Everyone experiences some form of rejection during the course of their life. It can be delivered from those closest to us or virtually anyone at any given time. Not everyone processes rejection the same. Depending upon the intensity of the rejection, for a few, it’s a brief encounter with disappointment, then time to move forward and press on.
For others, it can be a catastrophic event, precipitating a monumental crisis, followed by tremendous feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, humiliation, profound despair, sorrow, heartache, misery, and abandonment –all which can lead to acute grief, situational depression, resentment, ruminating thoughts, self-loathing, and in some cases even rage.
