Rejection is probably the biggest fear mid-singles have in dating. In many cases, we may think it means something about our worth or desirability. Thus, it's easy to take rejection personally and either lash out in response or turn inward and stuff unexpressed pain.
Of course, it is easy to say you should not take rejection personally but harder to do in the moment you are experiencing it. Rejection can still feel painful in your gut when your mind knows it's nothing personal. It can seem personal and feel personal. So, what is to be done about it?
Second, self-talk is very important. Take a minute to become free of distractions and ask yourself whether the thoughts you are having really reflect a personal rejection, or if it is just another person making a choice different than you might have hoped.
