For me the notion of standing tall is so powerful and multifaceted. I should first mention that you don’t need to be tall in order to stand tall. In fact, when your centre of mass is lower, it can be easier to hold your ground. And figuratively, someone who stands tall is one who is courageous. Refuses to retreat in the face of danger or adversity. One who is strong, stable, unyielding, dependable, and centred.
