding aside, you should be happy that you are unique and take pride in that. Toss the teasing aside and just sit back and laugh at those who make fun or tease. Because on the inside they are missing something that is being filled por the joy they get in teasing you. You are making them complete and that is a good thing.
p.s. the pic is ed elric the tiniest animê person EVER!!! lol
Look down at them, laugh boldly and walk away. Call them midgets.
I don't think 5'8 is really tall anyway. This person at school is like 6'1 and a girl... and like 15 years old. You'll probs stop growing really soon, and men find 5'8 women rlly attractive :) so dont worry :)
Yeah well, I'm the smallest person in the universe...I don't think I grow any mais and I am only 15. You should just ingnore it, being that tall you could probably take them all out in one swing...god I wish I was tall...I may be the smallest girl in school. Anyway yeah just tell them to shut up!
Ok, always remember you are beautiful. I stand at 5'5''- ish and I hate it; I wish I was 5'8''!!! Anywho, look down at them with a smile on your face and say, "Hey, how's the weather down there?" when they make a mean comment about your height. Be proud your tall and don't have to make up for it with heels like I do!!! :)
this is actually something you should be glad about they are probally making fun of you as a risk to see if your a steriotypical gentle giant the seguinte time someone messes with you just do a power slam on them and become the main of the school the one all admire
dude you shouldn't feel bad about your height, i mean your 5'8 so am I...only difference is im a girl and if you went to my school you wouln't feel bad cause the majority of the students here are giants and i feel short campared to them ...and where the same height so don't feel bad.
