How to Deal with Rejection

rejection-1 Not all relationships end with “and they stayed together happily ever after” tag. Some relations break down mid- way in the walk of life and then we are at our wit’s end trying to figure out what went wrong. It is comparatively easy for the ‘rejecter’ to move on with life but for the ‘rejected’, it wrecks havoc if it had been a very serious relationship.

One of the toughest things to do is to overcome rejection. Why rejection? Break up is a sort of rejection only by your partner, may be or maybe not for someone else. Whatever the reason, the next step is to gather up your wits and move on. How to do that?

Take Help of Friends: Talk to closest friends about what had happened and what do you think went amiss. Sometimes discussing a relationship helps to perceive it in an entirely new light. It eases some of the pains and when you analyze, you think this was about to happen. You are no more the victim here.

Take Up Some Hobbies: To kill your time, indulge yourself in hobbies or do community services. In helping those who are in dire need, your heart break will seem like a trifle. There are many more things in life to worry about rather than licking your own wound.

Rebound Relations: While they are a good way to get past heart break, it is not advised still. Why should you take advantage of someone else and use him/her as a shoulder to cry on.

Get A Life: The relation is gone and so no use of crying over spilt milk. No amount of convincing and pleas will make him/her to return. What you can do is to enjoy the good and lovely moments you both shared. The best approach is to move on with life. Meet new people, go on a vacation, work more etc.

If you still can’t get optimistic about this, I suggest you seek the help of counseling. They can help to undo the tangled thoughts and instill in you a fresh lease of life. This approach can make you poorer by few dollars but it is worth the effort.
