Rejection happens everywhere to anyone at any time, as life doesn’t care, as we don’t always get what we want or deserve. The most common rejection being love, money, or finding a suitable occupation. Rejection can occur to anyone when least expecting it. We can’t always get what we’re seeking, this for the privileged or the poor. At some point, we’ll get rejected for something. So it comes down to how we deal with it, and how we recover. Love for instance, is a gesture most want, but won’t try, this because of the fear of rejection. Rejection can occur for our own good as fate interjects. What’s known is it’s unavoidable.
9. Never Take It Personally
Realize that you’re unique but also human. Rejection is a happenstance of life. Most often, the reason why someone rejects you is because of their own situation or reason, and not because of you. It’s usually not personal, so don’t take it personally. It’s not your fault that they rejected you, and although you might not like it, always respect their decision. Reserve the right for they to reject whatever it is you requested. Don’t sulk or judge, but instead place everything in perspective.
8. Talk With Friends
If you just got rejected by someone you liked, then talk about it with your BFF over coffee. What just talking, revealing how you feel with someone you trust, will relieve the pain. If you keep these feelings in a dark miserable place, it will tilt you off balance. You’ll then lose your sense of assessing the situation rationally, and it will become difficult to get it out of your system. When talking to someone, you can then both compare similar rejections.
7. Keep Moving Forward
Never allow one or a few rejections to disturb or dominate your life. So what if your idea got rejected. Next time, work harder and form better ones. Failing at something means you’re doing something, taking action, moving forward. Know that not everything’s in your control, while all you can control are your actions. Time is of essence, so use it to your best advantage. Rejection is inevitable. Regardless of how difficult it may be right now, this too will pass.
