Topic: Rejection (11/15/04)

TITLE: God Never Rejects his Creations

When I fall in love, I want to make my partner so happy that they never want to leave me. I become whatever it is that they like. If they like fishing, I learn how to fish. If they like motorcycles, I learn how to ride.

I fear rejection from others so much, that I am rejecting myself.

I lived my life just wanting acceptance from other people. Never realizing that I had to accept myself first, the rest will fall into place. This is a hard lesson to learn.

I took a good look at myself. I'm not a bad person! So what if others could not like everything about me.

I read a story about a Christmas ornament who was broken and chipped. Once he meets his maker, who loves him dearly, he finds happiness.

I have come to the realization that God loves me regardless of my faults. He is my Maker. That is all that really matters.

Short, but very much to the point! The thought that trying to be what other people want us to be is rejecting who you are was a new one.
