What is the biggest challenge you face socially?
I have quite a few social anxieties. My main one is having people look at me. I've always been tall. I'm 5'11", which I know isn't abnormally tall, but when you're 7 years old and you're at least 6" taller than the rest of your friends, it can feel like you're a bit of a freak.
It wasn't until I was at high school when the boys started getting their growth spurts, and finally I wasn't the tallest person in my school year. However, I've still not felt comfortable with my height, and I tend to stoop quite a bit. My Pilates teacher doesn't approve of the stoop, and I do manage to stand up straight in her classes, but when I get back into the real world, by spine starts to bend so that I can hide away from staring eyes.
I'm slowly coming to terms with it. It's not something I can change so I just have to get used to. I just get a bit paranoid that people are looking at me. I'm quite happy to hide in the background but my height hasn't allowed me to do that. Perhaps I should just embrace my height and stop hiding!
