According to Carolyn Joyce, Rejection is an almost unavoidable aspect of being human. We all face rejection in our daily lives, be it relationship, job offers, promotion, or other reasons. We all experience it, and yet, those times when we do are often the times we feel the most alone, outcast, and unwanted.
In fact, so much of the hurt and struggle we endure isn’t even based on the loss itself but on what we tell ourselves about the experience, the cruel ways we put ourselves down or flood ourselves with hopeless thoughts about the future.
When disappointment or rejection knocks you down, get back up and go again. No time for slippery, but keep moving. We give in to rejection and disappointment so easily when our dreams does not come to pass or go the way we planned it to be. We need to understand that just as God supernaturally opens doors, sometimes God supernaturally closes it. And when God closes a door, it’s always because He has something better in store. So just because the end of the road came early in your life or rather you’ve come to a dead end, that’s not the time to give up.
You know what?
Take a different route and keep going.
Often, out of the dreadful rejection comes our greatest direction. So when you come to the end of the road, or something you have been working on didn’t come through, instead of seeing that as the end, regard that as God nudging you into a better direction. It will be annoying and uncomfortable; and we may not like it. But we cannot make the mistake of just sitting back and settling where we are.
NB: If we can embrace this idea that life is flexible and that losses offer us opportunity, we can grow more within ourselves and suffer less when we experience a rejection.
