I have been rejected a lot of times. And for me there's nothing to be afraid of. I mean, they are part of our life. As we grow, we really experience rejections from people but after, they give us wonderful lessons to learn. Learnings are the best.

rejection is part of life. everybody does experience it. the only thing that matter is how we will respond to it. it is better to know/accept ourselves first so that we won't be hurt whatever negative things we heard from others. actually it is also hard to receive rejection especially when you know you did your best and it didn't passed their standards. one thing i also think is that, it is hard to please all men.

you are right che..you can never please anybody..but i guess, trying and failing would make us a better person rather tha wondering forever what could have been if we tried...

We all go through our phases and times of rejection. It's only with the experience that we truly learn. The determination and the constant attitude of knowing that this is only a temporary phenomnen has made me handle it better. No point in dwelling in the fear of rejection, it makes it worse. Give it your honest and best approach and remain optimistic as you say. That is i feel is the best way to handle it. I've learnt it the hard way.

i agree with you..most of us learn our lessons in life the hard way..im just glad i went thru my troubles without breaking down..and i know, we can get thru everything that are meant to come because we were honed by hard times and experience....

Hi friend,In everyones life we have to face rejections sometime or other.Thats life.We wont get positive results always.I have faced this many times in my life.Each and every time I feel very much dejected,but somehow we have to face and overcome such situations.What I think is God will certainly give positive results only when we should have that in our lives.so it goes on andon and on.Thanks for sharing.Happy mylotting.
