In my childhood I was very sensitive around my height.

If someone actually voiced insult or derision around my height, I would sometimes feel devastated. I could not, in those times, authentically move beyond my shame to offer the comfort and re-assurance that it was okay – I was just fine and normal.

Instead, I would beat myself up, cursing myself for being born in this shape and form.

I replicated the abuse and shaming from others – towards myself.

As I was became more conscious I began to challenge and enact boundaries towards the self-deprecating and shaming behaviours.
