The power of rejection can stop us dead in our tracks. We’ll avoid conversations, connections, and experiences from fear of rejection.
So we deal with *potential* rejection by stuffing feelings, pleasing people, pulling back from growth, overextending, complaining incessantly, and and and…
…then we SNAP. And move straight into isolation, withdrawal, pushing, quitting, escaping, and EXPLODING.
And once we’re done with that whole cycle, we start it all over again. And again. AND WAY TOO MANY TIMES AFTER THAT.
But is there *really* a way to protect ourselves from rejection? Even when we think we are?
In the end, fear of rejection results in us playing small. And searching for an unsearchable answer. And living a complacent life. It’s moving with no purpose behind the movement. And what is even the point of no purpose in this super short life?
BE BRAVE. Speak the WHOLE truth. Stand up tall. Leap high. Ask questions. Love hard. Be so curious that you get on people’s nerves.
You *will* feel like barfing.
You *will* fail.
You *will* be rejected.
But you will be rewarded with a flow of joy, love, and fulfillment that far exceeds fear. And the more you do it, the greater it becomes. And, in time, rejection doesn’t seem so big anymore.
