“I feel rejected. I feel like nobody cares about me. I feel ignored. I feel disconnected from life. I feel disconnected from the world. I feel like I have no friends. I have no friends. I feel like nobody understands me. I don’t feel important….”
Are you now or have you been thinking any one of these statements or thoughts recently? If so, you need to ask yourself WHY.
One of the reasons you are probably thinking so irrational here is because the Devil has a foothold in your life and or you might be running after something you may very well not find at this point in your life. If you run after something, you fall short. Let it come to you. Take small steps and climb the ladder of success.
You must realize that life isn’t over. It’s just BEGUN. You have a long ways ahead of you and if you start thinking this stuff now, what will happen next year? The following year? Or even Five years down the line?
The devil likes to use people to get under our skin. If you feel like you have no friends or feel ignored, it’s probably because they are only using you. Do they call you on a regular basis or maybe a couple times a week? Do they offer to do things for you in return or offer to do anything for you at all? You KNOW when a friend is really your friend or is just only calling or texting or emailing you for something. Then, it just becomes a constant pattern and you start to feel used. You KNOW when they are a true friend or not.
If you are saying to yourself, “Nobody cares about me,” you are wrong. There are people praying for you right now this very minute. I mean, I’m writing this blog in hopes you find it so you can read it and be helped in some way. You see, I care. You can’t see other people or hear them, but they are praying for you right now in this damaged world. If I didn’t care, I wouldn’t be taking my time writing this blog in hopes you find it, in hopes it would help you. I mean, I COULD go and play with my Wii right now, but I choose to help you instead.
If you feel rejected, why? What has someone done to you in order for you to think that way? Were you trying to get what you wanted and didn’t succeed? What was their motive to turn you down? What were you hoping would come out of the situation? Maybe they weren’t trying to outright reject you in a sense, but were maybe trying to tell you in a nice way they weren’t interested at the time.
We can feel rejected because we can’t get what we want. Stop trying to get what you want. If you’ve tried already and failed, then stop. Review the steps you’ve taken to try and get what you want and go from there. What have you done to try and succeed?
We can feel rejected in relationships, by our girlfriend, boyfriend, husband, wife, significant other, friends, etc. Any relationship you have with someone isn’t considered a PERSONAL relationship so to speak, it’s a one on one relationship. That’s really what a relationship is.
People sometimes feel rejected all the time; it’s not an uncommon thing, but there’s always SOMETHING that makes them feel this way. There’s ALWAYS something that makes you feel rejected.
Why do people feel rejected? Good question. It’s because they were hoping to get something out of what they were trying to do at the time and didn’t succeed very well. Being unsuccessful doesn’t mean you have to feel rejected by someone. It means that it’s not GOD’s perfect timing for your life. There’s a whole life ahead of you and if you go ahead and feel rejected now, what will life be like if you keep continuing to think that thought?
It’s important to try again for a second or maybe even third time and if all else fails, LOOK UP! Look to GOD because he will guide you in your life, EVERY step of the way! You probably haven’t been doing that from the start, but it’s ok. One day, it’ll all click and you’ll understand.
GOD is never wrong. Once you have the gift of the Holy Spirit, the spirit leads you my friend. The spirit is pure. The spirit is just. The spirit is AMAZING and you’ll feel like you are floating on cloud Nine with no worries at all once you’ve become manifested with the Holy Spirit.
You may be saying to yourself, “I feel rejected by my boyfriend, I feel rejected by my girlfriend, I feel rejected by my wife, I feel rejected by my husband.” This is ok. You’ve already admitted that there might be a problem. Chances are, if you are feeling rejected, you might be being rejected or maybe you just took something the wrong way. The spirit living within you is never wrong though, so it’s best to ask questions about these things. If you are feeling a certain way, you need to address your feelings and say, “Honey, I’m feeling rejected by what you said, or what you’ve done. Can we talk?” If they say, “NO” you might have bigger problems to fry.
First of all, you don’t have to feel alone. You are NOT alone. You are NEVER alone. The devil likes to put that thought into your head and once you start to think it, it’ll become a repeated thought and eventually make you depressed with constant sadness. Nobody likes to be sad all the time. It’s ok to be sad every so often because this is a normal feeling God gave us, but feeling sad almost every minute of the day would be considered depression.
So how do you stop feeling alone? You have to commit your life to Christ. This way you will find GOD and everything will start to make sense. You might have been in that isolation state of mind and hiding from everyone, but this makes for the devil to lie to you even more! If you isolate yourself from everyone, it won’t help you. You’ll have free reign to think more, but the devil will just plant more nasty thoughts into your head.
Take up your cross at all cost. Don’t sell yourself short! You have EVERYTHING to live for! You don’t have to feel like nobody cares because people do. Sometimes the devil has your mind in such a tangle that you forget about the people who really love you and care. If you don’t have a family who loves you, you still have Jesus Christ, your personal Lord and Savior. Your Father. Your eternal Father who will love you for who you are and always be there when you need him. ALWAYS.
If you are thinking, “I need someone to talk to about my problems,” don’t worry. The Prayer Closet is right here to listen. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to send us an email when you are ready. email@example.com we will not share your information with anyone at all. In fact, you don’t have to worry, because if you want to remain completely anonymous, you can.
