Rejection Hurts

Rejection hurts

Even when I pretend it doesn’t 

Even when I laugh it off 

Brush my jacket clean 

Have a bath 

Drink some tea

Read lines of poetry

And still 

In those quiet moments

In the deepest of hearts 

I crave love

I crave belonging 

I crave acceptance 

And rejection

  1. Of course it does. No one likes rejection. I think maybe it’s okay to feel what you are feeling and be yourself no matter how that shows up for you! Let me know if you need me…you know how to find me! ❀
