I know we have encountered lots of rejections. Like, if we are looking for a job and we didn't qualify for it. So, I would like to ask, how do you accept rejections in your life?

As aa matter of fact, it's hard to accept rejections in life especially when a girl reject your love. In my experience being rejected in a job is just fine, you can apply to other companies where you're skills fit. Furthermore, if in a competition you were rejected you can try again until you succeed. However, being rejected with you're honest feelings to someone is quite hard to accept. It took me years to move on and accept the fact that she can't be mine. I recently know she's with someone else already. I was in a point in my life that I decided to kill myself...I took a poison yet God's will I still survive. But the good thing about my experience I became mature in terms of relationship and other things...a responsible individual. If you want to be strong in life, first ask the God's guidance to survive on life's challenge. Second, you have to decide to move on and expect a lot of rejections along the way. Third, never give up to fight until you reach your goal...some say courage and determination will be your shining armor in life. Fourth, ask suppport in your family or friend especially at this point in your life. Lastly, watch the Secret...its an inspiring movie and read Napoleon Hill book "Think and Grow Rich" and read inspiring stories. Good luck in your life.

At first of course I would feel devastated but then it came to the point that I am already immune of rejection as I understand of what are the things that I should add for the better improvement.

first of all we need to accept the fact that we cannot please everybody. In job application for instance, people have qualifications that you may or may not meet. just like you, you just don't notice but there are also people or circumstances that you reject. It is a matter of acceptance. Just look at the brighter side, there are still people who likes you and who wants your company so just stick with them and learn to appreciate more what you have.

I've encountered numerous rejections in the past and to be honest I wasn't able to handle them quite well. But over the years, experience would teach me valuable lessons and it solidified my feelings. I'm proud to say that I handle rejections quite well nowadays.

Being rejected is very painful.., It makes feel really low and our self-esteem will drop at zero level.., It is disappointing especially if we expected the other way around.., yet life must move on.., WE can take it as a challenge and do better the next time//=)

If i was rejected,i would think that there must be some critical defects that i have to correct compared to the others.Maybe i did not well enough.I will make it a target that i will try my best to gain.But what maters is that you shouldn't lose your confidence because of it.What's more,we should find our weakness and make ourselves excellent enough for it. Happy mylotting!

I just take them in strides and tell myself to do better next time. There's really no point for me to dwell in them because doing so will never turn back the hands of time.

Acceptance and rejection,success and failure like all other opposites are the realities of life. There are a host of factors that independently or jointly influence the final outcome of one's action. I fully accept the responsibility of all types of circumstances that I face at every moment of my life. I feel very little concerned about the outcome of my effort and continue my journey of life with positive attitude and trust on God.

First, I ask myself why I was rejected. Then, I try to see if I could get another chance. Then, I try again, this time correcting my faults and taking a different approach. If I can't get another chance, then I would simply shrug my shoulders, move on and look for things that are better than what I was pursuing. I don't take rejections personally.
