Why Rejection is Cool | Change your thoughts

September 14, 2010

I believe part of that is because we are so conditioned to seek acceptance from society. I mean, come on, nobody wants to be a total freak.

Okay, maybe some sociopaths.

But in all seriousness, people tend to see non-acceptance as a sign of non-worthiness. When some people get rejected, they take a huge blow to their self-worth, and the result is a mangled pile of rusted self confidence.

On the other hand, when a person responds positively to rejection, the hammer of worthlessness doesn’t have the opportunity to smite them.

In fact, when rejection is properly channeled, the person can learn and grow from the experience, and come out of the situation much better than if they had just been accepted.
