    So many people are so shallow it is not even funny then look at how I dress in jeans and tee shirts and the see ink on my arm but few ask about it or want to get to know me

    It happens every day.

    My wife does not want me she doesn't want intimacy. She just looks at me and says no matter how much I give you it's never enough. I'm tired of being rejected

    Wrong Place, Wrong Time

    I'm a liberal, a deist, I believe in gay rights, and I'm a secularist. So far so good. But put that in a Middle Easter country nowadays? You have no idea what an abomination they consider me - and the likes of me - here!

    Burns...

    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...

    On Request I Will Share, I Try Not To Think About These Things Too Much, It Will Only Get Me Down

    I was rejected for who I was starting early in life. At age 6 I was taken to a psychiatrist because I apparently was considered by my family and/or teachers to be abnormal in some way, and according to them I had ADD and needed meds. Interestingly, and I wonder if it was related...

    Dear Future Wife,

    Dear Future Wife, I have to admit and it’s not easy saying this, but I have been a broken man and alone for quite some time. In the past I have given my heart out on a silver platter to those whom I felt I could trust and love, but only to have it handed back to me postage due...

    I get rejected by my family

    for being who I am. They believe that I have a **** personality but, that's because they can't stand to see me or other family members be theirselves. Weird, right? I get threatened if I don't change who I am but, I don't change who I am because I am me.

    .A few of those instances were: -When I was around 9, I was rejected and ignored by a group of girls I wanted to befriend and even worse yet, we were the same race and culture. -For my appearance. It still hurts to explain this one...so I'm going to skip it. -For my sexuality...

    I've been rejected soooo many times. Mainly by strangers but also by my "friends" and "family" as well. It hurt at first but after awhile I got used to it. I get over it fairly quickly now... If people can't accept you for who you are, SCREW THEM.
