I am 5'2" tall. I used to be upset for not being a tall guy, at least 5'5" which you already are. But eventually when i grew up facing the criticism, living in isolation, one fine day , i was fed up and decided that i will not react in the way they want me to, but instead i will speak with my skills and talent and that was the deciding factor. I faced every situation with my head up.
A quick look on who am i.
First of all i am very confident of who am i, in whatsoever situation. I always believe that being confident is the key to success.
I worked as mechanical engineer in a multi million overseas project where height is a dominant factor. I changed it when i worked that mind is dominant factor. I worked for 4 years, earned money and quit my well paid job which i invested my savings in my masters to study further.
I have more friends who are 5'8'' to 6' tall. Interesting? i also dated 3 girls. That's more interesting. All were taller than me. That's really interesting.
What i feel when i see a tall person is that all your desire cannot be fulfilled. And that you are unique in yourself. Try to find out how to be master of something you really want to be in your life.
I have set priorities in my life. Whom i want to speak to, whom i need to stay away. Those who used to mock at me, later used to send me invitations request for birthdays, festivals and marriages.
Trust me its like that. I have learnt that being helpful and humble earns a respect that doesn't matter how tall you are. I have got my worked done in flip of phone call or dropping an email because when you speak nobody knows if you are tall or short person on the other end.
So why you are worried? I am thankful to God that i am blessed with such a personality that people never forget me after first meeting and they are happy whenever i meet them again. I have made random friends in trains, locals, metros, cafe's etc. with whom we discuss our passion, talents,
I have my friends band group, that they play live music for me when are in the mood for party.
I have my life, and i love it most. and there are literally many famous personalties in the world who are famous and are short in stature.
Sachin, for example, is cricketing genius. Abdul kalam, our beloved former President of India, and we all know him very well. They were not because of their height. They were, because of their talent, discipline.
Wish you good luck.
