I am the shortest living soul in my family after my late grandparents. I barely make it to 5 feet in height. Everyone from my cousins to my classmates and co-workers has bullied and laughed at and joked about my height.

But here is the secret: Tall people need short people in order to prove they are tall. Period.

So before you make fun of the minions in your family or friend circle or workforce, think twice. You might be blowing away your chances of proving how tall you are.

And always remember, people shorter than you will always look up to you with respect no matter what the situation is.

So respect them, even more.
