People never take rejection well especially when they want something they can't have. Sometimes their anger builds up and they do not know what to do with it or how to release it.

This happens in abusive relationships a lot where a person may feel rejected or turned down so they react by hurting the other person in the relationship.

This is exactly what happened with a man in Smyrna, Georgia. In an article from Fox 2 News called "Man faces prison for burning home, car of woman who rejected him" by Fox 5 Atlanta Digital Team stated

"A Union City man faces 20 years in prison and 10 years probation after he was found guilty of setting fire to a woman's bedroom and car in a jealous rage.

A spokesperson for the Cobb District Attorney's Office said 29-year-old Jerel Jay Wilson committed arson in 2018 incidents separated by a few weeks.

Prosecutors said Wilson first broke into a woman's home after he'd been texting her about her new boyfriend and set fire to her bedroom. Several weeks later, prosecutors said Wilson attacked the woman in a hotel parking lot and set her car on fire when he found out she was driving a man to a Smyrna hotel."

There has been a permanent protection order against the man that caused all of this destruction and he is to serve twenty years in prison for setting the woman's car and house on fire.

Hopefully, the woman that was in this situation finds peace and safety without being worried that someone is going to come after her.
