Rejection. GASP. Yes, I have said it. Rejection. It seems like such a harsh word, right? We have all experienced this from one time to another and maybe we see this as a negative. I dare to challenge you to look at it in a positive light.
When we are rejected in a business proposition, a relationship, a meeting or a date, we might have feelings of insecurity. We might feel offended, vulnerable…or otherwise hurt. We shouldn’t be feeling any of the above really! We should seek peace and solace that there is a GREATER reason that door has shut. I struggled with this concept for a very long time. I still struggle with it too. It’s a human thing.
I think if you realized how many times in a day one could be rejected and how that rejection shapes the post actions of yourself you might just find that things are not as bad as they seem. Rejection is apart of life after all.
In my experience, when I find a “love interest” that I am into, but their vibes scream otherwise it is hard to accept. Why don’t they like me? Why do I ALWAYS do this? It must be me….why do I am I always doing this? Well did you ever stop and think–It’s not you, it’s them…I have found this is usually the case. They are the ones that are going through whatever it is they are and that is OK! It is OK that they aren’t into you. Would you really want someone who wasn’t 100% all about you anyways? My answer is no.
It is our journey. It is our path as much as it is theirs. The person doing the rejecting may just not be there yet in his/her journey and it is better to learn to accept and love them regardless. You don’t just stop being you because you have been rejected–you embrace yourself even more so. Be you ever more! Show others that rejection doesn’t own you! Rejection sometimes provides the motivation to get from where you are to where you want to be! Allow it to work positively and always keep looking up. God will always provide something bigger and better if you allow it to happen.
