Rejection is always difficult in the moment, but it makes for a great story after a little time has passed.

Twitter user Eden Dranger (@Eden_Eats) knows this better than most and took to Twitter to find people’s harshest rejection stories.

She began with her own!

Twitter users immediately pitched in with stories of their own.

Each story contained more awkwardness than the last.

Though these memories have become a little less painful, they’re the kind of incidents that are never truly forgotten.

Every good love story begins with complete and utter rejection, right?

You’re not speed dating right if it’s a pleasant experience.

People are just plain rude sometimes.

The success of Dranger’s thread was evident by how uncomfortable everyone felt.

Sorry, everyone.

Hopefully, these were all the worst rejections you’ll ever face!

Learning to deal with being rejected or excluded is hard. The book I Wasn´t Invited to the Birthday, available here, can help children learn how to cope with rejection.
