Rejection is such a powerful feeling!! Often shame, sadness, or grief people feel when they are not accepted by others. ... Because most humans desire social contact, and many people crave acceptance from society, being rejected can incite negative feelings and emotions.
When the rejection happens, no matter in what context, pause. Breathe. Pray, if that’s your thing. Acknowledge your strengths. Try to look at the situation as objectively as you can. Acknowledge the feelings of ego deflation and sadness. Feel the pain. Lean into the pain! Hell, write about the pain. And pull on your strengths.
