    Rejected

    This is hard to write about, but if I don't let it out of me I feel like I'm going to explode. This morning I wake up, my husband is rubbing up next to me... obviously wanting sex. He goes to the restroom and comes back to bed and takes off his pants, then I go to the restroom...

    But I'm learning to deal with it!

    As a child, I was seldom told no by my loving family. Then I entered the world of strangers and failed to realize I would not be treated the same. I used to think I was better then other people and would become silently enraged when they got higher opportunities then me. Now, I...

    Not The First, Not The Last ó_ò

    A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success – Bo Bennett I’ve been rejected more times than I care to remember (lol) and even though I prepare myself for it, KNOWING a negative outcome is more than likely, I still get the wind knocked out of me...

    I Love Being Rejected By Day9

    I hate being rejected. It's horrible. My friends always say I'm a great guy and even my girl friends say any girl would be lucky to have me. They point out my good qualities. I don't think I'm a bad guy. I think I'm a great catch, so why is it that when I ask out a girl I'm...

    When Rejection Is Not The End-Game...

    None of us likes to be rejected, but it is a fact of human existence that we will be rejected sooner or later. My story of rejection goes back to my childhood. I was never "good enough" as a person to be loved for who I am. My acceptance was always based on my performance...

    What Is Wrong With Me?

    I don't even know where to write this, but need to write it to feel better. I feel so lost in my life at the moment. I make plans with friends (I don't have that many) and then they end up canceling on me. I never ever want to cancel anything I promise. Keep your damn promises...

    Seems like when I try to move on,

    my heart pulls me back in a hole. I still am hooked on my ex crush and it hurts. He would have dated me if it wasn't a complicated triangle between ex co-workers, two women, one guy, lots of emotions. I got rejected because I was a bit clingy, but honest, I didn't lie and was...

    Ok.

    You pull back from our kiss and sigh. You take my face in your hands and I know what's coming. The apology, the "I really want to, but we can't". You tell me to look at you. I try to turn away but you cup my chin and turn me to face you. I close my eyes. "Look at me. Please...

    Rejecting Me

    I do not consider myself beautiful or clever. My body is it's age. I have self confidence issues and no matter what I do I cannot ever truly love myself. I have a wall around me that protects me from harm. I am truly ugly on the inside. I have some really beautiful friends...

    The Worst Feeling

    Rejection is the worst feeling ever. It brings along humiliation, depression, sense of worthlessness. I am feeling very rejected right now; it is a rejection that keeps me from having what I want the most. Oh, how it hurts and how familiar it is. I feel like I want to die...

    Ever since I was 12 years of age,

    I've lived with my father. My mother left me with my dad. I have three other siblings that were also hurt by my mothers actions. I've been rejected by her on many occasions, sometimes even seeking support and affection. I'm a current year 12 student working my butt off to get...
