Dealing with rejection
What is rejection?
I looked at it, observed it, turned it upside down, opened it up, befriended it.
Rejection is fear.
I noticed where I was feeling it in my body. In my heart chakra. It is fear of not being loved. Of not receiving love.
I sat with it. Gave it space to be fully realized and fully felt. To let it reach its crest like a wave on the ocean, so that after coming to its peak it subsides and is washed away.
Gave it space to exist and be recognized. A need to be loved.
So how do I deal with that? I have created a foundation of enduring self-love. It is unshakeable. I don’t have to rely on the uncertainties and unpredictability of the outside world. People will come and go from my life. The love that is extended towards me from the outside will come and go. It is impermanent and uncertain.
My own love, though. My own love is eternal and indestructible.
Rejection. A friend that helps me understand myself.
