Yes - height matters! The only people who don’t think it does are people who are above average in height. The world looks differently to those who are above average in height. Short people are always looking up, and tall people are continually looking down on those shorter than them – both literally and figuratively.
The teasing for being short may start at a young age. Being short in stature may cause children to be made fun of and suffer bullying as early as elementary school. This type of abuse can continue on through high school and even into adulthood. Hurt feelings over a period of time can result in sadness and a feeling of hopelessness.
