I have a mate who is 6'6" and built like a truck and for a very long time he seemed to struggle to not define himself by his size. It was quite irritating TBH and surrounded in false bravado but he's stopped doing it more recently as he's found his feet a bit with his family etc... makes him much more pleasant to be around.
Everyone here is a midget compared to my old workmate (from about 15 years ago....) Jay anyway. 7'2", and skinny as a rake.
He HATED it mind you, because all he got was comments from customers and strangers about his height. "Wow, you're tall" ALL DAY LONG.
he got proper sarcastic to customers after a while. "Oh, am I? Thank you so much, i was wondering why the floor seemed so far away. Nobody has ever mentioned it before, so you have changed my life".
Midgets everywhere he looked. A whole world of midgets and the tops of midgets heads.
I have developed a pronounced hunch after living in my grandparent's house for about a decade, the doorways weren't really made to accommodate anyone over 185cm. It's become somewhat of a problem with me flinching at the slightest contact of anything with my head (like those dangly handles in public transports, for example).

All expressed opinions match those of my employers, hail satan
Yeah that sound like the kind of tall that would be really problematic for your day-to-day life.
The midget echo chamber is real.
I'll be enjoying my early grave, back issues and head bumps - thank you very much!
Also special shoutout to everyone who's ever had to stand behind me during gigs : sucks to be you m8
The only real issue is head bumps. All of the others are piss easy to avoid with just exercise. Not like you manlets ever got picked in gym class so you don't even know how to exercise.
Office gym culture is real and awful, do not submit to the fitness fad
