Dealing with rejection

Many people feel really bad when they experience rejection in a job, a relationship or anywhere else.

The main reason some people feel bad when someone rejects them is that they don't know how to deal with rejection the right way. Ever wondered why can two different people experience the same rejection yet one of them feels bad about it and the other moves on?

Its because one of them dealt with the rejection properly while the other didn't. In this article i am going to tell you about the right way to deal with rejection so that you don't feel that bad when someone rejects you.

How to deal with rejection in a relationship, a job or in life

This is why rejections hurts:

  • Rejections and Not being sure of yourself: if somebody applied for a job and was rejected then one of the reasons that could be making him feel bad is not being sure whether his skills are good or not. The same thing happens in rejections that happen in relationships, after being rejected in a relationship the person feels bad because of many reasons and usually one of them is having self doubts.
  • Rejection and helplessness: Rejections hurt the most when the person is too helpless to find an alternative. For example if you were rejected after applying for a job because you don't know where else you should apply then one of the best ways to deal with rejection in such a case is to learn how to open new routes and become less helpless
  • Rejections and emotional wounds: If a girl thinks that she is not that attractive then she will always attribute each rejection she gets to her looks. This means that in order to deal with rejections properly you must first learn how to fix your emotional wounds. In the Solid Self confidence program i explained how many people feel bad when being rejected as a result of being reminded of an emotional wound that they didn't take care of
