Rejection in dating
As years went by and I took on more risks, I invited more rejection into my life.The boy I crushed on for months only wanted to be friends. Many literary agents thought my manuscript wasn’t a good fit for them.
From being the last to be chosen to join the volleyball team to receiving a college admissions response in the dreaded “thin envelope,” I quickly learned that not everybody thought the highest of me.
It may be that their decision means you don’t get to be their lover, their life partner or even their friend, but you have to respect that it’s their life and their decision all the same.
We all have the right to make choices and plans that we believe fit us best, we do it every day.
It might be a fear that we aren’t good enough, a fear of being judged or often in romantic relationships, a fear of being rejected.
When it comes to getting to know someone and gradually unveiling your personality, beliefs or even your body, it’s understandable that there may be an element of hesitation involved.
