How to Respond to Disapproval

Refusal hurts, but it matters how you react to it. In healthy ways, rejection can foster growth and new opportunities as well as help you develop resilience. Dismissal, however, can in harmful ways suppress your imagination, hurt your self-confidence, and make you unhappy. It might be time to consult a mental health professional if rejection is something you experience frequently. Working through your emotions and identifying any dangerous thoughts and behaviors that are causing the dismissal pattern can be done with the aid of a counselor or psychiatrist.

Keeping Your Emotions under control

Denying your emotions is one of the worst things you can do when you’re rejected. It will only get worse later if you do n’t allow yourself to experience your anger or pain. Determine what you’re feeling and how strong it is by taking the time to do so. Then, try to safely express those feelings through writing ( writing is frequently helpful ).

Prevent drawing hasty opinions. Do n’t assume you know why the person rejected you, whether it was a failed business venture or an unsuccessful first date. It’s simple to assume that after a couple rejections, you are inherently uncharismatic or stupid, which will only make your battling worse.

Convince yourself of your accomplishments and your distinctive characteristics. In order to see other potential interpretations of the rejection that do n’t involve assuming the worst about yourself, it can also be helpful to think about how a wise and sympathetic outsider might interpret the situation.
