It truly is a "grass is greener" thing. I am also very tall, 5'9 which can be good AND bad. I often envy shorter friends who are more petite, wear their heels and are typically curvier than I am. It is viewed as more feminine. I have learned to love my body at 21 but still, I wouldn't mind being a couple inches shorter. Instead, I feel lanky, masculine and awkward at times. I've also been told my stature intimidates others and make me harder to approach.. not a good thing to hear.
Also, the whole "you should be a model" is flattering through childhood but once you become an adult and are seriously pursuing career aspirations it can be extremely hard to be taken seriously. I am currently wrapping up my third year in economics degree and have been often told, "I didn't know you were so smart, you don't really look like it" and "why don't you just drop out and model?" As if all I am good for is an outer appearance and not my hard work/intellect. My accomplishments are either shocking or unnoticed.
This isn't a "pity the tall girls" post, but I am just saying there are pros and cons no matter what shape/size you are, you just have to make the best of it and love yourself.

"I trust what you are doing though…I just see it a little differently.
I don’t see it as you stepping away from the fire. I see it as the fire directing your course.
No matter how airy or earthy or watery you become... to many of us you will always be...a super nova."
