We've all experienced rejection, some more than others. Well I bet we all think about the same shit when we do. If I forget any, feel free to add.
1. Am I not good enough?
We always feel as if we weren't good enough. Is it because we don't look like someone else? Are we too loud or too shy?
2. Was there someone else?
Of course if they don't choose us, there must be someone else. Is it a romantic interest? Is it a friend that's keeping them from dating?
3. Why not me?
We all think this. What's wrong with us? Are we not good enough for that person?
4. Who do they think they are?
We all go through this little stage after being rejected. Who do they think they are to reject us? We will think along the lines of "I am who I am, I guess they can't handle me."
5. I want to curl up in a ball for a while.
We all get a little depressed after being rejected. Some cry, others just sit in silence.
6. I don't want to talk.
Some of us just want to sit down and not talk to anyone. Maybe headphones in volume up or we want to curl up with a good book.
7. Fuck them, they don't know what they're missing on!
We all get to this stage too, some earlier than others. They don't know what fun, amazing people they're missing out on by rejecting us!
8. I understand I guess.
Finally, the stage of acceptance. We understand they might have said no for a valid reason (sometimes people can just be too shallow). Acceptance is imporant and if we accept that they rejected us then we're one step closer to loving ourselves.
Rejection is a natural part of being human. Everyone is going to get rejected. If it's for a relationship or a college, it'll happen. It's inevetible. So accept who you are and love yourself. You'll find what/who you need to accept you.
