Notice if you rush to conclusions about fundamental abilities:
At first, rejection interferes with your need to belong. You move through, not feeling good enough, not worthy, unlovable, confused.
Then you move to introspection, looking for the flaws within yourself that led to the failure.
Instead of gaining control, you subject yourself to the opinion of someone else. It turns you against yourself and away from the truth.
You were not rejected; the outcome you desired was. Be honest about the motives. You might be wanting the wrong thing.
Rejection means that you are going down the wrong path. You need to turn around.
Life is about learning and growing, and understanding that something better is waiting for you. You don't have to embrace the pain of rejection.
