Do you get dejected when you face rejection? What if it isn’t what you think it is? Read on…

When people are rejecting you, they are giving you an insight into themselves – to understand what they like and don’t like. So, it isn’t about you. Even if it was God in place of you and did what you did, or wore what you wore, or said what you said, they would’ve rejected because in their map, that isn’t approved. So, don’t try too much to seek their approval again in the same way. Find out what’s the difference that’ll make the difference for them. For that, you don’t have to change your values and personality. You just have to tweak your approach.

Rejection doesn’t mean you aren’t good enough. It means, you aren’t good enough for them yet. But someone, somewhere, out there in the world, might still find you good. There’s no denying that. And if no one found it good, no worries. May be they aren’t ready for it. Or, perhaps it is a constructive insight for you as to what the world is looking for is different from ‘what’ or ‘how’ you are offering it to them. 

So, just tweak or transform, don’t abandon yourself!

    Surely rejection comes to us and this feeling is accompanied with pain and anger. Much needed blog. Thanks a lot.

    So true, Ma’am. Every human being is given talent in some areas. If you’re rejected, actually, you aren’t rejected. You’re given feedback to improve and know what they want. If you’ve fixed that and they don’t approve, don’t worry. Try a different approach. This a much-needed blog in my life. It feels like an instruction manual tailored to your needs! Every human being has a purpose. Stay on the path of purity to find out that purpose. Stay Safe, Stay Productive.

    Until we meet again …

    1. Thank you so much Jaivardhan. So beautifully you express yourself. Lovely to hear from you!
