Keep reading for FREE
Many times the rejection does 50 percent of the damage and we do the other 50 percent of the damage.
We start with this high volume of negative self-talk and criticism that takes the rejection to another level.
Humans are social animals -- which makes rejection all the more emotionally painful.
Anything that keeps us out of the group in an overt way, we're going to have a hard time with. It's an important aspect of who we are.
People whose self-esteem is lower will experience rejection as more painful, and it'll take them a little longer to get over it. Those who have higher self-esteem -- but who aren't narcissists -- tend to be more resilient.
Rejection-sensitive people might think about 'How can I get myself out of this situation?' or how to avoid a situation altogether.
Do not let it bother you in the first place, and then minimizing its effects after it's wreaked its havoc.
Find someone you can trust to serve as a sounding board can help you gain perspective.
