re: When you feel rejected/are rejected
I used to drink a lot and did a lot of drugs when I was in my 20s. Without that, I would have had no social life at all. I also used to be a bit of a troll in some of the chat rooms, just to get attention. All that destructive behavior comes from not accepting something about yourself. I really hated myself. It's hard for other people to like you when you don't like yourself.
The answer is self-acceptance. As you accept yourself, you'll find that other people accept and like you more, but that's not the goal. The goal is to like yourself. Develop your hobbies and interests and work on living in the present.
