“Don’t waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good.“- Ralph Waldo Emerson

To stop wasting yourself in rejection, you must accept rejection with passion, love, and happiness. When it comes to growth, rejection is normal. Just accept it with your whole heart. Remember that rejection is not about you. Rejection is about your action, not you. So don’t make it about you.

When you accept rejection with love, you will begin to see the beauty around you. There are lots of beauty around you. You cannot see them because you are still wasting your life in rejection. Stop! Just stop doing that to yourself.

Rejection is not about you.”

Accepting rejection starts with you. As you already know, you are your own boss. So lead yourself to your destination. You can’t move forward in your life if you are not ready to let go of rejection. Let it go. It does not belong to you. When you let go of rejection, then you attract great things into your life. When you let go of rejection, opportunities will come to you. Take rejection as a blessing, not a curse. Take rejection as a way forward, not a way backward. When you waste your time in rejection, you are not moving forward in your life, but backward.

If you want to go forward in your life, accept rejection as a friend, not an enemy.
