Self-Rejection

Self-Rejection

Although I really hate being single
The fear of rejection controls me
I get lost in the thoughts of what if . . .

What if he doesn’t like me?
What if I am not pretty enough?
What if I am not his type?
What if I am not good enough?

I start feeling like I have to pretend to be what I am not.

Pretending to like his likes.
Pretending I look the way I look right now every day.
Pretending we have chemistry.
Pretending I deserve to be with him.

And so,
I cancel our date
There is no need to pretend.

Self-Rejection, keeps me single again.
