Cheat Sheet on Overcoming Rejection

Love is a bundle of strong unfamiliar emotions that catch you in its strongest wave. If found, you’ll see how it inspires changes from within you. But it’s not all sunshine and flowers when it comes to love. It is like a diamond that shines even in the dark, forged by all the pain and rejection you will go through in your life.

Dating is not as simple as meeting someone and trying to build a relationship with them. If you’re not ready, it might just as well be as destructive as a time bomb, just waiting to go off. And not every relationship survives. Rejection’s always been a part of relationships. It happens even with family, friends, and sometimes, even with one’s self. But what should you do when this happens to you?

Knowing Your Worth

Some people seek acceptance from others. This is how they fall so hard and feel so desolate when rejected. Thing is, you don’t need approval from anyone else but yourself. Your confidence, your identity, your ego, your soul, your very being – it is all yours and no one can take them away from you.

 

Taking One Step At A Time

Don’t rush the process of moving on. Grieve and accept the rejection. Let yourself feel the anger and the pain but don’t dwell too much. Be sad, feel lonely, look at the world with different eyes – then go to a spa. Treat yourself to a pampering session. It always works in making one feel good. Go for therapies that offer the best Dead Sea mud mask or embark on a shopping spree.

Indulge in what makes your soul sing – whether it’s food, materials, music, books, clothes, do it. Take care of yourself first and know that if there’s anyone who has your back, it is you.
