I grew up being the least popular kid in school. Oh ok, maybe the second least popular kid in school. I remembered there was this girl who suffered worse than me. We were almost ‘invisible’. Nobody would even notice if we were present or absent in class :(
Like any other girls, we had our very own crushes too. Needless to say, they all went unnoticed. Even if our crushes survived the daylight and managed to surface it will always bounce back to us dejected. So I know how it feels to be rejected, to feel unwanted.
Being rejected is one the worst feeling in the whole wide world. Like a bolt of lightning, it zaps and kills your self-esteem, your self-worthiness. I’m so used to getting doors slammed at my face, I vow never to cause another human being to feel rejection again, not from ME at least. That is why I always think twice before turning anyone or anything down…
I was in my second home today when I was approached by some credit card recruiter pestering me to sign-up for a card. I used to decline them politely but it doesn’t seem to be working anymore. These days, try telling them you are not interested and they’ll demand for an explanation. Tell them you already have such card, they’ll request you to show it to them just to prove your point! What is worse, when you are so fed up and ready to leave, they’ll start tugging at your arms refraining you from leaving!
What do you do when a particular someone just refused to take NO as an answer? No matter what your reason, it’ll just fall into deaf ears! Unfortunately, in moments like that when the gentle approach doesn’t work, I will have to resort to a harsher method. By harsh I mean just walk away and pretend that they are ‘invisible’. I know it’s bad as I was once THE invisible one and they are only humans trying to earn a living just like the rest of us, but sometimes, enough is enough and they’ve got to learn that when a girl says NO, she actually means it!
