Rejection - one sad truth
REJECTION - does it hurt?
Is there circumstance when rejection creates happiness? Or simply, rejection only results to gloomy ones? When does someone experiences rejection? How should he / she handle it?
Its Christmas time - gift giving is something but natural especially if it is from the heart.
Unfortunately (I wonder if this is the right term to use), I just had this not so wonderful (embarassing) experience regarding giving gifts.
I do not know if that act of mine is right or wrong. All I know is that I bought that gift way back when we are still together - happy in our relationship. I intended to give it to him on Christmas Day. (I normally buy gifts in advance to avoid the holiday rush). But sad to say before the month of December, we broke up.
I asked myself, should I still pursue giving my gift or not. When I asked my friends and a collegue if is it okay for me to give it to him or not, ALL of them said that I must not give it to him anymore. According to them, its awkward and it seems that I was not yet able to get over him.
I followed my heart even though no one agreed and give it to him discreetly. I do not expect anything from him. But to my dismay, he wrote me an email add and told me that he can't accept it given that we are no longer connected and according to him, we already have separate lives. I cried in my desk upon reading his email. My heart was broken again.
I was speechless. Needless to say, I replied to his email and said - throw it, rather than return it.
I now deeply wonder, friends can be lovers but lovers can not be friends. So sad. But in my case, it is true . . .
