Little Rejections

by bye2mrwrong

“Oh these little rejections how they add up quickly, one small sideways look and I feel so un-good. Somewhere along the way I think I gave you the power to make me feel the way I thought only my father could. Oh these little rejections how they seem so real to me, one forgotten birthday I’m all but cooked. How these little abandonments seem to sting so easily, I’m 13 again am I 13 for good? I can feel so unsexy for someone so beautiful, so unloved for someone so fine. I can feel so boring for someone so interesting, so ignorant for someone of sound mind. Oh these little protections how they fail to serve me, one forgotten phone call and I’m deflated. Oh these little defenses how they fail to comfort me, your hand pulling away and I’m devastated. When will you stop leaving baby? When will I stop deserting baby? When will I start staying with myself? Oh these little projections how they keep springing from me, I jump my ship as I take it personally. Oh these little rejections how they disappear quickly, the moment I decide not to abandon me.” Alanis Morissette

  1. Far too manyt women engage in negative self talk. You don’t have to own someones negative opinion about you. You need to critically evaluate yourself, work on the negatives and celebrate the positives and be your own best cheerleader.

    Blessings on you and yours
    John Wilder

  2. You’re fine, you’re witty, you write brilliantly. Just remember the future is a blank canvas. You can do whatever you want to do.

    You can be whoever you want to be.

    And because you have chosen it for you it will be fantastic!

    You are so strong. Keep going!! You’re getting there!
