Are You Satisfied With Your Height?

We've heard of expressions such as "Height is Might" "Small but terrible" "cute and petite" "tall as a model" but we have been given by the Lord different heights. They say the genes makes the difference while others say its vitamins and food we take in. Whatever, we are more often than not told that we should thank God for whatever He has given us including the height he gave us to be. But human nature being what it is, there seems to be a lot of people who wish they were taller or shorter. For my nationality, I am considered taller than average but i have never found any reason not to be satisfied and happy with my height. I always look at the positive side of things. How about you, are you satisfied with your height or wish you were shorter or taller, as the case maybe.

Actually, im quite satisfied about my height, Im not very tall, but not extremely short- pretty average. But yeah my boyfriend on the other hand is about the same size as me... give or take an inch. I think he's grown used to the fact hes not as tall as most men... but he'd look so different if he was taller... and hes beautiful the way he is... To be honest, really really tall guys arent that attractive in my opinion. Maybe thats just me though.

That's being honest. Height is not an assurance of looking better. Your boyfriend might indeed not look so beautiful if he were much taller. There's always something which makes up for not being so tall I guess.

Most short people really wish they were taller maybe because of the attitude of taller people towards shorter ones. But if that is the height that God gave you, maybe it was for a purpose and maybe instead of wishing for something that's not possible or can't be changed unless you resort to some kind of operation, why don't you look at those things which you can do because of your height and which you can't be able to do if you were taller. It might make you happier.

Yes there are all sorts of sizes in this world. Some very tall that I have seen and some quite short. I believe that I am of average height and I feel that I am satisfied with it. I doubt that I am going to grow much taller at the age I am. Of course there have been times I wished I was taller in order to reach something but I can just use a ladder. I am almost 5'4". Kind of average height for myself.

That's the right attitude. Not being so tall does not mean you can't do things which taller people can do. While God may have given us a shorter height, He has also provided other things which we can use to make up for the short height.

I used to wish that I was taller but now I am satisfied with my height. It has "grown" on me lol. (How is that for an ironic statement). Seriously, I like how I look now. I guess the older I have gotten, the more I realize that little things like that don't really matter.

That's true. Height is just a physical attribute that doesn't make the man or the woman. it's our attitude, it's something inside us which cannot be measured in size or height which makes us what we are and we should not let our height, whether tall or short give us a negative attitude.
