  1. Being hurt, being misunderstood, caring…. rejection from someone you care about feels like a knife in the heart, doesn’t it? That’s how it feels to me.

    It’s taken me a long time to figure out that when someone misunderstands me and rejects me, either by falsely accusing me of something, or refusing to talk to me… the problem is usually inside them, and has nothing, or very little, to do with me. It’s sad and it hurts and it’s maddening. I wish I knew how to keep it from ever happening. Lately I’ve been isolating a lot, that’s how I try to protect myself from hurt. But then I miss out on the good things, so maybe isolating isn’t such a good idea.

  2. I’ve had so many people stop talking to me because of something they perceive I’ve said that I haven’t meant in the way they thought. My feeling at the time has been the same as yours, but afterwards I’ve usually realised we weren’t on the same wavelength so it was probably a lucky escape.

    And no, as you say – you can’t not care.
