Accept yourself for what you are and don't focus on your height. Focusing on growing taller will only make you more self-conscious rather than to think critical. Don't worry about what others say or do and I know the media and society has caused you to feel inferior to others, but you are not. Some of the greatest thinkers and rulers were very short. If they allowed there height to take over, much of what exists today would never come into being. Your self-consciousness thoughts will only have a terrible impact on your overall health and you'll soon find yourself falling for infomercials which promote quick growth at any age from false testimonials. Avoid anything which only triggers you to believe things without having to be critical.

welcome to healthcaremagic forum

At this age, height cannot be increased . As the process of growth of your bones is completed by now.
To make urself "LOOK" taller , you can wear clothing like vertical prints, wear heels, loose weight (if you are overwt), and try to have a confident and positive attitude.
