how to overcome rejectionRejecting a person may be a tough thing but dealing with a rejection is even tougher. It can even lead to depression. It creates a deep wound and leaves a big scar. How does rejection wound us? It actually destroys our self-esteem that’s why it hurts. It leads you to a feeling that you are unwanted and that there’s something wrong with you. At one point in our life, we all experience rejection. It actually has many faces. However, rejection in love and dating is sort of different. The thing is there’s nothing that we can do but to accept it and try to handle it in a positive way. Have a look at the following ways on how to overcome rejection.

  • Think of your good qualities. You need to realize your worth as a person. If you have been rejected by someone after you have expressed your interest and sincerity, you should just keep in mind that maybe that person doesn’t see what is good in you.
  • Realize that people have different preferences. This is related to the old saying that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You were rejected because of the person’s opinion and preference.
  • Trust yourself. Your experience of rejection should not destroy your dreams and future plans. Believe that you can do something larger and that someone better is just waiting for you. Give importance to yourself.
  • Focus on your strengths. Instead of feeling sorry for the things that you don’t have, you need to realize what makes you special among other people.

Be positive that it shall pass and someday you will just look back to it and smile. Divert your attention to productive things.
