How to turn heartache into life lessons
Rejection is such a wide topic, and one MANY of us will have to face in our lives. Whether it be rejection from partners, family and loved ones, jobs or opportunities you tried SO hard to get, it's something we all unfortunately will experience. However, despite the pain and heartache it causes, it also provides us life lessons, and the importance of self-care when you are at your lowest.
The initial feeling of rejection will make a lot of people question their self-worth. Was it something I could have done? Do I need to change my character? Was I in the wrong? And a lot of the time, it's never personal, or about you or your character. Therefore, practising self-love at this point is SO important. Instead of questioning your worth, morals and crushing your confidence, it's time to bring yourself up again, and tell yourself and the universe all the reason why you ARE worthy of better opportunities, and if this one didn't bring you light, there are SO many others out there, waiting for you.
I'm a huge believer of self-affirmations, and the importance of speaking to yourself positively, as that becomes the energy you put out in the universe and attract. Therefore, when faced with rejection, instead of putting out negative thoughts about yourself in the universe, learn from the defeat, and put out all the reasons why you're still here, and ready to fight another day and another battle.
Lastly, it is also extremely important to deal with the emotions you're feeling. Like I've mentioned before, rejection is heartbreaking, frustrating and just an awful experience, so if you need to cry, scream and let your emotions out, please do this. We all know how toxic our own minds can become if we keep our feelings in, resulting in emotions coming out in other ways which aren't always helpful. Therefore by letting your frustration and anger out at that moment, instead of suppressing it, will mean when other opportunities come about, you will be less likely to self-sabotage.
Finally, although rejection is something everyone will face in their lives, it doesn't mean it's the be-all or end-all. If one thing didn't work out, please keep faith that there is always something bigger waiting for you in the universe, it just might take a little time. Have hope and keep fighting.
