Quote of the Day

The people we are not meant to be with will always reject us and turn us down.  We can never be good enough for them, if we were not good enough in the beginning.  We need to realize this and when we get a sign, a gut feeling, a nudge that this person is not for us we must look for the exit sign right there and then.  No waiting.  No doubting.  No wondering how we can make ourselves better so they see us.  You see, there are so many people who actually would want to be with us.  It is possible that because we have been so obsessed with these other folks we have completely missed the ones who loved us to begin with.  Next time you get a gut feeling that someone is ignoring you or that you are not connecting with them somehow, don't keep trying.  They could be your colleagues, your peers, your family or someone you are really attracted to.  Know that it is for the best if you don't pursue or turn your world upside down just to get their approval.  You could be the queen or the king and still be ignored and not loved ... Now go and be with the people who want to be with you.  Anybody else...well you know what to do.  Don't be with them.

-- Christina Rasmussen, "Be with the People Who Want to Be with You"
