Self acceptance: I wish i could help but nothing will help you grow at this age. Bones grow from the growth plate, which close between age 17-21. Once the growth plates have closed it is impossible to grow even a millimeter. Since it is impossible to grow it is important to accept this and know that you can have a happy & successful life at your current height. Consider counseling or homeopathy if you need help!
