When One Door Closes Another One Opens
Welcome Back Lovelies
For this week's blog post, I decided to touch on a subject that is very relatable to my audience. We all deal with rejection in some shape or form whether that's in our relationships or our careers. Knowing this, we must learn how to accept and grow with rejection because it is inevitable. We will run into rejection in all aspects of our lives but it doesn't have to control us.
Rejection shouldn't define you instead it should inspire you. I believe that rejection and growth go hand and hand. The bright side of rejection is that it gives you the opportunity to grow. You can now explore new alternative ways to reach your goals. The power that rejection has is only as powerful if you choose to give in to that power. As we go through life, rejection is bound to appear within our lives. How we choose to react to rejection is entirely up to us though. The way that I approach rejection is by embracing it. I allow myself to feel all of my emotions, whether it's for a day or a week. I truly just let myself feel everything without forcing myself to feel better.
After this, I pick myself up look at my situation from multiple perspectives, and assess how I can move forward. Once my emotions are settled I am able to make a game plan and move forward. I know this is easier said than done but I promise that things will seem better once your initial feelings settle.
What's meant for you will always find you.
I believe this wholeheartedly because it is so true. Everything happens for a reason regardless if it's positive or negative. You have to do what works best for you and this looks different for everyone. In my personal experience, l have found leaning on my faith when rejection occurs in my life is very helpful. God is the only one that has the all answers. God has a plan for me that I cannot see, so why wouldn't I trust him to lead me during my time of rejection?
As previously stated, you have to do what works best for you but I hope my advice helps you with your relationship with rejection.
