Below is an excerpt from my journal on projecting rejection onto others.


July 10, 2020

Many times, I get this strong feeling that someone doesn’t like me. I pick apart everything they do or say to me. Convinced they hate me. Turns out, it’s probably that I don’t like them and that thought makes me uncomfortable, so I project it on to them. I know what rejection feels like, what being excluded feels like. So I don’t want to admit to myself that I just don’t like that person.

It’s okay though. I’m an adult. I (and everyone else hopefully) has the freedom to find their tribe, find the people they fit with. It’s okay if I don’t like some people. Nothing bad will come of that as long as I respect them. Not liking someone doesn’t make me the bully.
