As you may be aware I am only 4 foot 9 inches in height, small and yet well formed. I am in fact a very confident and outgoing person. I feel that my height has affected the way people treat me throughout various areas of my life. Being small and getting people to take you seriously in everyday life is a battle in itself. I can’t deny that the amount of respect I gain throughout the day from peers, colleagues and complete strangers is directly linked to the size of my heels. I used to only ever wear a shoe with a heel. I so badly wanted to grow and to be of average teenage height. That word average scares me because in height I lack 4, 5 or 6 inches to achieve what I believe to be ‘normality’. But then I realised that being small is a part of me. It’s a part of me that I have learned to love. If I wasn't small then I wouldn't be me. I was once told that what I lack in height I make up for in personality. But ultimately learn to love who you are; small, tall, plus size, thin. Just be you. You can and will achieve.

No-one can wear heels forever its painful and unnecessary.
