Rejection stings! When we are rejected we feel dismissed, insignificant, somehow lacking or not good enough.
The next time you are rejected count your blessings, you are being redirected to something better.
Rejection is protection from misery and a course correction towards your destiny.
Keep shining brightly and trust in your journey.
We habitually erect a barrier called blame that keeps us from communicating genuinely with others, and we fortify it with our concepts of who’s right and who’s wrong.
We do that with the people who are closest to us and we do it with political systems, with all kinds of things that we don’t like about our associates or our society.
It is a very common, ancient, well-perfected device for trying to feel better.
Blaming is a way to protect your heart, trying to protect what is soft and open and tender in yourself.
Rather than own that pain, we scramble to find some comfortable ground.
