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.
We love because love is life. Love is God. You can’t live a happy life if you are not in love. But you can’t love another person if you are not REALLY in love with yourself.
You might ask, “How can I be in love with myself?” It is possible.
When you are in love with yourself, you don’t see anything wrong with yourself. Everything about you is fine. You see yourself the way you really are. You don’t compare yourself to others. You live your own life. You do your own thing in your own way. You appreciate life. You love and appreciate the people around you. You don’t carry grudges around. You forgive people who hurts you. You are the master of your life. You enjoy life. That is love in action!
