Every one of us experiences rejection at point time in our lives, be it from work, school, relationship or another person. When you are afraid that you might be rejected, you go on pleasing others so that no one should develop a negative opinion about you. You are extremely dishonest with yourself and you tend to become habitual liar.
If you believe that you can take care of your own needs well and be happy even if you are alone, then being alone is nothing to fear. If you believe that you need others to take care of you and "make" you happy, then you are too dependent on others and their absence is something to "panic" about.
Realize that only losers avoid rejection.
Stop worrying about what others think of you.
Do not be a "people pleaser".
There is an end to the pain.
Don't take it personally.
Learn and move on.
Turn rejection into acceptance.
Remember…If we continually hold back from interacting with people because of our fear of rejection, we simultaneously miss out on the potential happiness, warmth, fun and excitement that other people can bring to us.
Do not ever be afraid of rejection in life. If someone rejects you, take that as a challenge to prove yourself. Don't let other people dictate your identity.
