Making my way through life at 5 feet tall isn’t always easy – there’s a whole world up there that fellow short girls and I don’t even know about! Being short means heels are always a must, you’re always getting squished into the middle seat (sometimes even asked to sit in the trunk), and…

1. Normal length pants are always too long

You either have to scrunch them, cuff them or pay extra to have them hemmed

struggles short girls will understand

2. And cropped pants are always normal length pants

Which isn’t all that bad… if you’re not looking for cropped pants

3. Having a conversation with 2 tall people in a kind of crowded place?

You may as well be talking to a wall ’cause you can’t hear a single thing!

4. When you’re taking transit, you pray for a seat or a free pole

Because you cannot reach these comfortably

5. The top shelves of all your cupboards are a total mystery to you

Because you can only reach up there with the help of a counter, chair, friend or significant other. You try to avoid at all costs.

6. You wish you had a support system like this at the grocery store…

7. Because people always give you weird looks when you do this…

“Ma’am… can you not?”

8. Concerts are more like listening parties

Because the tallest person always manages to stand in front of you

9. And you’ve totally tried to watch a concert through the phones in the air in front of you

Admit it.

10. Trying to fit your shoes and a tall person in a square Instagram photo is hard

First world problem, but it’s still a short girl’s problem!

11. Trying to keep up while walking with a tall person is like running a marathon

But you’ve totally mastered the slow jog

12. You’re always in someone’s armpit

On the bus, in a hug, you name it.

13. Sun visors are useless to you

Because you’re too short for them to block the sun

14. People are always using you as an armrest
