I’m short and wear spectacles and feel no one talks to me because of the way I look.

Question: I have to wear spectacles. I try wearing lenses but that just takes too much time. I’m short and have now started growth hormone therapy. I feel no one talks to me because of the way I look and I feel left out. I feel because of this I can’t part take in outdoor sport activities, which I love. Teentalker , 13-year-old

When I read your question I immediately identified with my 13-year-old self who was so conscious about wearing spectacles and felt left out. Adolescence can be such a painful time and mine was no exception. I want you to know something. You are beautiful with or without spectacles..

 Here are a few active ways to deal with this:

  • Dig in a little deeper and harder and list all your abilities, interests, knowledge, strengths that you possess.
  • Developing communication skills and initiating a conversation with classmat.....
