In caveman times, the worst thing that could happen to you was to be rejected. Being rejected from the tribe was certain death: no one to protect you from predators, no one to split their hunting spoils with you, no one to help you build shelter, no one to procreate with. You were done for.
We still fear rejection, particularly when it comes to looking for a job.
But a few keen folks are able to see beyond the rejection for what it is: the problem of the rejector and not the rejectee. And they have been able to exploit and poke fun at said rejectors.
Being rejected is a fabulous way to feel stuck, victimized, and held back.
That is…unless you reject rejection and chart your own path.
