Many of us fight demons and a lot of those demons entered us during childhood and never left.

I don't get how you're "still living with this shortness" and explaining it like it is a death sentence. Dude, you're 3 inches taller than me. Where are you living that you are dealing with daily oppression?

that's why i've been on therapy and getting better ever since. Therapy helps you overcome fears, anxiety and worthlessness feeling short.

At 5'6" I can try to lose 15 pounds to get to 155 and improve self esteem. That's what I'm aiming for.

But rite now Im at 169lbs bmi 27.3

This is a shame. There are so many shorter men who are successful actors out there. There are plenty of fat ones too. If you can act, your appearance doesn't matter as much.

^ I noticed that. A lot of men in hollywood are shorter than we think because they need them to be at good camera level with the female co-star.
