Well, as I looked through the thread index I couldn't help but notice that there weren't any threads that address rejection directly, This surprised me. because this is a site filled to the ceiling with anime fans, and let's face it, we're pretty much in the same social tier as Trekkies.........

Anywho, my question for you is.....

Have you ever been rejected?
if so, How did it feel?
How do you handle rejection?
What/Who were you rejected by?(by schools, the opposite sex, sports teams, etc)

For the sake of not being too general, just talk about the ones that stung the most


Personally, I met rejection head on in full force, very early in my childhood, due to me being a freak of nature,, I wanted to make friends with the other kids, they blew me off, quite cruelly most of the time, and I was never picked out to play sports with my "peers", back then I took it very hard,

But as I got older, I developed what I like to call the "philosphy of Bundyism", as in Al Bundy from "Married with children", Basically, no matter what amount of effort I put into something, I always expect to fail miseralbly (even though I rarely fail), sure it sounds like a stupid philosophy but hear my case.

Ever since I was a kid I always scored in the top percentile of standardised tests in school, and made very good grades, and still do. Despite that, whenever I'm about to take one of them, I always think to myself, "Abel, you're gonna bomb this thing hard". Or whenever I walk into a room full of new people, I automatically think everyone there hates me, until they state otherwise, when a girl flirts with me, I usually think she's just being nice, or has VERY low standards.

I'm rarely ever disappointed or hurt by life, nor do I get stressed out, because I have very low expectations from life, because it's been my firm belief ever since I was a child, that God created me as some form of amusement for him and the angels up there in Heaven, So when I was rejected by the organization I had wanted to join ever since I was 2 years old, after welcoming my dad home after the Gulf war, The Marines, it barely phased me

Wow. you've been through alot. Well buddy, if i knew you, i wouldn't reject you at all.

Yes, i've been rejected for a short while.. it felt really horrible. I'd do anything for another kid to look at me. I'd handle it just by going to the library alot and joining forums. heh.Well, i was rejected by alot of students in my old school, and some of the staff. I'm glad that it's over, and i'm not around such discriminative people. Actually, now that I look back on it, i can't believe that happened. I'm sure that nearly every kid has been rejected once.

Edit: rejection doesn't necessarily mean being dumped by a person. It can be being prejudiced and *cough* stuff like that.

I cut myself.....Vertically.

just kidding. :)

Anyways i don't really handle it well...When i get rejected in the matter of um, things like dating, which happens to me a lot, though i got a "sure" for home coming like a week ago.

I kind of feel embarrassed for about 10 minutes then stop, and get sort of grumpy.

now with rejections like school, most people would take it as a "Oh shi-" or a "[insert god here] DAMN!

dunno any other type of rejections, credit cards? eh you'd just be oh well 5000000 more company's to choose from?

Health insurance rejected for a treatment or an operation cover? i would think of people saying or me like "god dammit, why not?" see me lawyer pls.

Have you ever been rejected? Yes, thanks for bringing up my painful past
How did it feel? It sucked for a while, then it just blew.
How do you handle rejection? I put my fingers in my ears and say (not sing): "lalalalalalalala"
What/Who were you rejected by? ....lalalalala.....
