I Have Been Rejected For Who I Am

The world has decided to criticize my life and being simply for my beliefs, emotions, virtues, ideas, etc. 2,403 People

    When I was a freshman in High school,

    some girls from my dance class asked me if I was virgin just because I had a boyfriend. I told them yes, and they started laughing at me. I guess it's a crime to has morals.

    there was the quote, "You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything." I can't remember who said it, but I've always thought it was true. Some of my beliefs are part of who I am- not all of them, because there are things like politics and various causes that are...

    Wait What?

    Um... I thought that's what ALL rejection was- someone discarding us because who we are is not what they want? Am I wrong?

    I think this is often the worst kind of pain. You are the only version of yourself there is and many people spend years trying to be accepted for who they are. For someone to then reject you for the personality you have, or the things you say is a massive blow to anyone's self...
