The definition of rejection: "to refuse to accept, consider, submit to, and take for some purpose"
The definition of pain: "An unpleasant sensation occurring in varying degrees of severity as a consequence of injury, disease, or emotional disorder"
What I see in this by definition is the same thing. To refuse is unpleasant sensation what someone does not want to give, share, or even attempt to make you happy. Our world is filled with all kinds of despair and rage; the worst part is most people when for only a moment in time can feel happy only to be shot down more and more; you become the victim of these two words. I truly believe I am the victim and although I have worked so hard at become a better person; there is still that edge where I can easily fall again.
No one should make you feel like you are a nobody that you could be that carpet you walk on everyday and no one notices. No one has the right to inflict pain onto you; no one has the right to use every part of your heart and mind, manipulating you in a way you don't even understand anymore. I know at least a few people who do this, whether they are aware of it or not. I was told once that people who hurt you, not only because you let them but it is because they themselves have something lying inside, hurt or pain and they then inflict it on others. I only wish that these people would realize how much damage one can cause doing this.
How do you become strong and resist this rejection and pain? You work at it; don't expect miracles in one week, or a month, it's a learned behaviour. You have to work at it all the time, everyday of your life. I am a prime example, I work at this everyday but am very susceptible, on the edge lets say, and I still feel crushed when someone injects me with pain.
To you I wish today: Find that strength to build a better you because in the end, you and you alone are standing by yourself.
