    Never Wanted Anywhere...

    Yes I learned at a very young age to take a hint! Not by my family but by everybody else. I was always the one everyone avoided and that sure has never changed not even in here! No one EVER has to come out and say so because I can just tell! Lots of practice. For example, if I've...

    Low Self-esteem May Cause False Alarms

    sometimes, we are oversensitive to the signals of others, and we feel unwanted even if that is not really the case. I spent the early decades of my life with low self-esteem, and I often felt unwanted among friends. By now I know they were true friends, and I was just...

    Very Often.

    It's too bad that I'm a stubborn personality, persistent, and clingy. You think I leave when I'm not wanted? Think again, I stay very much so. Not because I want the pain, it's because running will be more painful for me. So I stay, knowing whenever I'm not wanted :]

    Not Wanted

    I feel it when I am not wanted.  Sometimes, I don't bother and still go to places where I feel like I am not welcomed, and there's other times and places, I do not go anymore.

    I Can Usually Tell :-(

    I can usually tell when i'm not wanted, by the way someone speaks, like the tone of their voice, or how they behave and their little gestures and mannerisms!, :-( Oh! yes, i can certainly take a "hint", when i'm not wanted!,. ;-(
