REJECTION: how do you handle it?
March 12, 2008 7:21am CST
No matter how one looks at it... it is always negative. No matter how one sees it... it is always scary. And no matter how one considers it... it is always painful. Nobody is excepted from rejection. No one is invinsible from rejection. And everybody have a fair share of it. The only difference is the way one handles it. I could be a blessing in disguise for some who are strong. A wake up call to others who are in a sleep mode. Or worse... death to those who are weak. For me, it is either a blessing or a wake up call. I am an optimist so I always think... that there will always a reason for everything.

Well, like you Ruthinian, I handle rejection in a positive way. Its either a blessing .... as something is better for me out there or yes a wake up call that maybe im doing not doing it right and i have to do better. Before I deal with rejection negatively as who would like to be rejected? Feeling depressed or sad about being rejected only brings you more negative feeling and may bring you just more sadness and even at times into depression. Thus, now, I take depression positively as I reflect on the incident or situation on why I was rejected. Sometimes, it feels good that the reason you are rejected is because you are better than them! Think positive and your rejection will become acceptance!

Handling rejection effectively can be a useful skill. whether its from a person, turned down for a job, I always try and look for the silver lining. Use it to make something positive.Because you never know what's around the next corner.
