How to Overcome the Sting of Rejection

Being rejected is an inevitable part of life. When we don’t understand the rejection from the eyes of higher intelligence, it is easy to create a very painful emotional experience along with a lot of unnecessary suffering.

For example, the fear of rejection can hold people back from marketing their business or taking initiative with a love interest. It is important to realize that the fear is based on self-judgment and the projection of insecurities.

If this pattern stays unconscious, it will exacerbate. For some it will turn into lashing out or a deep sense of hatred and loathing towards others. It is a burden that lies heavy on the heart and mind.

I believe whole-heartedly that only the right doors open. If my next lesson or life experience is working somewhere or with someone, I will be there. It will be effortless. Even believing the way I do, I still struggle with the harsh pain of rejection.

I was so excited to find a local healing arts center that had the same mission as myself. I called them and inquired about working with them as a practitioner. The first interview went well and I was then offered a second. A week went by as I enjoyed the possibility that this new opportunity looked likely to happen. When I followed up, they said they had filled the position.

This particular company was opening a new location that was also hiring. So naturally I applied there. I never received a response or call back. I was now officially rejected beyond a shadow of a doubt. Until that point, there was hope that they had still viewed me as a good candidate. Somehow they made the decision that I was not worthy to work with them. I really felt hurt and questioned myself as a person, I questioned my talent, and my purpose. At times I found myself going into some dark places over it.
