If your like me, then you’ve been a victim of a couple of rejections, or at least one…I mean c’mon, at least one. Not one of the best feelings to experience, I mean no one wants to feel rejected but it’s just a part of life, sometimes it’s going to happen. There’s a few ways to get rejected, for example applying for a job that you really want and they turn you down, or your movie script being tossed in the trash or being rejected by the popular crew in grade school and last but certainly not least getting rejected by someone you like, that one stings the most honestly. But the point is everyone at some point of their lives have been rejected, and with it comes a lot of negative feelings, such as low self esteem, doubt, lack of confidence, and many more and it can be difficult navigating through life with these bad emotions because you can’t just magically make them disappear.
We should get over the feeling of rejection because eventually we’re going to have trust again. Believe or not, there are some people out there who would agree that, the best thing to do when someone rejects you is to close yourself off to everyone, and never trust again. But would you truly be happy? Trust is important, it allows us to be open to others especially in relationships. One of the greatest feelings to experience is a connection with someone, it’s as though this individual understands you or get’s you, as some would say. But we can’t just go out there and give our hearts to just anyone, we have to be careful, yes trust is important but so is choosing who to give it to, some people will only get close to us just to betray and hurt us, but there are some with good intentions. Before we can fully trust someone let’s play it safe first and not be in a hurry and give the best and most vulnerable parts of us to just anyone.
Another reason why we should get over rejections it’s because everyone deserves a chance to be happy again. If we keep holding on to the past and grieving over what happened we can miss out on a lot of good opportunities. Now, don’t get me wrong, it sucks to get rejected, and everyone needs to grieve it but, how long should you grieve? I literally know someone that has been grieving over a break up for 5 years now, and if your wondering? no it’s not me but to still be upset over a break up that happened 5 years ago is more than excessive, and this individual haven’t pursued any other relationships he has been stuck where he is at, it’s as if he doesn’t want to be happy again.
But that doesn’t really solve anything does it. We need to move forward, we need to leave the past where it belongs and pursue the here and now, now again it’s completely ok to be sad and grieve over these things but, if we stay in that mindset it’ll take a toll on our mental health.
