She Can’t Help But Feel Like It’s All Her Fault That Her Teen Son Is Pretty Short And Beginning To Resent His Height

He wanted a son who would grow up to be just like him, and the son that they have couldn’t really be more different from that vision her ex had.

“I also feel very guilty over this because I come from a short ethnicity, and I’m 4’11”/150 cm myself. Is all of this my fault?” she wondered.

“Every time I ask for advice from my sister or paid professionals on how to make my son happier and more fulfilled, it turns into an awkward session for everyone involved because of the embarrassing factor.”

“It’s like people don’t want to admit “yeah, it really sucks” but can’t circumvent their feelings about it, which ends with a plethora of condescending platitudes.”

And when the advice she receives boils down to people telling her that her son should just focus on liking who he is, she can’t help but feel resentful of their words.

Her son does not need to do anything in her eyes to improve who he is, as he already is a wonderful human being who just is struggling with his height.

“How am I supposed to move on with this issue?” she asked.
