Dealing with rejection


I don’t think I’ve already covered this, or if I have I’ve not dedicated an entire post to it. Which is strange considering just how much rejection I have faced.

At the end of April I was rejected from my dream job, although I was put on the reserve list so maybe if we keep our fingers and toes crossed it will come to me. Or not and something else will happen that was so meant to be.

And very unlike me, I dealt with it okay. Maybe I’ve experienced so much rejection that I’m immune to it.

I was able to appreciate that getting as far in the recruitment process as I did was an achievement in itself. Many people who get the job are a lot more qualified than me, or a lot more privileged and from better universities.

I was able to appreciate that rejection isn’t the end of the world. It doesn’t mean I’m not enough or I didn’t try hard enough.

It’s just life.

Life makes no sense sometimes especially when your dreams seem to just not be coming together. But I truly believe that one day it will all make sense. l

God has a plan.

He just doesn’t make us aware of that plan.

    Maybe we need to practice flipping the script on the word rejection and look at it that God and the universe has something better in mind! In my years I have seen that what I perceived as rejection turned out to be blessings in disguise!

    When I realized that God is a loving God and not a punishing one, it helped me feel that I’m (as we all are) loved and cherished by the universe! By changing my thoughts on this, I was able then to accept that God and the universe are conspiring to arrange for the greater good in my life. This is true for everyone!
