How to Deal With Rejection

Nobody likes the idea of being rejected but just as the sun rises, it happens.Rejection, no matter if it’s in love, your career, friends, a book proposal or anything else is not something that should affect how happy you are.

Rejection doesn’t feel great and sometimes it feels unfathomable but it shouldn’t be something you permit to take away happiness from your life. The reality of life is that rejection will form a part of it.You’re not always going to get that job but having a positive look on things changes how you handle it.



First off I want to say that its totally ok to express your grief.  To say that it isn’t won’t make me an open-minded person.

These things are as natural as the smile on our faces equally to the sadness we sometimes encounter.As with most things rejection brings emotional responses from within us so learning how to cope with it is crutial.

Let it all out – If you’re crying that means you took it really bad.Get it out your system but don’t dwell on it forever.As soon as you realise that being rejected will only make you stronger,that sad feeling will be very laughable in the future.

Keep trying – Anything that’s worth it is worth trying.If there was a girl that I really like and she says no,chances are she’s just testing me.I personally believe that if its worth it,go hard for it and never give up.

It’s NOT personal – I repeat, it is not personal so don’t take it that way.People normally think or look at themselves as the centre of everything.That isn’t true.It all goes back to perspective, if you react emotionally to being rejected chances are you will go on a downward spiral. Its important to look at such a thing from a logical point of view because its really not about you.Sometimes people are just not interested,and that’s fine.
