There are many uncertainties in the world, and many certainties. The sky is blue, The Earth is round, and stars exist. Yet, one of the most certainties that we have in life is that there will be a time in our life that will be faced with rejection. Yes, Rejection is something that none of us wants to experience, yet will have to experience over the course of our own lives. Yet, what makes rejection so devastating to us. Firstly we have to analyze what rejection is. Definition of rejection is to refuse to believe, accept, or consider. Now, read that one more time and see what is unique about the definition. Your refusal to believe that person can be a rejection. Your refusal to accept a person can be a rejection. And finally, Your refusal to consider that person is also a rejection. Therefore, there is no ambiguity that rejection is all-encompassing. When you don’t believe in a person, accept a person, or even consider that person, than that is the worst kind of rejection. It is a total isolation. That’s why it hurts so badly. Therefore, don’t let rejection be the cause of the sadness in your life.Embrace it, through the process of synthetic happiness. This will be discussed in the next post.
It is a fact of Life that Life is hard. I am not going to sugar-coat it for you, Life is very hard. When I think of life, I remember the words of Rocky Balboa to his son:
I really like how Balboa here is telling his son that life is a boxing match. In a boxing match, It is all about your will to win and how much you can endure. If you want to win , you have to survive just a little bit longer than the other guy. We need to face life not with a weak or half-hearted will but with a will of stone. For you see, when a stone is thrown around, it still maintains it shape. When it is pounded second by second by the blades of a river, its edges are smoothed out. A rock endures through its tribulations, so why shouldn’t are wills be like a stone: determined, unwavering, and solid.
