This can’t be happening. There’s no way my childhood friend has gotten this big right? Do you remember your childhood best friend? The one you did everything with and who knew you better than anyone else? Well imagine if they suddenly became a lot bigger than you. Like a lot bigger. That’s what happened to me when my childhood friend Can’t be this big baka showed up at my school reunion. I was shocked! And a little bit jealous too. In this blog post, I’ll share my story of how my childhood friend got so big and how I’m dealing with it.
My friend is really tall now
At first, I didn’t believe it when my childhood friend told me she had grown taller. I mean she was already pretty tall, to begin with! But then I saw her in person and wow she had definitely shot up a few inches. She’s now taller than me and it’s kind of surreal.
I guess it shouldn’t be too surprising though. After all, she was always the tallest girl in our class in elementary school. Still, it’s strange to see her so tall now she towers over me! It just goes to show how much we’ve both changed since we were kids.
I’m really short
It’s true I’m really short. I remember being the shortest kid in my elementary and middle school class. Even now as an adult I’m still not very tall. And it’s always been a bit of a source of insecurity for me.
Growing up I was always self-conscious about my height. I felt like I was constantly being compared to other kids who were taller than me and that made me feel inferior. It didn’t help that a lot of my friends would make fun of me for being short. They would always say things like “you’re so short you can’t even reach the top shelf” or “you’re so small you look like a child.”
It would hurt my feelings every time they said something like that but I tried to brush it off and not let it get to me. I told myself that it didn’t matter how tall I was and that I was just happy to be alive and healthy.
But even though I tried to stay positive it was hard not to feel self-conscious about my height sometimes. Especially when people would point out how much taller everyone else was than me.
Nowadays I’ve come to accept myself for who I am and I’ve stopped comparing myself to others. And even though there are still times when I feel insecure about my height I know that it doesn’t define me as a person.
We used to be the same height
We were both short for our age and we were always drawn to each other because of it. But now my childhood friend can’t be this big baka. He towers over me not just because he’s grown a few inches taller than me. He’s massive! His arms are as thick as tree trunks and his chest is so broad that I can barely see around him.
I don’t know how he got so big. When we were kids he was thin and wiry. He was never the muscular type even when he started playing sports in high school. But somewhere along the way he transformed into this hulking giant of a man. And while I’m happy for him that he’s found success in whatever he’s doing I can’t help but feel a little jealous of his newfound size.
How did this happen?
There are a few possible explanations for how this could have happened. Maybe your friend was always taller than you and you never noticed because you were the same age. Perhaps your friend had a growth spurt and shot up a few inches while you stayed the same height.
It’s also possible that you’ve gotten shorter as you’ve gotten older. That’s not necessarily a bad thing it happens to everyone! – but it can be surprising when you see someone you used to be the same height as now towering over you.
Whatever the reason it’s clear that your childhood friend has grown up to be a big baka!
We all have to grow up sometime and for our childhood friends that means growing into their own skin. It can be tough to see them change right before our eyes but it’s important to remember that they’re still the same person we’ve always known deep down. So if you ever find yourself feeling a little nostalgic for the good old days just take a look at your childhood friend and know that they’re still the same person you used to know.
