1. First of all, bathroom mirror selfies are a bitch.

Like really, who is using these mirrors for selfies??? HAGRID?

2. We have no option but to stand on chairs and things to get a good one.

3. Even Mother Nature trolls you.

4. If you're a shortie and not standing in the front row of a group shot, forget it.

So you're always shoved in the front.

5. Even large props can eclipse your entire body.

I was on my tippy toes & could barely see πŸ˜’ #shortpeopleproblems

6. Taking pictures with younger siblings after a growth spurt is the worst.

I mean I'm older! It's only fair that I be taller.

my sister is 16..what is actual life 😭😭😭 #shortpeopleproblems

7. You're used to everyone just picking you up to get you in a frame.

8. If you crop pictures for Instagram, they start looking weird.

9. You may be a beast on the field but in front of the camera, you'll always be a hobbit.

10. Sometimes it gets in the way of your job.

Shout out to this bench for giving me a lift. #AnythingForAGoodShot #ShortPeopleProblems #…

11. And it might be hampering your progress.

I CANT STOP LAUGHING... POOR ALLY πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #ShortPeopleProblems

12. But you've gotten good at improvising solutions.

13. Sometimes your short arms won't even let you fit your whole face in a selfie.

14. But your life changed the minute you got a selfie stick.

GOOOOD MOAAARNIN!!! From me, my love & my new selfie stick ❀ #selfiestick #ShortPeopleProblems

15. You find yourself on your tippy-toes every time you're in front of a camera.

When you're trying to be tall enough for a picture #shortpeopleproblems @amanda__1129

16. Or standing on boxes.

.... Height challenged much #ShortPeopleProblems heels aren't enough, I need my big girl box too πŸ˜‚

17. Or skateboards.

When everyone else in the photo is tall and u just wanna be around their height @inunobxkx #shortpeopleproblems

18. But years of trial, error, and innovation have made you a pro at showing off your most flattering angles.

19. And now you're pretty OK with being small, TBH.

You know you're short when your whole body fits in a selfie! #shortpeopleproblems #shortpe…

So the next time we see a camera, we'll be there...soon.
