Hello, everyone!

I just added my new article entitled "Rejection and Depression."

It hurts like crazy, and it can destroy your self-esteem. Could rejection be to blame for your depression?

You can check out the article at the link below:
Rejection and Depression

I hope you enjoy the article. Feel free to comment on it, or on any other subject you'd like to discuss.

Have a great week and TAKE CARE OF YOU! smile

Exactly Kitten, We all do get rejected at some point of our lives or the other. You just can't predict who is going to reject you and when. It can be just anyone, your friend, your family member your colleagues, just anyone. It is also very hard to explain and console a person who has undergone such experience because there is a large difference between saying and doing.

Great article Kitten! Trust is so hard! Especially if you have been dumped on over & over and aren't making good decisions. And it is too easy to feel sorry for yourself and think you are just unlucky.

That's true, Kaycee. My sweet daughter who is 19 has had her little heart broken over and over, and it just hurts me so much. I see her going through the same things I went through for so many years, and I wish I could just take all that pain for her, but I can't. All I can do it try to encourage her in that if this didn't work, that means there's something better out there for her. And, of course, I try to make sure she understands that she deserves the best--that she shouldn't settle for just anyone. That's how we get into trouble. If we don't believe we deserve the best, we settle for much less, and end up getting hurt. But even if we do everything right, there's no guarantee we won't get hurt. But in order to enjoy life, we have to take chances.

Connie, trust is so difficult for me. Like you said, once you've been hurt, especially if it's multiple times, it makes you wary. But that is part of what I wanted to get across. Many times, we trust too soon. People shouldn't be trusted as soon as they come into our lives. Even the Bible says (can't tell you where! lol!) that we shouldn't trust someone who hasn't proven himself to be trustworthy. But we have to trust a little bit in order to give a relationship a chance. I think it's healthy to keep your guard up, to a point. Don't lay your heart and every detail of your life out there for someone unless you're pretty sure it's safe. I say "pretty sure," because I don't think you can ever know for sure. Anyone could hurt you, but we can't live our lives in a tower, with 12-inch thick walls! Being hurt is hard to handle, but unfortunately, it is part of life.

And as always, Connie--Thank you! smile

I know what you mean about wanting to save your kids heartaches. But I guess if everyone learned from someone else's advise we would all be perfect!

You're right. Unfortunately, we all have to make our own mistakes. And in some cases, we have to make them over and over again before we learn anything!

Brandi told me today that she's supposed to have a date tomorrow night. I want to be happy about it, but I'm thinking the guy might bail on her, or just not call afterward...you know, the typical guy stuff. I know she has to experience these things and learn how to deal with them in her own way, but the Mom in me wants to protect her. Man, it's tough!

Just had that feeling, Connie, and guess what!! He bailed on her! I had "friended" him on Facebook so I could keep an eye on him. He told Brandi that he was sick with a migraine & upset stomach, but on FB, some of his friends were asking him about poker that night, and he said he couldn't because HE HAD OTHER PLANS! AND THIS WAS AFTER he told her he was sick!! Typical jerk! AAARRRGGGHHH!! mad

Excellent article, Kitten. So many people experience depression due to rejection -- even when the rejection happened years ago, it can still affect their lives and feelings of depression. Your statement that "maybe it was just not meant to be" is a good way to remind one's self that it was "not me that was rejected, it was just not meant to be". Very good thoughts!
