  • Winston Churchill said, "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." I believe that failure is a vital learning tool in our lives and as Churchill said what matters more than the failure is getting up and continuing on.

    Rejection can be seen as a form of failure in that you were unsuccessful in getting what you wanted at that time. This can be admittance to university or getting a date with someone or your partner rejecting you and moving on. I view rejection as a way to determine your course of action. In my view rejection is not a failure as much as it is a way to narrow down options.

    I believe truly successful people are the ones who despite rejection or failure, keep moving on. The Carthaginian general Hannibal said, "I will find a way or I will make a way," and this pretty much sums up the unbridled optimism and mental discipline required to see many outcomes and be undeterred as those options reduce and your selections are not met with immediate success because success is rarely if ever immediate.

  • Learn outcome independence. You're good with however things turn out.
    This frees you to act and do as you choose, not worrying about how things will turn out.

    Remember that if a woman rejects you, it's not YOU, it's HER perception of you. She doesn't even know you.

    Now, if you've dated her and banged her and she rejects you, then that's on you. ;)

    • Not to be rude but I think this creeped me out because you are 61 and you stated “Now, if you dated her and banged her and she rejects you, then that’s on you. 😉” Especially the winky face.

    • @GraceKarler that’s because he’s seen me on here. Get outta here with your drama.

    • @GraceKarler - Yes, I understand the truth can be hard for your little highness. Whateve's toots. Buck it up or GTFO.

  • Well, just recently I’ve sorta been rejected. I’m saying sorta because he knows I like him he just won’t tell me how he feels. Anyway, I just usually rethink my life choices over binge watching family guy while eating a food I enjoy. Or, hang out with friends. I find that talking about my situation with friends helps a little but it can also make you think about it more.

  • I don't deal with it... Cuz it is a case that is closed, her loss not mine at the end of the day.
    Rejected, or accepted doesn't matter, what really matters is to accept your self, that's the key for life.
    I see a girl I like I go and talk to her, I don't care what goes, at the end of the day when I sleep I won't think about it.

  • It's all up to your mindset. Rejections and failures are a part of life but are you willing to accept and evaluate where things went wrong? Or you choose to be emotional about it?

    Remember emotions will cloud your thinking leading to rash decision which only further escalates your problem.

  • By flipping my psychopathy switch and not caring.

    For people who can't do that, I recomment getting up early in the morning, going for a jog and then cleaning your house. Hang with friends, and don't brood. Thinking about it is fine, but don't cross that brooding line.

  • I just try to figure out what I did wrong. Then I take a look at what I did figure out if I can improve on what I did or change an approach or learn a skill to better it. Then I move on.

  • You take it. Use the feelings of shame, anger, regret and twist it. Use it for something productive. In the gym, use it for that extra rep, at work use it for that extra file.. etc etc
