When Rejection Comes...

God brought me to this information. I feel the need to share this for all those who are hurting in relationships; whether it be family, friends, and/or colleagues. This is some powerful stuff! This could help some of you be free from other people's approval and/or disapproval of you. THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN SOMEONE REJECTS YOU Sometimes the people that we would most expect to love and accept us—those we’re connected to by blood or family line, friends, and colleagues—can be the very people who cause us the most pain and suffering. We see pictures and hear stories on social media and the news of blissfully happy families and friends. We are faced with the realization that it may not be like that for us in our own family and circle of friend's. If you’re relating to any of this, please remember a few things: *Silence, criticism, and rejection is a form of bullying. They want to intimidate you by manipulating your thinking. It is a form of gaining power and control over you. *Your worth does not depend on another person’s ability (or inability) to love you properly. Your worth comes from the fact that you were made by a loving Creator who sees great beauty in you. You are precious simply because you exist…because of who you are, not because of what you do, or don’t do. *You do not have to earn anyone’s love. It can feel that way when you’ve been programmed to think that you have to jump through hoops to win people’s approval and love, but it’s not true. In fact, we could go so far as to say it’s a lie. Don’t waste your time and energy running after anyone. They may come around one day, but don’t sit and wait for it. *Try not to take it personally. That’s easier said than done, but people who reject you are likely broken people who don’t know how to love; because someone in their lives behaved similarly toward them. The good news is: the cycle can end with you. *Even Jesus was rejected by his family, and those around him. They questioned who he was and were offended at his claims and his authority to talk as he did. Some of them believed in him, but some didn’t see who he was at all. They felt threatened by him and even ridiculed him. So, in a way, if you’ve had that happen to you, you’re in good company. *Those who try to manipulate you do not have your best interests in mind. Don’t be fooled. Tune in to your intuition. PEOPLE WHO TRULY CARE ABOUT YOU DO NOT MAKE YOU FEEL UNEASY. Don’t allow yourself to be guilted into doing and saying things you don’t want to do, and say, for fear of meeting with someone’s disapproval. You shouldn’t need to win their approval to begin with. *No one is perfect. In all those photos you see on social media where everyone looks so happy... Keep in mind, that’s just a snapshot. Everyone has their issues whether you hear about them or not. *You’re not alone. Look around and remember that oftentimes those in our lives who do know how to care for us are God with skin on. Underneath all our pain, there is a loving presence in the universe. You may not see it as God; but behind all the darkness, there is a force of love that calls to us and accepts us as we are. That loving presence will sustain us when all other sources of love are unavailable and/or are gone. It is this presence that runs beneath every current of your life and accepts, rather than rejects, you. This is the presence that ever and always will call you “Beloved.”

That's interesting. Thanks for sharing that with us here. I never thought that silence could be bullying, but I think that I agree with you there too. Silence can be a form of bullying sometimes, keeping to ourselves, and not sharing of our speech to others, for fear of them denigrating/criticising what we say. Love is ever silent, but ever noiseful too, as it speaks to you from silence. Silence then can be two types, then, a loving warm type, or a bullying cold type. We need to speak through silence our love, not our fear.
