How does your family take your height?
post #1

I heard a guy on Youtube a few days ago, commenting on how his family always jokes about his height and he never let it bother him when he was younger but now it hurts his feelings. He has asked them to stop and they still do it. Do you have anyone in your family who pokes fun at you over your height? How do you deal with it?

I did. One of my cousins and all his friends would crack jokes. Mario, Might Mouse, Vegeta, ect. Anyone short. It got annoying. I got fed up and ended up punching him. Not a smooth move but he never did it again. We didn't talk almost 2 years after that and when we did, he apologized.

No one in my family ever did anything like this. I can't imagine having someone in my family who did. I mean, that is hitting a bit below the belt. And on someone you care for?

Cut them off. It doesn't matter whether it is freinds, acquaintances or even family. People will only do what you allow them to. If you don't set boundaries, they will overstep them again and again.

I had a buddy growing up who had a friend that used to tease me and I couldn't stand it. After high school I lost touch with my friend on purpose because I just couldn't take it anymore and they were going to the same college so there was no avoiding it.

Wow if my family or friends did anything like this to me, I would be finding new family and friends. We do teasing but it goes all ways. Fat jokes, short jokes, skinny jokes, tall jokes, bald jokes, girly jokes, ect.
