We try to get a new job and we are rejected.
We reach out to old friends and they will not return our calls. We attempt to do new things and we are stopped in small and big ways.
When we receive these rejections, we withdraw, get really angry and blame others. But what if it is a universal sign of protection. Right now, what if it is better not to get together with that friend or you are better off staying in the old job.
What if the rejection really does protect us from moving on prematurely. Sometimes, the new opportunities have not yet formed and the valuable learning is staying present. It is uncomfortable and many times we feel like we will never get out of these dark feelings.
And we learn that every moment is not awesome. We have a lot to learn in the discomfort. So take a deep breath and feel what you feel. It will pass.............
