I ran across a book titled The Rejection Junkies Book in my travels. I read a little bit about it, and I guess I have to admit I qualify. The author's blog asks the provocative question: "Are you tired of being rejected by the world?" Um, yes. I am. But I'm used to it. Did you know that by 8 years old, 80% of our emotional patterns are formed? Was I therefore raised to be a writer? My family would be surprised to learn it, I think. They wish I'd stop writing; it makes them uncomfortable. Hmm...I'm going to go lie down on the couch and think about that for awhile.
