Yes, rejection stings in many ways. This uncomfortable feeling goes back to the basic wrong idea that we are less than, we see ourselves as not worthy, but most of all that we believe that something outside of ourselves can affect us.
No one can affect us unless we allow it, and no one’s opinion is important to our unfoldment, spiritually or in our life’s journey. All that counts is how do we feel about our work, our relationships, or progress in life. Are we pleased with who we are?
The old saying that “if one door closes, another one opens” is a fact, and should always linger in our minds. There are limitless, wonderful opportunities waiting for us in this limitless universe. We must not get discouraged, ever!
