Being DIFFERENT is funny in that it’s something that we both crave and fear. I was always taller than just about everyone in my grade, now I’m just taller than about everyone. I was always insecure about being tall, and I even tried some ridiculous things to make myself look more “normal”. Now, I embrace my height, but I still can’t help feeling awkward, weird, embarrassed, and misunderstood every now and then. We all have those moments when we’re just feeling insecure, it’s a part of life. So a “giraffe moment” is one of those inevitable moments where I blabber about my insecurities.
