Everything depends on perspective, and how much you're willing to let people know the real you. Some tall folks hunch over, trying to make themselves smaller. Some short folks wear heels, trying to make themselves taller. Me? I don't want a hurt back or sore feet. I want to walk along comfortably, content to let people think whatever they're going to think. I've learned, through a lot of trial and error, that the rewards of being authentic far outweigh the risks.
