How to Deal with Rejection

Why is Rejection Painful?

There are a few different theories as to why rejection is painful. One theory is that we are hardwired to feel pain at the prospect of being rejected by others. In our evolutionary history, being ostracized from a group could have meant death. Another theory suggests that the pain of rejection is similar to physical pain, it is our brain's way of telling us something is wrong. Whatever the reason, rejection hurts—you know just how painful it can be if you have ever been rejected.

What Are the Forms of Rejection?

We can experience rejection in many ways, and it can be experienced at varying degrees. There are many ways that people can be rejected, some of the more common forms of rejection include:

  • Being ignored or avoided
  • Being told outright that you are not wanted or desired
  • Being made to feel like you are not good enough
  • Being treated differently than others who are accepted
  • Being left out or excluded from activities or events
  • Not being chosen for a certain opportunity or position
  • Being passed over for a promotion or raise
  • Being fired from a job
  • Having your ideas or suggestions rejected
  • Being rejected by your family or friends
  • Being rejected romantically

Rejection can be a painful experience, especially if it is someone you care about who is rejecting you. Unfortunately, rejection is a part of life that everyone has to deal with. The important thing is not to let rejection define you or stop you from pursuing your goals.

People who can deal with rejection tend to be more confident—they are sure of themselves and do not let the outside world alter how they feel. People who do not cope well with rejection are the opposite, they have a lack of self-confidence and often possess a negative outlook on life.

3 Ways to Master Rejection

The best way to deal with rejection is to face it head-on. Try not to take things personally and know that you are still a person of great value. The form of rejection that people fear most involves love—whether it is making the first move, proposing, or expressing your interest in someone. Those who are rejected after making their feelings known will immediately assume that there is something wrong with them, the truth is, you are just not for everybody.

How do you deal with rejection? Well, first of all, you have to accept that it is a part of life and that there is nothing you can do to avoid it. What you can do is learn how to deal with rejection healthily.

1. Do Not Take It Personally

The first and most important thing to remember is that rejection is not personal. Just because someone does not want to be with you or work with you, does not mean something is wrong with you. Whatever the reason for you being rejected, do not take it to heart, it is not about you.

2. Do Not Dwell On It

Once you have been rejected, it is important to move on as quickly as possible. Ruminating on what could have been or what you did wrong will only make you feel worse and hinder your ability to move forward. Instead of dwelling on the rejection, focus on the future and what you can do to achieve your goals.

3. Talk With Someone

If you find it hard to deal with the rejection, talk to someone about it. Talking openly and honestly about how you feel can be cathartic and help you gain some much-needed perspective.
