    Reason

    There is always a reason for rejection. That reason may or may not be something to do with you.

    don't be scared of rejection.

    There are so many awesome people in the world(meeee!! haha! jk) and all you have to do is look. it's not like one person's opinion defines you. you define you. If that person doesn't like you for you, then you wouldn't be happy with them anyway.

    This is exactly what I feel

    when I try to get close to my husband and he pulls away! Why do I even bother any more? It's not like he is going to change..... I guess it's still that need of being wanted regardless of who it is....

    I feel as if on this campus I'm "not black

    enough" to fit in with my own ethnic group and I'm somewhat discriminated against by many of the other backgrounds because of my skin tone. :(

    It hurts so bad. I try not to let it bother me.

    I try to think that it's not me, but it just makes me feel not good enough. I wish we could turn off feelings for a time.
