Yellow jackets freak me out
Rejection always stings
I was brought up
Just to fall
When will this ever end?

What am I?

Hint 1:

People are usually busy
With some distraction

Hint 2:

When I come around
They tell me to go away
But if I stay away too long
They start to pray for me

You are

rain

Yellow jackets freak me out
Rejection always stings

Raincoats keep away the rain, and can be yellow

I was brought up
Just to fall
When will this ever end?

The water evaporates from the ground, forms clouds, yet inevitably falls back down again.
It will end when the expanding Sun swallows us all (so don't worry).

Old Answer:

reason:

as they get attracted by yellow color and sting as well
