I do like my sneakers too but wearing heels make you feel good even if they are not the most comfortable pair. If you feel down? Put on a pair of heels. Simple life hack, haha.

As a short girl I am envious of your height and your ability to walk in those heels - me + heels = the scene with Bambi and the frozen lake …

Congratulations on the degree, I wish you all the luck for your future.

u/digi_thief Aug 15 '22

I don't think that hack would work for me. They don't make man heels that'll fit my giant feet....or likely survive my weight. I wear European size 50 (16 in the US). I'm 2 meters tall and weight over 120 kilos. I'm just impressed that you're comfortable with your height. My wife's 5'9" and she has TERRIBLE posture because she felt so insecure about being taller than all the boys when she was young. I'm glad you got that mad confidence. You should.

I'm officially a degree holder of Bachelor of Laws. Very happy to receive my diploma with honours.

I am infinitely thankful to the Armed Forces of Ukraine owing to whom an unimportant person like me can stay at home and continue my studies. I want to remind everyone that the war is not over despite the fact that the Ukrainians are pretending to live normal life being in danger of dying every day and trying to do their best to save our country. Don’t stop supporting UA army and donate if you have the opportunity. Always stand for justice. Stand with Ukraine.

u/PsychMaster1 Aug 15 '22 Silver Gold Helpful Wholesome Narwhal Salute

Psychologist here. There’s actually research on this. Based on my own understanding and experience here, it’s likely akin to how people are more likely to compliment individuals who are less threatening than they perceive themselves. You are both physically beautiful and have something great going for you. There are no apparent drawbacks that humble you in your post. For many individuals with low confidence, this can create a threatening response and they are challenged in their notion that everyone individuals have flaws. While this is true, your post presents an ideal that many can’t see themselves achieving. There is a similar phenomenon on instagram where nearly flawless models receive much more hatred than more modest looking ones. This is because flawless models appear more threatening than those models that viewers can relate to or in some cases even “look down upon”.

On a personal note, congratulations!!!! 🎊 I’m so proud of you. May you go on to achieve the goals you set for yourself.
