Being in your feelings is a sure way of experiencing the discomfort associated with rejection. From silent treatment to upfront disrespect, we all have had our share of being dismissed by someone, some job, some family member, some potential mate, or someone we thought was a friend.

Building Inner - Confidence
Experiencing a period of rejection can be a teaching moment if you welcome the lesson. Often times, we look for cosigns from those around us to have a sense of value. When building a business, pursuing a dream, or simply starting something new, many tend to rely on others for gauging whether or not an idea or decision is a valid. There will be times when you have to believe on your own. When no one else believes with you it is a true test of your faith. Your strength is often times found in solitude. Stay in the classroom and keep believing.
The best approach to moving on from rejection is forgiveness. At times people really do not know what they do. There may be a season in life where everyone closest to you separates from you; and you may not even understand the reason. Forgiveness is a spiritual act of not holding an offense against another. It is not deeming the offense as right neither does it obligate you to maintain the same type of relationship or level of intimacy. You can continue to love from a distance.
Don’t Take It Personal
Another person’s rejection in not always a reflection of who you are. Most often, others treat you how they treat themselves. So, if you truly weren’t the root cause, do your best not to take things personally. And if you were, stop playing yourself and get it together. Being rejected can also be a sign of the need to grow.
