How I Contribute to My Own Rejection

This is what my therapist want me to write about. How I contribute to my own rejection. I believe I expect that things are always going to go wrong, so I guess that can be seen as a negative person. I know I am very compassionate, so that not a problem. I really don't like myself, so maybe that comes across. To me is seems most people like me, but I just can not let anyone close. I tend to push people away I think. I fear rejection more than I need to. I don't know. I going to have to think about this one.

Very good topic to ponder. This was brought up in my t session today as well. Well, basically it is always brought up in one way or another along with my lack of self worth.

Blessings to you dear one. Thank you for sharing!

Wanda, sometimes I think we expect to be rejected so we act in such a way that we almost make it happen. I know in my life, I have often pushed friends away. I am afraid of what they will ask of me, I am afraid of opening up to people. Thanks for sharing this. You are not alone!

We push away because it is too frightening to trust. Being secure for too long produces insecurity... I think...? A post in itself...

Your therapist has sure given you something to think about! I'm sorry you feel rejected by others, or that you're having a hard time letting people close-- that's really tough to do. I hope you know that online you come across as caring, intelligent (emotionally and otherwise), honest and strong. Basically someone who I'm very glad to know (even if I only "know" you from your blog and your comments on my blog). I hope you realize that you have a lot to offer other people.

Best,
NOS

For me, I know I have pushed people away before they could reject me. I think that is a common tactic. This is very honest and aware of you to raise these questions. You are brave. Thanks for being you.
