To anyone that has ever felt rejected, you understand.
To anyone that was raised in a single/no parent home because of decisions, you understand.
This scene hits home for me because I have felt that rejection, along with many other kids. This scene plays out in homes regardless of race, income and religion. This scene still affects those that lost parents to addictions, divorce, jail, and choice.
Know that you are not alone and there are many of us that understand. We have been there.
What I still don’t understand is why scenes like this break some people and creates chips on others.
I’ve seen many overcome these situations and go on to become Uber successful due to that chip and having something to prove.
On the flip, I’ve seen some people become so broken that they continue the cycle that broke them.
We all feel rejected at some point.
My wish for the world is that people build resilience and grit in their personality so that these major hurdles become but small bumps as they grow into beautiful people that allow others to love them and be part of that circle of trust.
Check out the video that still makes me tear up.
