Why is it when we get rejected we feel so much pain? It’s like to losing an arm or a limb. We blame ourselves what has happened. I have a theory. You go through two phases. One phase, you get redirected and believe for a moment that you are better off without that ‘particular’ person. You generalise and believe it (by repeating it to your self like a mantra) that you are better without.
Phase two, you keep doing it again. Keep on getting rejected. It could be by the opposite gender. It could be a job interview. It could be many things. You just keep doing it again. Like a lesson which has been unlearned. Until you have learnt the lesson.
You just can’t win. Why can’t we see the bigger picture?
