Rejection hurts. But the real rejection is self-rejection. If you don’t reject yourself, no one can reject you. Rejection happens within you.

You don’t fear rejection. You fear the problems after rejection. If you want to deal with that, you must first accept yourself. Without self- acceptance, you cannot fight or cope with the issues that come with rejection. According to Bo Bennett, “It is not rejection itself that people fear; it is the possible consequences of rejection.” If you want to build a great life, you must conquer the fear of rejection. You must be in love with yourself. Love conquers everything. If you feel rejected, love yourself even more. With love, rejection is meaningless. With love, your world is bigger than rejection.
