No one would ever say that throughout their lives, there wasn't any point of time when they feel like out of place like their presence wasn't needed or worst; they are outcasted and rejected.
Whether we are at our workplace or with friends or family, feeling like a "Lamppost" or a defective product may happen. It doesn't only occur to single parents, the elderly, or someone who is purely an introvert.

Communication between people is the most essential skill, yet many of us seemed to be not good at it.
I remembered an incident between me and my previous business partner that made me felt frustrated way beyond my "I can still smile"- threshold after he proved how useless he was.
Why did I got frustrated, you may ask? Well..
For more than 5 months of preparations and meetings, he had not even started on the things he promised to do, and yet he kept giving me advice on how to do my part!
I was mustering all the strength I could to not slap him in the face, really. Instead, I pointed out all of his mistakes and unacceptable behaviors in a very sarcastic tone enough to make him feel attacked and annoyed.
What happened next was hard to swallow.....
