How To Handle Rejection!
Rejection Is Not The End Of The World!
If you think about it, rejection can be so very, very devastating. It can break your heart and leave scars that can last for years if not dealt with appropriately.
Some things that can hurt are; mean words, bullying, ridicule, being sworn at, being told you are hated, called ugly, called stupid, being unwanted.
All these types of degrading words and action all can be the source of deep wounds to anyone of us! Most likely you have experienced some or all of these things.
We give other a lot of power and control over us. But if we are wise, we can break that bondage and go to God for your acceptance and love that you need!
Do not let rejection knock the wind out of you, stand up for yourself and do not allow others to attack you repetitively. Get with a close friend or family member. Work out solutions to any rejection you might be experiencing. ~ Bill Greguska

Do You Need To Overcome Some Rejection?
How Were You Rejected In Your Life?
I was lucky that most people always liked me while growing up. I played basketball in grade school and Pius High school which made being popular pretty easy. People knew me as a friendly guy, a little goofy, but with a good sense of humor.
But that was often a strong point on my behalf. I had my share of rejections in my life; each eventually became a lesson that I had to learn. People being cold and mean to me Breaking up with girls I dated, ending friendships or others ending them for me, losing jobs, losing basketball games, etc.
Sometimes our hearts must go through the crushing times of pain, despair, ridicule, and rejection, but we can find comfort knowing that God will never leave us or forsake us, we need to call on Him in prayer and walk with Him each day.
Keeping this perspective is how we can make sense of life and endure. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair 2 Corinthians 4:8.
I am sure that you too can relate such rejections in your life also. So, what do you do with them? First, take all you anxiety to the Lord because He cares for you. He has a plan for your life and does not want you to lose heart. The thing about it is, you need to trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding, but follow His will and plan for your life and leave the rest to Him.
Dealing With Rejection The Right Way!
Parents And The Over Used Threat Of Divorce!
My fear of rejection in my home came from displeasing my mom and oldest brother Tom in a healthy way, or my older sisters picking on me and negatively teasing me.
But the real rejections I felt were in school when it came to not being good enough to get good grades or for a while not having many friends. I was fortunate that I was the tallest and was physically strong and my classmates never really bothered me.
The kids in my neighborhood were most all older than me, and some of them did pick on me when we played football and baseball across the street. Fortunately, I was very fast so often I could run from trouble, I do believe every kid and even adult has to deal with rejection and certain degrees of torment and ridicule in life.
Being very fortunate that my parents loved each other, and the thought of abandonment or rejection came once that I can recall when my mom and dad had a terrible argument, and the word divorce was said only once that I was ever aware of, and thank God it was only once, which was very scary to me.
I was about seven years old, and I still can recall thinking with my 7-year-old mind the question of what would I do and where would I live if they separated? It makes me very sad to think that over 50% of couples get divorced, and the kids have to carry the burden of rejection because parents can not get along.
