11 Petite Girl Struggles That Are Very, Very Real

Big girls don't cry—because they never have to deal with any of this.

Being born with a tiny frame isn't all rainbows and unicorns. Sure, you're effortlessly cute, and you can easily manipulate people into doing things for you because you're so frail and fragile (heehee, kidding!), but being an almost grown-up lady trapped in a child's body is pretty hard work. When you're a little girl in a big world, there are so many high shelves you can't reach, pairs of jeans you can't wear, and short-people jokes you can't escape from. But just because you're small doesn't mean you can't have a giant sense of humor, so let's take a lighter look at all these #tinyhumanproblems—and prove that what you lack in height, you totally make up for in fun!

 1  On you, crop tops are just regular tops.

What do you mean I can't show off my flat tummy???

 2  Your little sister—who's freakishly tall for her age—keeps stealing your clothes.

And your mom's all like, "Sharing is caring, sweetie pie."

 3  Stores that carry a Petite line fill you with an embarrassing amount of joy.

Also, the salesladies of those stores are on a first-name basis with you.

 4  You know those oversized totes that look so chic right now? Dude, you can LIVE in them.

With plenty of leg room, to boot.

 5  The same goes for maxi dresses. Which you also secretly refer to as tents.

Hello? Hello? I'm in here!!!

 6  Grade school boys try to flirt with you. The operative word is "try."

LOL, AS IF!

 7  When you wear distressed jeans, the rips always end up on your shin. Every. Single. Time.

Um, those aren't my knees?

8 Shoe shopping is a constant source of disappointment. Why don't they make more size 5s?!

But finding a pair that fits is always a little (get it, get it?) piece of heaven.

 9  Your titas are constantly telling you, "Pwede ka sana mag-model kaso ang liit mo."

Thanks a lot. Kayo na po perfect. Love you.

10 You're kind of scared of tall people because they can seriously injure you.

Bang bang all over you.

11 Unless your valid ID is with you at all times, you can't watch an R-18 movie or get into a club with your friends. #superFOMOforever
