There isn't much you can do to 'shrink' your tallness, just blame your misfortune on one or both of your parents for inheriting one of their tall genes. :)

Do not be discourage I'm sure you will stop growing soon. Remember there are more guys out there who are 5'11 and over then there are short guys. Your friends are short but do not be self conscious, I'm 100% certain, some of them wish they were taller.

Being tall can be a blessing in disguise as you can put on heaps of weight and no-one will notice. But a person who is 5’6 and under, cannot get away with being too overweight as they do not have the height to balance their chubbiness off. A human earth ball isn't a good look. ;) (an earth ball looks like a massive beach ball that people climb on, it's a lot of fun but you have to be fit to get to the top of the ball).

I read somewhere (wish I had the article so I can give you the link) that working people who are tall do go further in the organisation ladders. Most managers and high flyers in large corporations are not 'little people' pardon the pun. Also too, notice how wealthy some models can be, they make money from being blessed with height, looks etc and use their tallness to their advantage.
