    My grandparents reject me sometimes.

    They don't like my opinions. And my grandpa thinks I am exaggerating with my phobia and that I just act crazy and am stupid and stuff. ...like 'oh my goood how bad' in an sarcastic way -.- ..but most people don't understand my anxiety disorder..

    I have just started coming to terms with the

    fact I am a transgenedered woman , and my wife has rejected me for it. My heart is be ripped out of my chest. I feel so empty right now. So I'll need to suppress and deny the woman I am or lose the woman I love.

    But you know what? I'm starting to see

    that it's a million times better than being rejected or accepted for someone you're not. When you are being authentic and get rejected, even if the other person says explicitly they don't like you, it's really not personal. I think it's either a sign that they have something...

    I have been reject, linked over numerous times.

    Some women are definitely cool with the wheelchair and everything and can see beyond it. But a lot of times I've gotten weird looks, or women looking straight through me as though I'm not there. I've had moments where I've gone to approach a woman and they seem me coming, look...

    I told my "best friend" more like a "sister"

    what I truly am and she straight up called me crazy, that I was being stupid and dangerous and she did not support me at all and told me I needed to go and get some help. I've learned my lesson about telling people what I am.

    I am a woman who, even trying different things,

    has been rejected over and over for my looks, or lack thereof. Beauty may be only skin deep, but if you don't have it, no one cares to try to see beyond it and get to know the person on the inside.

    Meh... I Have.

    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.

    This is only the most recent in a long line of

    rejections. Being a transgender person in the American South certainly isn't easy, but the most painful moments are those that are born from the people I had once come to trust. I only recently came into contact with someone I once believed to be a friend, and upon seeing me as...
