27 Days of Thanks Day 2️⃣

Rejection- the action of rejecting: the state of being rejected

➖ We’ve all been there…we asked someone for something…a date, a job, a raise, a loan, help in doing something, forgiveness, love, a recommendation, and so on, and we were rejected. Or we started up a business but then not enough clients show up and so we felt rejected.
Oh the devastation inside! 😩
The feeling of utter failure and yes, REJECTION!

➖ Rejection gives rise to many feelings that make us doubt our own self-worth, that cause us to put great big question marks around our value as men, women, human beings. The fact that we have been rejected makes many other accomplishments we may have under our belt pale in comparison. We then give the rejection tremendous power over our own judgment of ourselves.

➖Being rejected stunts our healing and growth, it also paralyzes us and will keep us from going after our dreams out of the fear of rejection!

So grab your journal 📙and answer this question, when was a time you were rejected and why are you thankful that it happened that way?

I’m personally thankful for all the reactions that have occurred in my life, did it hurt yes? But eventually, it was for my good!

Remember sometimes
REJECTION IS REDIRECTION

Day 2️⃣ Journal Prompt:

When was a time I felt rejected, how did I feel?
What did this rejection teach me?
