Human beings vary in their sense of approval. This is why someone’s validation may be another’s disapproval. It is not possible to please everyone.
This accounts for the beauty of the human race.
Everyone longs for acceptance (everybody wants to be important), people get their feeling of importance through various means but the one way which most people sort to get their feeling of importance is when others make them important. Right?
For teenagers and young adults, the longing to belong and do what everyone else is doing is of high intensity.
Personally, in my early teen years, I wanted to go into a relationship because my mates were taking that path.
So, I wanted to feel that I belonged to the same world as that they belonged to.
I started crushing on girls sporadically and asking them out at the same velocity – remember I wanted to get that feeling of being important too.
Guess what I received in return?
Did I really get that feeling?
Your guess is as good as mine, what I got in return was REJECTION.
Yes, what i got in return was rejection by all those I loved. Sincerely it hurts to be rejected and the feeling that accompanies it is what you can term DEMEANING and SELF-DESTRUCTING.
So many persons are on this path of self-rejuvenation, recovering from the pains of being rejected.
It is worthy to note that, dealing with rejection can be daunting and it comes with lots of self-devaluation.
Rejection makes you doubt and disbelief in your capabilities, and it also makes you feel that you are not good enough and hence inferiority complex may set in.
Although these things are obtainable, we all need to brace up and see the beautiful side of rejection.
if I wasn’t rejected at the first place, I may not be writing this stuff today.
There is really great inspiration in rejection.
The beauty of rejection lies in that;
It allows one to know that you cannot survive without yourself.
When I was in the experience of pain of been rejected, it cost me so much to know this truth about rejection. I got to understand that my happiness only came from the validations of people just like many people are at the moment. You feel so sad if you are not getting approval from anyone. But once you are rejected, you will see that you are the only option of being happy for yourself.
it sometimes has a way of letting you know that you are alone in your journey to success or failure. Most times, you discover that once you get rejected you feel all left alone. And it gives you a sense of responsibility and not attributing your failures and successes to anybody apart from yourself.
