Small stature

I have a small stature. Or relatively small anyway. Through this I’ve accepted and allowed myself to believe I’m not as good as others, specifically men whereas I see the ‘typical’ or ‘traditional’ man as having a big or bigger stature.

Why is my stature small? Well I’ve never really gone to a gym and/or lifted weights or anything in terms of building muscle. Although that wouldn’t really increase my stature too much. I see that it’s really just me lol. I mean other than building more muscle for some increased stature, my main stature as me is what it is. And I’m not at a disadvantage or separated spot as a person just because of it. It’s not a curse to have this stature. It’s not a curse to have any particular stature, or any particular..anything. I’m alive. I’m healthy. I’m capable of lots. That is what I’m glad for.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to negatively judge my small stature.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to put myself below others because of having a smaller stature.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe that stature is what makes a person ‘cool’ or ‘not cool’.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define myself by my stature.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to believe I’m not as capable as others with a bigger stature and/or frame as their body.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to put myself at a disadvantage within my mind of having a small/smaller stature compared to the big/bigger stature of others.

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to become brainwashed of what is apparently the ‘typical’ male stature/frame and using this as the reasoning to negatively judge what my stature/frame looks like in comparison to the stature/frame that my body should look like as the typical and in my eyes ‘best’ male stature/frame.

To be continued.

Thanks for sharing, Anthony! Yes, strange that we have certain ideas about what is normal when it comes to height. But, if we look around the world there is wild variation in statures, not even taking into account certain anomalies like the world's tallest men, dwarfism, etc.

Very true Tyler. It's everywhere, not just existent in humans. Although I was also referring to general body size as well, not just height, the whole body and dimensions really. Thanks for sharing.

man, we all know stature doesn't matter!
