    nothing happened. Your co-workers ask if everything's okay and you tell them you're just tired. And you're trying to smile. And they're trying to smile.” - Richard Siken

    I'm tired of people rejecting me

    So Depressed

    I'm not sure if all this is in my head. I have been depressed for the past five years I could really say that I don't know the reason but I will be lying. I am so discontent with whom I am. We'll I am disgusted with who I became. I had dreams, hopes and goals I never got to. I...

    Can you imagine never being heard

    and be rejected by this society because of appearance? You hate to go out in public because you are scared of dirty looks and people saying mean things. Your family wishes they could change things, but they are not God. You think only if I had the money to have the best...

    I really wish if there is any thread online

    for rejected people who give up on love. So we can all disguss our life without love for the future. Im sure such people exist its not just me. We could share expiriences on how we have been rejected and how much anger we feel. That would help me so much.

    I am so tired of being rejected.

    Sometimes I used all the rides in my metro card or I lose my metro or I don't have money and I told the woman that work in the train station how I really needed to get home and it's late. I gave her a speech and everything like I was running for president and She plainly said no...

    I wonder sometimes if there is a reason to keep

    pursuing. I have spent most of my life trying to love people. Not saying that I've been perfect, but, I do genuinely love. I am a very committed, passionate, and romantic person. I have so much to give from my heart. I work hard, I'm very honest, I am always thinking of others...

    I am so tired of being rejected.

    It seems like they reject me or I reject them before they can. I do not understand why this keeps happening. My whole entire life has been this way ever since I was a child. And it could be the main reason I have no close friends, because I am so afraid they will abandon me so I...

    I Don't Understand Why

    Someone who had removed me from their circle said -  don't take it personally.  The only way it would not be personal is if everyone had been removed.  I know I'm nice and kind, so I never understand why I'm so easily discarded.

    This Has Been My Story For 15 Years

    Ever since I was twelve years old, I've been getting rejected by the opposite sex. I still remember my very first crush, and working up enough nerve to let him know how I felt. He ended up rejected me, and telling me to my face that I was too ugly for him. I went home crying and...

    Saw a girl at the ice rink today.

    I was like "Damn, just wow." She was perfect. Got her number, found out she's actually 2 years younger than me. I was so stressed out, it wasn't even funny. Checked out her number. Fake. How's that for an ice cold "**** you"!?

    I am most definitely not everyone's cup of tea. I am stubborn, moody, morbid, bipolar, sometimes suicidal, sometimes homicidal, and generally screwed up. While I can be the best friend one can ever have, I can also be the ***** from hell when I am crossed. I am very much a...

    Rejection IS Personal, Whether People Want To Admit It Or Not.

    When you get rejected, a person is rejecting you. Your looks, your mannerisms, your uniqueness. You. Think about it this way. If it's not personal, why do people make up stupid excuses for why they shot you down? If it wasn't personal, there'd be total honesty all across the...

    or lack of transparency of real relationship that lasts. EP seems to have those who do not care about the heart of those they claim they would win.

    I feel sorry for those

    who rejected me. I would give them so much care which they will never get from noone in their lives. Cos im so giving and caring that they will miss out. And later with their cold hearted partners they will be bored, left alone and sad. But i will be gone, they lost me.

    Why is it so difficult

    for us to all get along and be friends? Everything I do for them is always taken for granted; but every mistake I make is exaggerated, as if nobody else makes mistakes. I've pretty much tried everything. I've tried telling jokes, doing favours. I've done everything I've ever...

    Its Not As Bad As You Think

    OK, I have my share of rejection stories. I am 57 and have learned a lot and matured through the years. What I think happens is we put too much importance on what people think of us. If you are suffereing from insecurity, you often want people to validate you. When they reject...
