    Well, first I get rejected,

    usually by my parents, but I continue being myself anyway, so it's all good.

    I have been rejected

    for all my faults and failures. People (friends and family alike) have not embraced me for who I am.. Human with faults just like their own. I am so tired and weary of being rejected for my faults. Why can't people just accept me for the kind, caring, honest, loving soul that I...

    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...

    When you're transgender,

    queer, a drag queen, a punk, an expressive artist, pagan, gender nonconforming, sex embracing, free, and generally deviant in nearly every aspect of your life, you get a lot of opportunities for that.

    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...

    My whole family has gradually come to reject me

    and ostracize me. I haven't done anything to them, but I stick out as different and they dislike me for that. I'm the awkward autistic one who is easier to ignore than engage with. I've put a lot of effort into trying to build a stronger relationship with them, but I've now come...

    My family doesn't like me.

    Don't worry, they love me. They just don't like my person. I'm a mildly emo punk rocker who has a bisexual girlfriend and doesn't like sports, and my family doesn't like me for that and I'm kinda sad. My friends accept me, and that's good. I just want my family to accept the...

    My mother is not accepting me

    for who I am. I'm a proud transman and my mother is embarrassed of me and it feels like i'm always in her way. She's been rejecting me for 2 months now, since I started my transition, and I don't know what do to. How can you treat your child that way? she always told me that...

    I grew up being rejected,

    I had to get used to it when I was little. For years I was the only kid in the entire grade who was an only child and I was the only kid for years who had divorced parents. I still remember people telling me I wasn't a real kid because they thought I didn't have a dad even...

    All my life I've been ostracized,

    rejected and bullied for being autistic. Even by family. I never get that bond or sense of belonging that most people seem to have.

    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 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...

    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.
