Accept Rejection

We hate rejection because it hurts.

When we are rejected we feel as though everything we have worked for or accomplished is for nothing. We cower in our shells and guard our hearts. In these moments , we forget that time is required to heal all wounds. If you have been rejected, are feeling rejected or can see a rejection coming in the near future — embrace it — learn from it and allow the pain to push you into positive action.

Let’s get over it together.

1. Recognize the rejection.

2. Process the hurt.

3. Record the lesson.

4. Remind yourself that you were DELAYED, but NOT denied.

5. Refocus the energy to work in your favor.

  1. I once thought life was difficult. I once SAW life as difficult. Yet around me were people who always expressed so much joy and fun in life that simply left me startling. Then I realized the notion that life is difficult was passed onto me unconsciously by my parents who though meant well, left that impression in me that life is indeed difficult through their tough struggle to make ends meet.

    So I re-defined my meaning of life, and I have always FOUND a reason to smile ever since.

    You see, life happens. This happening is in itself neutral. Good, Bad, Wonderful, lol, Awesome, Awful, Disastrous, WOW, OMG, wtf, Sad, Angry, Cheerful, Kind etc are all interpretations that people make of it. So at the end of the day, it’s a matter of what perspective one chooses to settle with.

    So all experiences in life can be all things, ranging from Awesome to Aweful. Sometimes, we are simply blind enough not to see the better interpretation of the happening, so we settle with the poor one. Wanna know what my days are like?

    Like those of a kindergarden child, Full of energy and joy, even when there is no reason to support the same from the external. So when my best friend asked me how I was doing one morning, I told him, ” Awesome”. Then he asked. “What’s your definition of awesome”.

    I answered, “Feeling good no matter what”.Period.
