Has this happened to anyone else? In grade 5 I was a head taller than all my peers. I haven’t grown since then, and now those same kids tower over me.

My friend. He hit 5 foot 10 quite early on and just... stopped. It was bizarre to witness.

Yes, I was taller than most girls growing up, but now I'm just average.

Jeez. At least he’s somewhat normal height. When did he stop growing?

well i remember measuring ourselves in year 3, i was 7 and i was 144cm which is very tall for a 7 year old. i was even taller than my brothers at that age. i was a small baby but still managed to grow a lot, i think i had an early growth spurt. i stopped growing at 11 probably at 5'6. so ye i was pretty tall at 11 as well. but now i'm not short, i'm just above average.

No. I used to be short, and I'm still short. Be glad you had even a little bit of glory
