You’ve been married to who you thought was the “love of your life” for the last 20 years. Suddenly, you get informed that your love is divorcing you for another person. After being blindsided, you emerge from your shock coma and after the shock wears off feel:
- What did I do?
- What could I have done differently?
- Why did he/she leave?
- Can I get them back?
- Will they come back?
And then it’s:
OMG I’LL NEVER FIND SOMEONE ELSE – I’M TOO (FAT, POOR, UGLY, DUMB, ETC…)!
Then it’s doom and despair.
I have heard this story so often, that I know exactly how it’s going to end when he or she is only 5 sec into the story.
You know what? Rejection has a bad rep. Being on the rejected end of rejection isn’t a bad thing. What it means is that your life is changing. You have a chance to start over – to reinvent yourself. Whatever it is that has left, there is always something better to take its place. The trick is not to get anchored in the past. The more steadfast you are in remembering the past or what might have been, the longer the better stuff is going to take to get to you.
So the next time you are fired, laid off, dumped, divorced, kicked out, passed up, not called, or forgotten, don’t think of yourself as being rejected and thrown under the bus — think of yourself as being set free to drive the bus.
Have you been set free lately? Tell me about it in the comments below!
