How can I not talk about it when I have feared it all along my life ?
We all fear rejection and at times girls outscore boys when it comes to this particular zone( This point of view is purely from the fact that guys at least approach girls for relationships knowing that the chances of getting rejected are high). I know that sounds weird but that’s the way I have seen at least in India.
Why do we fear it? Simply because it hurts our ego. Sadly our egoistic self enjoys the triumph AGAIN. (Refer here)
We all have our comfort zones and we tend to just settle in it refraining to move out. Blame the predetermined notion in our mind that rejection will be the only return in case we try doing something different or something out of our comfort zone.
Rejection cannot be just associated with our career or relationship. In fact I feel there are no boundaries and probably this could be the worst thing. We can stretch this point to simplest of the things like not wearing a particular dress or an accessory fearing negative comments-Rejection!
I am no different. I fear communicating or approaching people fearing refusal in return. This fear restrained me from publicizing about my blog too. I did not share about it with anyone because of this prolonged thought that I will not receive any appreciation for my work. But a single realization lead me to sharing about it with more people. I reminded myself of the purpose of creating this site and it was simply sharing my thoughts. Conveying my words in the most simple way I can so that people can relate to it. I have always loved sharing my ideas and thoughts with people and I couldn’t think of a better platform than this.
One of our professor always stressed on this point. He used to say rejection should never be taken as rejection but a blessing in disguise because it clears the ambiguity spread in the atmosphere because of the situation and with the “NO” word we are now more clear about our path.
We just waste our mental resources by feeling dejected by rejection. Instead clear your mind and take a positive look at this aspect. There is definitely always a way out..
