Most of the people might well have experienced dissipation and the pangs of dejection at least at some point of time in their life. To be in the limelight,getting noticed by fellowmen, lots of money to spent, plenty of entertainment to catch on, lots of people around to love and admire.....all these and many more likenesses set in with the passage of age in one's entire life span. But when gets to feel the reverse happenings it is but natural that gloom and despair set in .

In my life, I find that there is a lot more dejection than there is times that you feel like things are really going your way. My life has been very difficult, starting with the fact that my father passed away when I was fourteen years old and that was something that I took really hard. Then, I fell in love for the first time when I was 19 years old and two days before his mother got married, he called me and told me that I wasn't welcome at the wedding because he'd met someone new. At 22 I met the man that is now my husband and things were pretty good for several years and then last year he was diagnosed with cancer, which has honestly been one of the hardest things that I've been through in my life.

Yes, we all have probably experienced pangs of dejection and such in our lives. Gloom and despairs can be a person's daily companions. If we have good and positive reinforcements and people in our corner then we are less apt to have these bad times.

this negative feeling of dejection and being forlorn stems from our desire to be connected with and to belong to others. if we get frustrated and fail to have someone in our life, then there is always another chance lurking. welcome it and give it another run. soon, we will find our own place under the sun where we will be happy, for sure.

I would say that every experience has an opposite. Those very things that nurtured us yesterday, may well cause discomfort today. It seems with some famous people, that they get so hoooked on admiration, that they begin to feel that they never get enough. A friend of mine became a sporting champion, and one evening we were in a nightclub, and he got most upset that nobody thought to tell the M.C that he was in the building and so he didn't get acknolwedged with a round of applause. He was looking at me as he complained towards the end of the evening.. _Derek
