    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I'm tired of wanting something

    so bad, and trying so hard to make it happen over and over. Only to be rejected time and time again. I've cried at least 3 times today so far because of it. It's just not fair!

    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...

    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...

    It really sucks that unfortuantely I couldn't

    fight the feelings of affection towards someone straight. I know they probably aren't interested in me, but I still went in and asked. After getting rejected, I feel like I don't belong anywhere, like a giant hole is just there. Now, every time I walk the hallways and he sees me...

    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...

    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...

    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...
